Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

Although we gave this facility a terrible overall grade, we awarded it a B- for our inspections rating. In fact, the facility received very impressive inspection report this year. Inspection scores weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these issues by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Fortunately, although this facility had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Finally, CMS flagged this nursing home for possible abuse or neglect. This is not what you want to see. We advise you to direct your search elsewhere.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

In our next category, we gave this nursing home a rock-bottom F in the category of long-term care. Nursing homes that don't fare well in this category often do not provide as much nursing care and also may be struggling in a few of the areas of routine personal care we assessed. One of the criteria we considered in addition to nursing hours was vaccines. Candidly, we were a bit concerned this facility administered the pneumonia vaccine to only 86.06195 percent of its residents. Surprisingly, this nursing home was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 1.07 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility has less hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. This is its best score in this category.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The third category we analyzed is short-term care, where this facility was given an F. Our short-term care scores are believed to be more important for people in need of rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation usually utilizes additional highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes not only nursing, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. As you might expect, we learned that this nursing home offers significantly less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the typical facility. Finally, we considered the percentage of residents that ultimately were able to return home from this facility. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 36.7 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

The last area we rated is nursing, in which this facility received an abysmal grade in this area also. We gave it an F for this category, which is obviously somewhat alarming. We assessed the skill-level of nurses employed by the nursing home, in addition to the quantity of hours the nurses spent with residents, in determining our grade in this area. With just 1.9 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis, this nursing home's nurse staffing levels were far below average. In addition to rating below average in nursing hours per resident, this nursing home also had poor marks in the quality-based measures we looked at in calculating our nursing grades. We looked at the percent of residents experiencing pressure ulcers and major falls. This nursing home was at roughly 150 percent of the national average in both of these metrics. This is a bad sign when you consider that many falls and bed sores are believed to be preventable with better nursing care. These metrics helped pull down this nursing home's nursing grade quite a bit.
