Facility Inspections

Grade: A

Although we did not rate this nursing home highly overall, we want to draw your attention to its nearly flawless government inspections in recent years. We awarded them an impressive grade of A in this category. These inspection scores weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these issues by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This nursing home was hit with 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered to be major deficiencies. This indicates that CMS did not consider any of the deficiencies to create an imminent threat to resident safety or health. A few minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

This nursing home's second highest category was long-term care, but it nevertheless earned just a D in that area. This still happens to be a well below average grade. For patients seeking a permanent place to live as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care is an important category. One of the criteria we considered after nurse's aid hours was vaccinations. Fortunately, this facility provided the pneumonia vaccine to 99.00662 percent of its patients. Surprisingly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home has fewer hospitalizations than most nursing homes. Sadly, some of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

We awarded this nursing home a grade of just D for our short-term care rating. This is not a score to write home about. Short-term care grades are commonly used to assess a facility's rehabilitation services To offer quality rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must have better levels of highly skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other highly skilled individuals. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. The final metric we looked at in this area is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these subpar statistics doomed this nursing home's short-term care grade.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

Turning to our next category, this nursing home really didn't perform well in this area either. Due to a very poor grade of F in nursing, this is about as terrible as it gets. Nursing ratings are tied to nurse staffing levels. This place provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient per day. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these statistics to be indicators of the quality of nursing care.
