Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

To pair with its relatively modest overall score, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A+ for our inspections rating. This is far better than the facility's overall grade. Arguably the most important factor we look at in computing our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. Facilities with better grades in this category most likely avoided the most severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. 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. Even some of the best nursing homes receive an occasional ding on their inspection report.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

This facility also was awarded a strong grade in our long-term care category. We awarded this facility an above average grade of B in that area. Facilities that excel in long-term care typically are well-staffed and provide extensive hands on care to residents. In addition to looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 97.609566 percent of its patients, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia sadly is often a life threatening ailment for nursing home residents so we prefer when a nursing home does not roll the dice on this issue. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

We gave this nursing home just a D for our short-term care grade. This is not a very good score. In computing our short-term care grades, we size up the nursing home's levels of highly skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other licensed professionals. This category is often a reliable assessment of a facility's rehabilitation. Unfortunately, this nursing home was subpar in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours offered to its residents based on the measures we looked at. Finally, we assessed the percentage of patients that returned home from this nursing home. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was quite a bit off the national average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

The final category we rated was nursing, which is this facility's worst area. We awarded this facility a D in this area. Naturally, this grade pulled down the facility's overall grade a bit. When determining our nursing grades, we factor in both the number of hours nurses spend with residents and the skill levels of the nurses. This facility offered only 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This is an alarmingly low total. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing grades. This facility performed well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these statistics to be reliable measures of the quality of nursing care.
