Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

While this facility's overall grade was as bad as it gets, it actually didn't perform terribly in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of B- for that category, which is one of our better scores. Inspection scores weigh a host of factors included in a facility's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we consider is the number and severity of deficiencies. This facility was hit with 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered severe. This indicates that the inspectors didn't deem any of these deficiencies an imminent risk to resident safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Tragically, this facility received an F for its short-term care grade. In our short-term care assessment, we seek to create a fair measure for rehabilitation. In doing so, we assess the facility's offerings of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. Not surprisingly, we discovered that this nursing home offers substantially less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than the typical facility. Lastly, we considered the number of patients who who were able to eventually return home from this nursing home. This place performed better in this area, with 49.5 percent of its patients returning home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

This facility ended up receiving rock bottom score in our nursing category. It received an F in this category. There are a variety of subcategories included in this category. Most of the datapoints are tied to staffing levels. This facility provided just 3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. To pair with its low totals in the area of nursing hours per patient, this facility also didn't fare as well in the quality-based measures we looked at in determining our nursing grades. We looked at the percent of residents sustaining pressure ulcers and major falls. This facility had more pressure ulcers and falls than the average nursing home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Switching gears to the fourth area, this nursing home really didn't fare well in this category either. Due to a very poor grade of F in long-term care, this is just about as as uninspiring as it gets. In a long-term care setting, the nursing home's primary objective is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate residents. On top of assessing the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 98.26389 percent of its patients, which is better than the average nursing home. To our surprise, this nursing home also fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had just 0.98 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Sadly, some of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.
