Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

Although we gave this place a terrible overall grade, we awarded it a B+ for our inspections rating. This was the result of the facility receiving a quality government inspection report this year. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating these inspection ratings. One of those factors is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some can be quite minor. While this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its report, none were severe based on CMS' scale. A few minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Unfortunately, we gave this facility an F for its short-term care grade. With our short-term care score, we seek to create a sound measure for rehabilitation. In this process, we look at the nursing home's offerings of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. Given its poor grade, we were not shocked to find that this nursing home provided substantially fewer registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. The last statistic we looked at in this area is the number of residents who ultimately returned home from the facility. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this area, with just 37.8 percent of its residents returning home. Unfortunately, this was well below the national average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

Among this nursing home's several poor grades was its F in the area of nursing care. Our nursing rating is primarily tied to a facility's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 2.6 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Unfortunately, this nursing home also had terrible marks in some of the quality-based measures to go along with its low nursing hours. We looked at the percentage of patients experiencing pressure ulcers and we were disappointed. This nursing home was at roughly 150 percent of the national average in this statistic. This is a bad sign when you consider that so many bed sores are preventable with better nursing care. This metric helped pull down this nursing home's nursing rating significantly.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The next area we looked at is long-term care. Unfortunately, we gave it an F in this category, which is an abysmal score. If you are looking for anything other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each facility's long-term care ratings. After assessing the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination records. We were pleased to find that this nursing home vaccinated 96.420044 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Surprisingly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 1.12 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home had fewer hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.
