Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

While we were not high on this place overall, we awarded it a B+ for our inspections rating. This score is far more impressive than the nursing home's overall grade. Our inspection scores account for several factors included in a nursing home's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we rely on is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. You generally want to avoid places with a list of deficiencies flagged. Amazingly, this was one of the few nursing homes in the country that had no deficiencies whatsoever on its inspection report. This is very impressive. Not having any deficiencies is this nursing home's greatest accomplishment.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

One of the other reasons we graded this facility so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing grade. This turned out to be its second best category grade. In that category, we awarded this nursing home an C. We weighed the qualifications of nurses employed by the facility, in addition to the number of hours the nurses spent with patients, in computing our score in this area. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Lastly, nursing grades also consider quality-based measures, such as avoiding major falls. Despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours, this facility performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is usually an indicator that a place has quality controls in place. Many falls can be avoided if a nursing home supplies enough nurses aids to assist its patients.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

We gave this nursing home just a D for our short-term care grade. This is not an impressive grade. In crafting these short-term care grades, we analyze the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our purpose is to formulate a tool for comparing the rehabilitation services of various nursing homes. With its poor grade in this area, we were not surprised to discover that this place offered substantially fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other facilities. The final item we assessed in this category is the percentage of residents who ultimately were able to return home from the facility. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 5.4 percent of its patients returning home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

This nursing home's least impressive area was long-term care, which is the last area we analyzed. For this area, we gave this facility a grade of D. Nursing homes that don't fare well in this category often do not provide as much nursing care and also may be lagging in some of the areas of routine medical care we looked at. In addition to considering the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 92.94118 percent of its residents. This is a few points below what we expected but still a respectable figure. To our surprise, this facility was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home had less hospitalizations than many nursing homes. This was its best feature in this category.
