Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

While we were not complementary of this place's overall performance, it actually received an impressive inspection report this year with few dings from the applicable government inspectors. As a result, it received one of our better grades in that category with a grade of B+. Arguably the most critical factor we consider in computing our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. It is typically best to avoid places that have a long list of deficiencies. This nursing home was assessed 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be severe. This tells you that the inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The next highest area we gave this nursing home in any area came in the category of long-term care, where we awarded it a grade of C. For long-term care residents, the facility's primary goal is to keep patients healthy and safe. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate residents. One of the statistics we considered on top of nursing hours is vaccinations. Candidly, we were a bit alarmed this nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccine to only 84.86842 percent of its residents. Fortunately, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Unfortunately, this nursing home only received a grade of D for its short-term care rating, which is not a score to write home about. Short-term care scores are based in part on the facility's quantity of skilled highly skilled professionals. This means a broad scope of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, in addition to other variations of therapy. With its grade in this area, we weren't stunned to learn that this facility was well below average in terms of the quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its residents based on the metrics we assessed. Finally, we looked at the number of residents who ultimately were able to return home from this facility. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 4.9 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

The last area we looked at was nursing, which was a low point for this facility. We awarded this facility a grade of D for the area of nursing. Nursing ratings are based largely on nurse staffing levels. This place averaged a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This is an alarmingly low total. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing grades. This place performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these data points to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
