Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

Although we did not rate this nursing home highly overall, we want to draw your attention to its nearly flawless inspections in recent years. We awarded them an impressive grade of A+ in this category. Our inspection grades weigh several factors included in a facility's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we weigh heavily is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. You should avoid nursing homes with a list 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. In spite of this deficiency, this nursing home still received a relatively positive report.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Unfortunately, this nursing home only earned a D for its long-term care grade, which is actually one of its higher category grades. For patients in need of a permanent residence as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care grades are an important measure. In addition to assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 94.12674 percent of its residents. To our surprise, this place was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had just 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The next area we graded was short-term care, in which this facility received an F. With our short-term care score, we try to create a sound measure for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we analyze a nursing home's level of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. With a score of this caliber for this area, we were not shocked to learn this place was below average in the two key staffing metrics we looked at. It offered significantly fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than most other nursing homes. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This definitely wasn't a strength for this nursing home. We found that just 4.2 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home. At most facilities, about half of their patients are able to return home so this is well below average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

The final area we assessed was nursing. This nursing home received a rock bottom grade of F in this category. In calculating a facility's nursing grade, we consider the number of hours nurses spend with residents as well as the levels of training of the nurses. This facility provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing ratings. This place fared well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these data points to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
