Facility Inspections

Grade: A

While this nursing home's overall score was not a highlight, it actually really excelled in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it an A for that category, which is one of our highest scores. Inspection grades are tied to many pieces of information located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are an important item to look for on these inspections. Most importantly, you should avoid nursing homes with severe deficiencies linked to endangerment of patients. 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. Despite this deficiency, this nursing home still received a relatively favorable inspection report.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

This nursing home's next best area is long-term care. In that area, we awarded this nursing home a C. For prospective patients in need of a permanent residence rather than rehabilitation, long-term care is a very important category. One of the factors we considered after nurse's aid hours was vaccines. We were a bit concerned this nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccine to just 75.282715 percent of its residents. Nevertheless, this place keeps its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

We were stunned to find that this facility also excelled in nursing. We awarded it an impressive grade of D for that category, which is one of our highest scores. When determining our nursing ratings, we assess both nursing hours and the training levels of those nurses. This nursing home provided just 0.2 hours of nursing care per resident each day. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home fared well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The last category we assessed was short-term care, ended up being this nursing home's worst area. We awarded this nursing home a D in that area. Short-term care grades are based on the facility's quantity of skilled nursing services. This means a broad scope of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, not to mention other variations of therapy. With a score of this caliber for this area, we were not surprised to learn this nursing home was well below average in the two key staffing figures we focus on. It offered far fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than most nursing homes. Lastly, we assessed the number of patients who were able to return home from this nursing home. 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.
