Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

Although we graded this nursing home incredibly poorly overall, it received a fairly impressive inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our more favorable grades in that category with a B+. Perhaps the most significant factor we look at in calculating our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. It is typically best to avoid nursing homes that had a long list of severe deficiencies. 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. Despite this deficiency, this place still had a relatively positive report.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

Incredibly, we awarded this nursing home a C for our long-term care rating, which really isn't a bad grade. If you are looking for anything other than rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each nursing home's long-term care ratings. On top of considering the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Thankfully, this nursing home gave the vaccine to 99.60213 percent of its patients, which is an above average figure. Lastly, this nursing home was also able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The third area we graded was short-term care. This nursing home's was given a low-end short-term care score where it was given an F. In our short-term care assessment, we attempt to create a valuable barometer for rehabilitation. In this process, we look at the facility's levels of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. Considering its grade in this category, we were not surprised to find that this nursing home was well below average in terms of the number of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its patients based on the figures we assessed. Frankly, this was about what we expected here. The last statistic we assessed in this area is the number of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these poor metrics sunk this nursing home's short-term care score.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

The next area we assessed was nursing. This nursing home was given an abysmal grade of F in that area. We assessed the levels of nurses working for the facility, as well as the quantity of time those nurses worked with patients, in computing our rating in this category. This nursing home provided only 0.1 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing ratings. This nursing home performed well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
