Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

While we were not very complementary of this facility's overall grade, it received a very impressive inspection report this year. In fact, it received a nearly flawless inspection report this year. As a result, it earned one of our best scores in that category with a grade of A-. Perhaps the most significant factor we consider in computing our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. It is generally best to avoid places that had a long list of deficiencies. Fortunately, although this place had some minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means that the government inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home received its next highest category grade in the category of long-term care. We gave this facility a grade of B- in this category, which is a decent score. Our long-term care ratings are based in part on the facility's amount of nursing care. This includes a vast scope of personal care services, ranging from help with activities of daily living to routine medical services. On top of assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 99.25926 percent of its residents, which is more than the majority of nursing homes. Finally, this facility was also able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

Turning to the area of nursing care, this facility received a grade of just D in this category. Our nursing grade is largely tied to the facility's nurse staffing. This facility provided only 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This is not a very impressive figure. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing ratings. This nursing home performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Turning to our last area, this nursing home really did not fare well in this category either. With an abysmal grade of F in short-term care, this is just about as terrible as it gets. In crafting these short-term care grades, we look at the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our objective is to devise a scale for sizing up the rehabilitation services of various nursing homes. Based on its score in this area, we were not surprised to discover that this place is well below average in terms of the number of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its patients based on the figures we assessed. The last item we considered in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to return home from the facility. This facility struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 4.2 percent of its patients returning home.
