Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

While this nursing home's overall grade was as bad as it gets, it actually didn't perform terribly in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a B- for that category, which is one of our better scores. Inspection scores account for several factors included in a facility's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we consider is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Although this nursing home had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were serious based on CMS' deficiency scale. Lastly, this facility was flagged by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. We prefer to avoid facilities with this designation. Please do your best to find an alternative nursing home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

We were also surprised to find that this nursing home earned a decent long-term care grade this year. We gave it a C in that category. Our long-term care grades are pivotal for people needing non-healthcare services such as personal care. After considering the volume of nursing care, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination statistics. Frankly, we were a bit concerned this nursing home vaccinated just 71.83544 percent of its patients for pneumonia. Nevertheless, this nursing home keeps its patients out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Tragically, we gave this facility an F for its short-term care grade. Our short-term care grade is typically employed to grade a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation In order to provide highly scored rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to offer higher levels of skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other highly skilled individuals. Not surprisingly, we found that this place offers significantly less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than the typical nursing home. Finally, we looked at the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This definitely was not a strength for this facility. We found that just 4 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home. At most nursing homes, around half of their residents are able to return home so this is well below average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

Turning to our final category, this nursing home really didn't perform well in this category either. Due to a bottom of the barrel grade of F in nursing, this is about as bad as it gets. When computing our nursing scores, we factor in both staffing levels and the skill levels of those nurses. This facility averaged a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. To go along with its low totals in the area of nursing hours per patient, this nursing home also didn't fare as well in the quality-based measures we looked at in computing our nursing ratings. We looked at the percent of residents sustaining pressure ulcers and major falls. This place had more falls and pressure ulcers than the average facility. This may be a bad sign when you consider that many falls and bed sores are believed to be preventable with better nursing care. These scores pulled down this nursing home's nursing grade quite a bit.
