Facility Inspections

Grade: B

Although we were not high on this nursing home's overall performance, it actually received 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 area with a grade of B. Our inspection ratings weigh a host of factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we rely on is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. You generally want to avoid facilities with a list of deficiencies flagged. This place received 6 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered to be major deficiencies. This tells you that the inspectors did not deem any of these deficiencies to be an immediate threat to resident safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

One of the other reasons we graded this facility so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing rating. In that category, we awarded this facility an B. Our nursing rating looks at the facility's level of nurse staffing. We look at both the levels of licensure of the nurses and the amount of time spent with patients. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality-based metrics and this place excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any facility the nation in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can frequently be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as having a policy of moving a patient at least once a day.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Our third area we assessed was short-term care, where this nursing home was given an F. In calculating our short-term care grades, we look at the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our objective is to create a scale for sizing up the rehabilitation services of various nursing homes. With a score in this range for this category, we were not surprised to learn that this facility was well below average in many staffing metrics we assess. The facility supplied far fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most nursing homes. The last measure we assessed in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to return home from the facility. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 4.8 percent of its residents returning home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The next area we graded is long-term care, in which this nursing home was given an abysmal score here also. Unfortunately, we gave it an abysmal F in this category, which is definitely a major concern. Nursing homes that don't fare well in this category typically are not as well-staffed and are lagging in a few of the areas of routine personal care we assessed. On top of looking at the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 93.589745 percent of its residents. This is a bit lower than we were hoping for but still a reasonably acceptable figure. To our surprise, this place was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home has fewer hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. This was its best score in this category.
