Facility Inspections

Grade: A

While we graded this nursing home incredibly poorly overall, it actually received an impressive inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our highest scores in that category with an A. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining our inspection ratings. One of those factors is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies are quite insignificant. Although this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none were serious based on CMS' scale. A few minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

In our next category, we gave this facility a rock-bottom F in the area of long-term care. For patients seeking a permanent residence as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care is a very important category. In addition to considering the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. Fortunately, this facility gave the vaccine to 99.48718 percent of its residents, which is an above average total. To our surprise, this facility also fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Unfortunately, this facility received an F for its short-term care grade. Our short-term care grades are based in part on a nursing home's quantity of skilled nursing services. This means a vast spectrum of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, in addition to other types of therapy. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. Lastly, we considered the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This definitely wasn't a strength for this nursing home. We found that just 4.4 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most facilities, about half of their patients are able to return home so this is well below average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

The last area we rated was nursing. This facility was given an abysmal grade of F in that category. Nursing ratings are tied to nurse staffing levels. With a meager 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident daily, this facility's nurse staffing levels were significantly below average. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing grades. This nursing home fared well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
