Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

While this place'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. Our inspection ratings are tied to pieces of information found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are an important thing to look for on these reports. Severe deficiencies indicate a threat to patient safety. This particular nursing home received 8 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a solid inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

We were also surprised to find that this facility received a solid short-term care rating this year. We gave it a C in that category. Our short-term care grades are based on a facility's quantity of skilled nursing services. This includes a wide range of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. We found that this place was below average in the two key staffing areas we assessed. The facility provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other nursing homes. It is important to determine whether this is adversely impacting the quality of care. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 5.2 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most nursing homes, closer to half of their patients are able to return home so this figure is below average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The third category we analyzed was long-term care, in which this nursing home was given an F. For long-term care residents, the facility's primary goal is to keep patients healthy and safe. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. Once we finished looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses, we next considered the facility's vaccination records. We were pleased to find that this nursing home vaccinated 97.28097 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Surprisingly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.03 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility has less hospitalizations than many nursing homes. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

Moving on to the next area, this nursing home didn't perform well in this area either. Due to a bottom of the barrel grade of F in nursing, this is just about as terrible as it gets. The nursing score is based on quite a few data points, but the primary one is the number of nurse hours spent with patients. With just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day, this facility's nurse staffing levels were significantly below the national average. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing ratings. This facility fared well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
