Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

While we graded this facility incredibly poorly overall, it received a fairly respectable inspection report this year. As a result, it received a decent grade in that category with a score of B-. Our inspection ratings are tied to datapoints located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are an important item to look for on these reports. Severe deficiencies indicate a risk to patient safety. While this place had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you that the inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

One of the other reasons we graded this facility so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing rating. Nursing turned out to be its second best category grade. In that category, we awarded this facility an D. We analyzed the skill-level of nurses working for the nursing home, in addition to the quantity of hours the nurses spent with patients, in calculating our score in this area. This place averaged only 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing ratings. This facility fared well in terms of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these areas to be good measures of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Our third area we looked at is short-term care, in which this facility received an F. Our short-term care grade is generally employed to grade a nursing home's rehabilitation services In order to provide highly rated rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must offer better levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other highly trained professionals. Considering its poor score in this area, we were not surprised to find that this facility provided substantially fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than most nursing homes. The final measure we considered in this area is the number of patients that who were able to eventually return home from the nursing home. This facility struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 4.2 percent of its patients returning home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The final category we scored was long-term care, in which this nursing home was given a poor grade here also. We gave it an F in this area, which is obviously a major disappointment. In a long-term care environment, the facility's primary goal is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. Once we assessed the amount of nursing care, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination records. We were pleased to discover that this facility vaccinates 95.77039 percent of its residents for pneumonia. Surprisingly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home has less hospitalizations than most nursing homes. Sadly, a few of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.
