Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

While this nursing home's overall grade was not a highlight, it actually really excelled in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A- for that area, which is one of our best scores. Arguably the most critical factor we look at in computing our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's inspection reports. It is typically best to avoid facilities that have a long list of deficiencies. While this facility had a few minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are found in categories G through L. This means that the inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

Another one of this nursing home's better category scores was in the area of long-term care. In that category, we awarded this facility a grade of B. It actually outpaced most nursing homes in this category. For prospective residents looking for a permanent residence as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care grades are very important. In addition to considering the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home provided the vaccine to 86.76923 percent of its residents, which is somewhat below what we were hoping for. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.03 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

We gave this facility a grade of just D for our nursing rating. Nursing scores are tied to quantity of nursing care available. This place offered only 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This is well below average. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing grades. This nursing home fared well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The next category we rated is short-term care. We gave it an abysmal F in this category, which is a poor score. Short-term care grades are based in part on a facility's quantity of highly-skilled highly skilled professionals. This means a broad scope of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, not to mention other forms of therapy. Not surprisingly, we found that this place offers far less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than the average nursing home. The final item we assessed in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the facility 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 poor statistics doomed this facility's short-term care score.
