Facility Inspections

Grade: A

The primary reason this nursing home received a decent overall score is its excellent health inspections in recent years. We gave it one of our better grades in that area, with a grade of A. This is a much better score than the place's overall score, which was decent but not in the elite range. Arguably the most important factor we consider in determining our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Places with higher scores in this category most likely dodged the more severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. While this place had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is always a good sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

We also gave this facility a positive score in long-term care. This nursing home earned a B in this area, which turns out to be one of our higher grades. Nursing homes that do well in long-term care tend to be well-staffed and provide extensive hands on care to patients. On top of looking at the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 94.04517 percent of its patients, which is better than the average nursing home. Lastly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

As it turns out, this facility only received a D for its short-term care rating, which is not an impressive grade. Our short-term care grade is generally employed to measure a facility's rehabilitation services To offer quality rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to offer better levels of skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other licensed professionals. With its grade in this category, we weren't surprised to learn that this facility is well below average in terms of its quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours offered to its residents based on the metrics we looked at. Honestly, this was what we expected to find. Finally, we assessed the percentage of residents that eventually returned home from this facility. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 5.8 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

Turning to our next category, this facility didn't perform very well. Due to a bottom of the barrel grade of F in nursing, this is its poorest category. Our nursing rating is based on the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. We factor in both the levels of skill of those nurses as well as the amount of time spent with patients. This particular facility offered just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This statistic is well below the national average. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing ratings. This facility performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these statistics to be reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care.
