Facility Inspections

Grade: B

Although this nursing home's overall score was as bad as it gets, it actually fared well in the category of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a B for that category, which is one of our better scores. Arguably the most significant factor we consider in determining our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a nursing home's inspection reports. It is generally best to avoid nursing homes that had a long list of deficiencies. While this nursing home had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were serious based on CMS' scale. A few minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

We were also surprised to find that this facility received a decent nursing grade this year. We gave it a grade of C in that category. Our nursing score is mostly tied to the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This particular nursing home provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This figure is far below average. Lastly, nursing scores also factor in quality-based assessments, such as preventing major falls. Despite not having the highest total nursing hours per resident, this facility actually performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is generally a reliable indicator that a nursing home has sufficient quality controls in place. Many falls can be avoided if a nursing home supplies enough nurses aids to assist its residents.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

This nursing home's second worse score was long-term care, where it earned just a D in that area. This is a relatively poor score. Facilities that don't fare well in long-term care typically are not as well-staffed and are lagging in some of the areas of routine personal care we assessed. One of the factors we considered on top of nursing hours is vaccines. Frankly, we were a bit alarmed this nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccination to only 82.51428 percent of its patients. Surprisingly, this place was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home has less hospitalizations than most nursing homes. This is its best score in this category.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The next category we rated was short-term care, where this facility received an abysmal score here also. Sadly, it received an abysmal F for this category, which is definitely very concerning. Short-term care ratings are crucial for patients looking for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually mandates higher levels of skilled nursing services. This includes a broad scope of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Based on its grade in this category, we were not stunned to learn that this facility was well below average in terms of its number of registered nurse and physical therapy hours offered to its patients based on the data we looked at. Honestly, this was about what we expected here. The last statistic we looked at in this area is the number of residents that who were able to eventually return home from the facility. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 4.3 percent of its patients returning home. This was quite a bit below average.
