Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

To pair with its relatively modest overall grade, we gave this nursing home an A- for its inspection grade. This grade is far more impressive than its overall grade. These inspection grades take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This particular nursing home received 6 deficiencies on its inspection report. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is always a good sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Another one of this nursing home's more impressive category grades came in the category of long-term care. In that category, we awarded this nursing home a grade of B+. It actually outpaced most facilities in this category. In a long-term care environment, the primary objective is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. On top of looking at the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 62.962963 percent of its patients, which is a few points less than we were hoping for. While its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we had hoped, we were pleased to find place was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

Next we wanted to quickly point out one of this facility's major weaknesses. In the area of nursing care, we gave this nursing home a lowly grade of F. Our nursing score weighs several components, many of which are tied to levels of nurse staffing. This facility offered only 0.2 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This is an alarmingly low total. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing ratings. This facility fared well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these metrics to be measures of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The next area we rated is short-term care, which proved to be this facility's weakest area. Unfortunately, we gave it an F for this category, which is certainly a major concern. In our short-term care score, we seek to craft a sound gauge for rehabilitation. In this process, we look at the facility's levels of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. Finally, we considered the percentage of patients who returned home from this facility. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was quite a bit off the national average.
