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 grades are tied to pieces of information found on 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 resident safety. Although this facility had a few deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. A couple minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home also didn't grade out terribly in the area of long-term care. In fact, we gave it a grade of C for that area, which ended up being among its more respectable scores. For residents looking for a permanent place to live as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care is an important category. Once we looked at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination statistics. Frankly, we were a bit concerned this nursing home vaccinated 89.7351 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is quite a bit less than what we were hoping for. The last datapoint we looked at is the facility's hospitalization rate. Here we found that this facility had a relatively high 3.71 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Neither its vaccination record nor its hospitalization rate were strengths for this nursing home in this area.

Moving on to the last category, this nursing home really did not fare very well in this area either. Due to a rock bottom grade of F in nursing, this is about as bad as it gets. Our nursing grade assesses the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. We factor in both the levels of training of those nurses as well as the quantity of hours spent with residents. This nursing home provides 3.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. To pair with its subpar totals in the area of nursing hours per resident, this place also did not perform as well in the quality-based measures we looked at in calculating our nursing ratings. We looked at the percentage of patients experiencing pressure ulcers and major falls. This place had more pressure ulcers and falls than the average nursing home. This may be a bad sign when you consider that many bed sores and falls are believed to be preventable with better nursing care. These scores pulled down this nursing home's nursing grade significantly.
