Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

While we were not high on this nursing home's overall grade, it received a very impressive inspection report this year. In fact, it received an excellent inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our highest grades in that category with an A-. These inspection scores 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. 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. Even with this deficiency, this was still a relatively favorable inspection report.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

This facility was given its next highest category grade in the category of long-term care. We gave this facility a grade of C in this category, which is a respectable grade. Long-term care grades are essential for people needing non-healthcare services such as personal care. After considering the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination records. We were a bit worried that this facility vaccinated 75.1773 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which happens to be significantly below average. On a more positive note, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Unfortunately, this nursing home only received a D for its short-term care rating, which is not an impressive grade. Short-term care grades are often employed to score a nursing home's rehabilitation services In order to offer good rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to have better levels of highly skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other highly trained professionals. With its grade in this area, we were not stunned to find that this facility is well below average in terms of the number of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its patients based on the figures we looked at. Honestly, this was what we expected here. The last item we looked at in this category is the number of residents that who were able to eventually return home from the nursing home. This facility struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 0 percent of its residents returning home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

The final category we analyzed was nursing. Unfortunately, we gave it an abysmal F for this category, which is a rock bottom score. In determining a nursing home's nursing rating, we look at the number of hours nurses spend with patients as well as the level of licensure of those nurses. With only 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day, this place's nurse staffing levels were far below the national average. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing ratings. This place fared well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these statistics to be reliable measures of the quality of nursing care.
