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-. We would argue that one of the most important factors in assessing an inspection report is deficiencies. In this regard, we especially focus on the severity of the deficiencies. While this facility had some minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G through L. This means CMS didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A few minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

Surprisingly, we gave this facility a grade of C for our short-term care grade, which isn't too bad of a score. In the area of short-term care, we endeavor to qualify indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We look at a facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. Unfortunately, we found that this facility provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other nursing homes. The tricky part is determining what bearing this had on the quality of care. Finally, we looked at the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most facilities, closer to half of their patients are able to return home so this figure is below average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

We gave this facility a grade of just D for our nursing rating. In determining a facility's nursing rating, we look at the number of hours nurses spend with patients and the level of licensure of those nurses. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing ratings. This nursing home performed well in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these datapoints to be reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The last category we looked at was long-term care. Sadly, it received an abysmal F in this area, which is a bottom of the barrel score. When nursing homes receive this kind of score in this category it is often a bad sign for resident care and it may indicate that the facility is not as well-staffed with nurses and aids. Once we assessed the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination record. We were a bit alarmed this nursing home vaccinated 85.36585 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which happens to be quite a few points below what we were hoping for. Surprisingly, this nursing home was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home had less hospitalizations than many nursing homes. This was its best feature in this category.
