Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

While we were not high on this facility's overall performance, it did receive an impressive inspection report this year with few dings from the applicable government inspectors. As a result, it received one of our better grades in that category with a grade of B+. Arguably the most important factor we look at in computing our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. It is typically best to avoid nursing homes that had too many severe deficiencies. Fortunately, although this facility had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means the government inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A few minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home was given its next most favorable category score in the area of short-term care. We gave this nursing home a grade of B- in this area, which is a decent grade. Our short-term care scores are based on the facility's quantity of skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This includes a vast scope of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, in addition to other forms of therapy. Unfortunately, this facility was below average in terms of its level of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its residents based on the metrics we assessed. The important question is whether this also affected quality of care. The last measure we looked at in this category is the number of residents who returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 6 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home. Unfortunately, this was below the national average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

As it turns out, this facility only earned a grade of D for its long-term care grade, which is well below average in this category. In a long-term care environment, the facility's primary objective is to maintain patients' quality of life and keep them safe. On top of looking at the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients, which is more than the average nursing home. Surprisingly, this place was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Sadly, some of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

Turning to the next category, this nursing home really did not perform well here either. With an abysmal grade of F in nursing, this is just about as as uninspiring as it gets. Nursing grades are based in large part on levels of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.2 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing scores. This place fared well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these data points to be good measures of the quality of nursing care.
