Facility Inspections

Grade: A

While we were not high on this facility's overall grade, it actually 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 grades in that category with an A. Inspection scores are based on several datapoints found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are an important item to look for on these inspections. Most importantly, you should avoid nursing homes with severe deficiencies linked to endangerment of patients. This nursing home received 6 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This means that the government inspectors did not consider any of these deficiencies to pose an immediate threat to patient health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

This nursing home's second best area turned out to be its long-term care grade, where it received a grade of C. Long-term care grades focus on a facility's personal care rather than the highly skilled therapy and medical services that are critical to a rehabilitation facility. Once we finished looking at the quantity of nursing care, we next considered the facility's vaccination record. We were optimistic to discover that this facility vaccinates 99.016396 percent of its patients for pneumonia. This place keeps its patients out of the hospital. While it had 2.29 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, its risk adjusted statistic was better than most nursing homes due to it having some more complicated patients.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

This nursing home's next best category was short-term care. We gave it a C in this category. This is basically a slightly below average grade in this area. With our short-term care rating, we attempt to craft a valuable measure for rehabilitation. In this process, we assess the nursing home's levels of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. In this facility's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than the typical facility. The final datapoint we looked at in this area is the number of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We found that it was above average in this metric with 55.3 percent of its residents returning home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

The next area we analyzed is nursing. We gave it an F for this category, which is a poor score. Nursing scores are based largely on nurse staffing levels. This facility averaged a meager 2.6 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Unfortunately, this nursing home also had abysmal marks in some of the quality-based metrics to go along with its low nursing hours. We looked at the percentage of residents sustaining pressure ulcers and we were very disappointed. This place was at approximately 1.5 times the national average in this metric.
