Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

While we were not high on this facility overall, we awarded it an A- for our inspections rating. This score is far more impressive than the facility's overall grade. These inspection ratings weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these issues by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this nursing home had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G through L. This means the inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A few minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home's long-term care rating turns out to be one of its best scores. The nursing home received a grade of B- in this category. Long-term care scores are based on a nursing home's quantity of care. This means a broad scope of personal care services, ranging from help with activities of daily living to routine healthcare services. After we finished looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses, we turned to the facility's vaccination statistics. We were optimistic to learn that this nursing home vaccinates 100 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Lastly, this facility was also 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: F

Sadly, this facility received an F for its short-term care score. With our short-term care rating, we endeavor to craft a sound barometer for rehabilitation services. In this process, we look at a nursing home's scope of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. With a grade in this range in this category, we were not surprised to discover that this nursing home was below average in several staffing metrics we focus on. The facility offered significantly fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than most other facilities. Lastly, we assessed the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that just 4.4 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

The next category we looked at is nursing, in which this facility received a poor score in this category also. We gave it an F for this area, which is definitely very concerning. There are several criteria within this grade. Most of these data points are tied to staffing levels. This nursing home averaged just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This is not a very impressive figure. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing grades. This place fared well when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these statistics to be measures of the quality of nursing care.
