Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

To pair with its relatively modest overall score, we gave this facility an A+ for its inspection grade. This score is far more impressive than the facility's overall grade. These inspection scores take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This place received 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be major deficiencies. This indicates that the inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies an immediate threat to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is always a good sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

Additionally, we awarded this nursing home a B in our long-term care category. This happens to be one of our more impressive grades. In a long-term care setting, the nursing home's primary objective is to keep patients healthy and safe. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate residents. In addition to considering the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 82.64706 percent of its residents, which is a bit lower than we expected. While its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we like to see, we were pleased to find nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Moving on to the area of short-term care, this nursing home was given a grade of just D in that category. In the area of short-term care, we try to evaluate indicators of a facility's rehabilitation. We assess the facility's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and various therapists. With its abysmal score in this category, we weren't shocked to find that this nursing home provided substantially fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than most facilities. The final measure we looked at in this category is the percentage of patients that eventually returned home from the facility. This facility struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 0 percent of its residents returning home. This was quite a bit below average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

The next area we scored is nursing, which is this nursing home's least impressive category. Sadly, it received an abysmal F for this category, which is obviously very concerning. There are quite a few subcategories included in this area. Most of these subcategories reflect the quantity and quality of nurse staffing. This particular nursing home provided a meager 0.2 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This figure is significantly below the national average. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing grades. This nursing home fared well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these data points to be reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care.
