Facility Inspections

Grade: A

In addition to being a respectable nursing home overall, this facility also excelled in the category of inspections, where it received a grade of A. Few nursing homes performed better in this category. Inspection scores are tied to many pieces of information found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places that score well in this area have very few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these places should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. This place was hit with 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered severe. This indicates that the government inspectors didn't consider any of these deficiencies to pose an immediate risk to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is always a good sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

This facility also excelled in the area of long-term care, where it received a score of A-. Few nursing homes performed more favorably in this area. When nursing homes receive a grade in this range in long-term care it generally means it has plenty of staff and is an overall good place to reside on a permanent basis. On top of considering the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 99.50249 percent of its residents, which is more than most nursing homes. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0.03 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Another issue is the F this nursing home was given in the category of short-term care. Our short-term care scores are based in part on the nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled highly skilled professionals. This means a wide range of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, not to mention other variations of therapy. As you might expect, we found that this place offers substantially less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than a 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 discovered that just 4.4 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these subpar statistics was damning for this facility's short-term care grade.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

Switching gears to the fourth category, this facility did not perform very well. With a poor grade of F in nursing, this is its worst grade. Our nursing rating considers a host of data points. The most heavily weighted one is the quantity of hours nurses spend with patients. This nursing home provides 0.2 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing ratings. This facility fared well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these metrics to be measures of the quality of nursing care.
