Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

While we were fairly low on this facility overall, we awarded it an A- for our inspections rating. This score is far more impressive than the nursing home's overall grade. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating our inspection grades. One of those factors is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these end up being quite minor. While this facility had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G through L. This means the government inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Unfortunately, this nursing home only received a grade of D for its long-term care rating, which turns out to be one of its higher category grades. For prospective residents seeking a permanent place to live rather than skilled nursing, long-term care grades are an important measure. One of the statistics we considered after nursing hours is vaccinations. Thankfully, this nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccination to 100 percent of its patients. Surprisingly, this place was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

Unfortunately, this facility only received a grade of D for its nursing grade, which was actually one of its better category grades. Nursing scores are mostly based on the facility's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing ratings. This place fared well when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Switching gears to the fourth category, this nursing home really didn't perform well in this category either. Due to a bottom of the barrel grade of F in short-term care, this is really as bad as it gets. In the category of short-term care, we seek to assess indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We analyze the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. Lastly, we considered the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. This was not a strength for this facility. We found that just 4.5 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most nursing homes, around half of their residents are able to return home so this is well below average.
