Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

While this nursing home's overall score was not a highlight, it actually really excelled in the category of inspections. In fact, we awarded it an A- for that category, which is one of our highest scores. Perhaps the most critical factor we consider in computing our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. It is generally in your best interest to avoid places that have a long list of deficiencies. This place was hit with 9 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This means that the inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies to be an imminent threat to resident health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

One of the other reasons we rated this facility so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing score. In that category, we gave this facility an D. In computing our nursing scores, we analyze both nursing hours and the levels of licensure of the nurses. This facility provided a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This is well below average. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing ratings. This facility performed well in terms of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these datapoints to be good measures of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Unfortunately, this facility's third best category was short-term care. Nevertheless, with a D in this area, it still performed somewhat badly. In determining these short-term care grades, we quantify the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. Our purpose is to formulate a tool for comparing the rehabilitation services of different nursing homes. Considering its poor grade in this category, we weren't stunned to discover that this nursing home offers substantially fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than most nursing homes. Finally, we considered the percentage of patients that eventually returned home from this nursing home. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 5 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

This facility's weakest area is long-term care, which is the final category we analyzed. In this area, we gave this nursing home a grade of just D. Nursing homes that do not fare well in this category typically aren't as well-staffed and are lagging in a few of the areas of routine healthcare services we looked at. After we finished looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination data. We were a bit alarmed this nursing home vaccinated a relatively low 56.010925 percent of its residents for pneumonia. To our surprise, this nursing home was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility had less hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. This is its best score in this category.
