Although we gave this nursing home a poor overall score, we gave it a B+ for our inspections rating. This is the result of the facility receiving a quality government inspection report this year. Inspection grades take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these items by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Amazingly, this was one of the few nursing homes in the country that had no deficiencies whatsoever on its inspection report. This is very impressive. The lack of deficiencies is this place's greatest strength.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home ended up receiving a a very poor grade in our short-term care area. It received a lowly F in this area. With our short-term care grade, we try to forge a valuable barometer for rehabilitation. In this process, we analyze the facility's offerings of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. As you might expect, we found that this place offers far less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than the typical nursing home. Lastly, we considered the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This definitely wasn't a strength for this facility. We found that just 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most nursing homes, around half of their residents are able to return home so this is well below average.
Long-term Care Quality
Tragically, we gave this facility an F for its long-term care score. Nursing homes that receive this kind of score in this category may not provide the kind of consistent around the clock care that some other nursing homes provide. One of the statistics we considered in addition to nursing hours is vaccines. Unfortunately, it doesn't appear that this nursing home submitted information about vaccinations. Surprisingly, this nursing home was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home has less hospitalizations than many nursing homes. This is its best score in this category.
The last category we looked at was nursing. This facility was given a very poor grade of F in this area. When computing our nursing scores, we factor in both the number of hours nurses spend with residents and the levels of licensure of those nurses. This place provided only 2.4 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This is not a very impressive figure. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing scores. This nursing home fared well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
