Facility Inspections

Grade: A

While we were not high on this nursing home overall, we awarded it an A for our inspections rating. This score is significantly more impressive than the facility's overall score. Our inspection ratings weigh several factors included in a facility's inspection reports. One key criteria we consider is the number and severity of deficiencies. You generally want to avoid facilities with too many deficiencies flagged. Although this facility had a few deficiencies on its report, none of them were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. A few minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Unfortunately, this facility only earned a D for its short-term care rating, which happens to be one of its higher category scores. In calculating our short-term care grades, we assess a facility's levels of skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists respiratory therapists and other types of therapists. This grade is considered to be a meaningful assessment of a facility's rehabilitation. With a score in this range in this area, we weren't stunned to find that this place was well below average in several staffing figures we looked at. It provided far fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than most nursing homes. The final datapoint we considered in this category is the number of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these poor statistics doomed this nursing home's short-term care score.

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. The nursing grade weighs many datapoints, but the most important one is the number of nurse hours per patient per week. This nursing home averaged a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident daily. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing scores. This facility fared well in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these statistics to be measures of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The last category we scored was long-term care. It received an abysmal F in this category, which is a bottom of the barrel grade. Long-term care ratings of this caliber generally are a bad sign for the quantity and quality of care provided by nurses and aids. One of the criteria we considered after nursing hours was vaccines. Candidly, we were a bit bothered by the fact that this nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccination to only 82.089554 percent of its residents. Surprisingly, this facility actually fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had just 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This was its best feature in this category.
