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 grade of B- for that category, which is one of our better scores. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining these inspection scores. One of those factors is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these end up being relatively insignificant. While this facility had a few minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you that the inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A few minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

Turning to the area of nursing care, this facility received a grade of just D in this category. Unfortunately, this ended up being one of its better grades. Nursing grades are mostly associated with a facility's nurse staffing. This nursing home averaged just 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient daily. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This place fared well in terms of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these metrics to be reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Tragically, we gave this facility an F for its long-term care grade. When nursing homes receive this type of grade in this category it is a bad sign for patient care and it may mean that the nursing home is not as well-staffed with nurses and aids. After assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination data. We were concerned by the fact that this facility vaccinated a relatively low 89.928055 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Surprisingly, this place was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility had less hospitalizations than the average nursing home. This was its best score in this category.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The last area we rated was short-term care. We gave it a lowly F in this category, which is a poor grade. In the category of short-term care, we seek to assess measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We assess the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. Based on its abysmal score in this area, we were not shocked to find that this facility provided significantly fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most facilities. The final datapoint we looked at in this category is the percentage of patients that were able to return home from the facility. This facility struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 4.5 percent of its residents returning home. This was well below average.
