Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

Although we didn't rate this nursing home favorably overall, we did give it an excellent score in the category of inspections, where it earned an A+. Inspection grades weigh several factors included in a facility's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we weigh heavily is the number and severity of deficiencies. You should avoid nursing homes with a bunch of deficiencies flagged. 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 nursing home still received a relatively favorable inspection report.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

This facilities second most favorable category was long-term care. We gave it a C in this area. This is basically a middle of the pack score in this area. In determining our long-term care scores, we scrutinize the assistance with daily living offered to the nursing home's residents. One of the statistics we considered in addition to nurse's aid hours is vaccinations. Candidly, we were a bit alarmed this nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccine to just 80.40541 percent of its patients. Nevertheless, this nursing home 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 a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The next area we graded was short-term care, where this nursing home was given an F. Short-term care scores are meaningful for people in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally utilizes more highly-skilled nursing. This includes a vast spectrum of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other types of therapy. With a score of this caliber for this category, we weren't stunned to find that this facility was well below average in the two key staffing areas we looked at. It provided substantially fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than most facilities. The final measure we considered in this area is the number of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 3.6 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these poor metrics was damning for this facility's short-term care grade.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

The next area we assessed is nursing, where this facility received an abysmal score in this category also. Sadly, it received an F for this area, which is obviously a major concern. There are a host of subcategories within this category. Most of these data points reflect levels of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing ratings. This place fared well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
