Facility Inspections

Grade: A

While we were not very complementary of this facility's overall grade, it received a very impressive inspection report this year. In fact, it received an excellent inspection report this year. As a result, it earned one of our highest scores in that category with an A. Inspection ratings weigh several factors included in a nursing home's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we rely on is the number and severity of deficiencies. You generally want to avoid facilities with a list of severe deficiencies flagged. Although this place had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were serious based on CMS' scale. A few minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home's second best area was long-term care. We gave it a B- in this category. This is essentially a slightly below average grade in this area. Long-term care grades are typically used to assess a nursing home's performance as a traditional convalescent home, as opposed to focusing more on the skilled nursing services provided by a rehabilitation facility. On top of assessing the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. Thankfully, this facility provided the vaccine to 98.381874 percent of its patients, which is an above average datapoint. Lastly, this facility was also able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

This facility's next best category was nursing, but even there it received a grade of just D. This is still a well below average grade. We weighed the qualifications of nurses at the facility, as well as the quantity of hours the nurses spent with residents, in computing our grade in this category. This facility offered a meager 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This place fared well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Turning to the next area, this facility didn't fare very well in this category either. Due to a rock bottom grade of F in short-term care, this is about as bad as it gets. In calculating our short-term care scores, we look at the nursing home's levels of skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other highly skilled individuals. This area is considered to be a fair measure of the nursing home's rehabilitation. With its weak score in this area, we were not surprised to find that this place offered significantly fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than most facilities. The last measure we considered in this category is the percentage of residents that ultimately returned home from the nursing home. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 3.8 percent of its residents returning home.
