Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

While this facility'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 grades account for several factors included in a facility's inspection reports. One key criteria we look at is the number and severity of deficiencies. This nursing home was hit with 10 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This tells you that the inspectors didn't consider any of these deficiencies to pose an imminent risk to resident health or safety. A few minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

Unfortunately, this facility only received a grade of D for its nursing grade, which was actually one of its better category grades. Nursing scores are largely tied to the facility's level of nurse staffing. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing ratings. This nursing home performed well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these statistics to be good measures of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

We awarded this facility just a D for our short-term care rating. This is not a very good score. In our short-term care rating, we try to craft a fair gauge for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we look at a nursing home's level of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home offers substantially less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than the average facility. Lastly, we looked at the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. This definitely wasn't a strength for this nursing home. We found that just 5.1 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most nursing homes, about half of their patients are able to return home so this is well below average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

This nursing home's weakest area was long-term care, which is the final area we scored. In this category, we gave this facility a grade of just D. Facilities that do not score well in this category often don't provide as much nursing care and also may be struggling in a few of the areas of routine medical care we assessed. After looking at the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination records. This nursing home vaccinated 92.628204 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which happens to be a bit below what we were hoping for but still a decent percentage. Surprisingly, this nursing home was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home has less hospitalizations than the average nursing home. This is its best score in this category.
