Facility Inspections

Grade: B

Although this facility's overall score was not a highlight, it did receive a very good score in the category of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a B for that category, which is one of our better scores. Inspection grades are based on many items located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are a key thing to look for on these inspections. Most importantly, you should avoid facilities that have severe deficiencies linked to risks to resident well being. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Even with this deficiency, this was still a relatively favorable inspection report.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

This facility also was given a strong long-term care grade. In fact, we awarded them a grade of B in this category, which happens to be one of our better. In a long-term care setting, the nursing home's primary goal is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate residents. After we finished looking at the amount of care provided by nurses, we then looked at the facility's vaccination records. This facility vaccinated 81.818184 percent of its residents for pneumonia. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

We also wanted to point out that this nursing home received an F for its nursing grade. When computing a nursing home's nursing score, we look at the number of hours nurses are caring for residents and the level of licensure of those nurses. This place averaged just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident each day. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing grades. This facility performed well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Moving on to our next area, this facility did not perform very well here either. Due to a bottom of the barrel grade of F in short-term care, this is really as bad as it gets. In crafting these short-term care scores, we look at the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. Our goal is to formulate a scale for sizing up the rehabilitation services of various facilities. Based on its score in this category, we weren't stunned to discover that this place was well below average in terms of the number of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its residents based on the data we assessed. Frankly, this was what we expected to find. The final metric we assessed in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to return home from the nursing home. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 3.9 percent of its patients returning home.
