Facility Inspections


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 C. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining these inspection ratings. One key factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some end up being quite insignificant. This nursing home was assessed 3 deficiencies on its government inspection report, but we were relieved to find that none were in categories G through L. This means that it dodged the more significant classes of deficiencies. Finally, they also received 42 substantiated complaints in recent years. This is certainly not a great sign.

Short-term Care Quality


We were also stunned to learn that this facility received a somewhat respectable short-term care rating this year. We awarded it a C in that category. In the category of short-term care, we attempt to qualify indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We analyze the facility's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. One reason for this facility's strong score in this category is that it provides a greater volume of physical therapist hours to its residents than the average nursing home. Lastly, we considered the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most facilities, closer to half of their residents are able to return home so this is below average.

Nurse Quality


We were surprised to find that this facility also excelled in the category of nursing. We awarded it an impressive grade of D for that category, which is one of our best scores. When determining our nursing grades, we factor in both nursing hours and the training levels of the nurses. This nursing home provides 3.7 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is slightly below average. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing scores. This facility performed well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these datapoints to be measures of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality


Moving on to our next area, this facility did not fare well in this category either. With an abysmal grade of F in long-term care, this is about as as uninspiring as it gets. When facilities receive this kind of score in long-term care it is a bad sign for resident care and it may indicate that the facility is not as well-staffed with nurses and aids. On top of looking at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. We were not able to track down information about this nursing home's vaccination rates. Surprisingly, this place was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility had less hospitalizations than many nursing homes. This is its best score in this category.
