Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

While we were not very complementary of this facility's overall score, it received a very impressive inspection report this year. In fact, it received an excellent inspection report this year. As a result, it earned one of our best grades in that category with an A+. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining these inspection grades. One key factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some can be relatively minor. 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 was still a relatively favorable inspection report.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home's second most favorable area ended up being long-term care. In that area, we awarded this nursing home a B-. Our long-term care grade assesses a nursing home's assistance with daily living rather than the skilled therapy and healthcare services that are critical to a skilled nursing facility. After looking at the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 93.98977 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is better than the majority of nursing homes. Finally, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. While it had 1.9 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, its risk adjusted metric was better than most nursing homes since it had more complicated patients.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

This facility ended up receiving rock bottom score in our nursing category. It received an F in this category. Nursing scores are tied to nurse staffing levels. With a meager 3.2 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis, this place's nurse staffing levels were far below the national average. In addition to receiving below average marks for nursing hours, this nursing home was a bit less impressive in some of the quality-based measures we looked at in determining our nursing scores. We looked at the percent of patients suffering pressure ulcers and found that this nursing home was at roughly 150 percent of the national average in this statistic.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The final category we graded was short-term care. Sadly, it received a lowly F in this category, which is a rock bottom grade. Our short-term care scores are based on a nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled highly skilled professionals. This includes a vast scope of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, in addition to other types of therapy. Given its grade in this category, we were not surprised to find that this place was subpar in terms of its quantity of registered nurse hours offered to its patients. Frankly, this was about what we expected here. The last metric we looked at in this category is the number of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 34.1 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is well below average. This statistic was damning for this facility's short-term care grade.
