Facility Inspections

Grade: A

This facility received a solid overall grade as described above, but we really wanted to emphasize its nearly flawless health inspection reports in recent years. We awarded them an A in this category. These inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these items by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Unfortunately, we weren't able to locate deficiency data for this facility. We wish we had more information about this facility. Without having access to complete deficiency related data, it was challenging to assess this facility in the area of inspections.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

This nursing home also was given a positive score in our long-term care category. We awarded this nursing home an above average grade of B in that category. In a long-term care setting, the facility'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. On top of considering the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 49.50739 percent of its patients. This is slightly lower than we expected. While its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we hoped for, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Sadly, this nursing home's next best score is short-term care. As it turns out, with a grade of D in this category, it still performed relatively badly. In determining our short-term care grades, we analyze the facility's levels of skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other highly trained professionals. This grade is typically a reliable assessment of a facility's ability to rehabilitate patients. With a grade in this range for this category, we weren't shocked to discover that this nursing home was below average in two of the key staffing figures we assess. It offered far fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most nursing homes. Finally, we looked at the number of patients who who were able to eventually return home from this nursing home. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was well off the national average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

The next category we looked at is nursing, which turned out to be this facility's least impressive category. We awarded this facility a D in that category. There are a variety of criteria included in this grade. Most of these factors reflect nurse staffing. This place provided a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing grades. This facility performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these statistics to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
