Facility Inspections

Grade: A

While this nursing home's overall grade was decent, it really fared well in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A for that category, which is one of our highest scores. Arguably the most significant factor we look at in computing our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Nursing homes with better scores in this area typically avoided the most severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. This facility was hit with 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This indicates that the government inspectors didn't deem any of these deficiencies to be an immediate threat to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is always a good sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

Additionally, we awarded this facility a grade of B in our long-term care category. This is one of our more favorable grades. Nursing homes that excel in long-term care typically provide residents with closer supervision and stay on top of routine healthcare services. On top of looking at the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 98.77451 percent of its patients, which is better than the average nursing home. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

Next we wanted to quickly point out one of this facility's major weaknesses. In the area of nursing care, we gave this nursing home a lowly grade of F. In computing our nursing ratings, we factor in both the number of hours nurses spend with residents and the skill levels of those nurses. This nursing home provided a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This figure is well below the national average. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing ratings. This nursing home performed well when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these datapoints to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The last category we analyzed is short-term care, which is this nursing home's least impressive category. It received an abysmal F in this category, which is certainly a major disappointment. Short-term care grades are meaningful for residents needing rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically utilizes higher levels of highly-skilled nursing services. This includes a broad range of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. The last item we assessed in this area is the percentage of patients who ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home. This facility struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 2.5 percent of its residents returning home.
