Facility Inspections

Grade: B

While we were not high on this facility overall, we awarded it a B for our inspections rating. This grade is far more impressive than the facility's overall grade. Inspection scores weigh several factors included in a nursing home's inspection reports. One key criteria we rely on is the number and severity of deficiencies. You should avoid facilities with a list of severe deficiencies flagged. 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 the inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A few minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facilities next most favorable area was short-term care. We awarded it a B- in this category. This is basically a middle of the road score in this area. In the area of short-term care, we endeavor to assess indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We analyze the facility's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. We found that this nursing home was below average in the two key staffing areas we assessed. In fact, it supplied fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other nursing homes. Lastly, we considered the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most facilities, closer to half of their patients are able to return home so this figure is below average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

Unfortunately, this facility only received a grade of D for its nursing grade, which was actually one of its better category grades. There are a variety of datapoints included in this category. Many of the criteria are tied to staffing levels. This place averaged a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This is well below average. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing ratings. This nursing home performed well in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The last area we rated was long-term care. Sadly, it received an abysmal F in this area, which is a very poor grade. In a long-term care setting, the nursing home's primary objective is to maintain patients' quality of life and keep them safe. After assessing the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then looked at the facility's vaccination records. We were optimistic to learn that this nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its residents for pneumonia. Surprisingly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.03 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility has less hospitalizations than many nursing homes. Sadly, a few of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.
