Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

Although we gave this facility a terrible overall grade, we awarded it a B- for our inspections rating. In fact, the facility received very impressive inspection report this year. These inspection scores take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Although this place had a few deficiencies on its report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. A couple minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

One of the other reasons we graded this nursing home so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing grade. Nursing turned out to be its second best category grade. In that area, we awarded this nursing home an F. In determining a nursing home's nursing grade, we look at the number of hours nurses are seeing residents and the skill levels of those nurses. This place provided a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This figure is significantly below the national average. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing scores. This facility fared well when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these statistics to be good measures of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Our third category we analyzed is long-term care, where this nursing home received an F. When nursing homes receive a grade in this range in this category it generally means the facility did not perform well in our quality measures relating to resident care. Once we assessed the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination record. We were concerned by the fact that this facility vaccinated a relatively low 81.08108 percent of its residents for pneumonia. Surprisingly, this nursing home was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home had less hospitalizations than the average nursing home. This is its best feature in this category.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Turning to the last area, this nursing home really did not perform very well in this area either. Due to an abysmal grade of F in short-term care, this is just about as bad as it gets. With our short-term care score, we try to forge a sound gauge for rehabilitation. In this process, we look at the facility's levels of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. Considering its grade in this category, we weren't stunned to find that this nursing home is well below average in terms of its number of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its patients based on the metrics we looked at. Frankly, this was what we expected here. The final metric we considered in this category 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 metric as well, with just 2.7 percent of its patients returning home. Unfortunately, this was quite a bit below the national average.
