Facility Inspections

Grade: A

We want to draw your attention to the fact that this nursing home really outperformed its overall score in the area of inspections. In fact, it received a nearly flawless inspection report this year. As a result, we gave it one of our best scores in that category with an A. Arguably the most important factor we consider in calculating our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Facilities with better grades in this category most likely avoided the more severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. While this nursing home had some minor dings on its report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G through L. This tells you the government inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A few minor deficiencies shouldn't lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

This nursing home's next best area is long-term care. We gave it a grade of C in this area. This is basically a middle of the road grade in this area. Our long-term care grade focuses on a nursing home's personal care instead of the skilled nursing or healthcare services that are critical to a skilled nursing facility. One of the statistics we considered in addition to nursing hours was vaccines. Candidly, we were a bit alarmed this facility administered the pneumonia vaccination to a relatively low 70.149254 percent of its residents. Nevertheless, this place was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The next area we looked at is short-term care, where this facility was awarded a grade of C in this category. Short-term care scores are based on the nursing home's quantity of skilled nursing services. This includes a broad scope of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, not to mention other variations of therapy. Unfortunately, this place was below average in terms of its level of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its patients based on the metrics we assessed. Finally, we considered the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 5.2 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most nursing homes, closer to half of their patients are able to return home so this figure is below average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

The next area we graded is nursing, which is this nursing home's worst category. Unfortunately, we gave it an F in this category, which is clearly concerning. In determining a nursing home's nursing score, we look at the amount of time nurses commit to patients and the levels of training of the nurses. This place provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is an alarmingly low total. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing ratings. This place fared well when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
