Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

The main reason this ended up being a decent nursing home is that it received an elite inspection score. In fact, its inspection score was far superior to its overall score. In our inspections category, we gave it a grade of A+. Our inspection scores account for a host of factors included in a facility's inspection reports. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the number and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with better scores in this area typically have few severe deficiencies. While this facility had a few minor dings on its report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are found in categories G through L. This means that the government inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A couple of minor deficiencies shouldn't stop you from considering a nursing home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facility's next highest area came in the area of long-term care. In that category, we gave this nursing home a grade of B-. Our long-term care grades are more critical for individuals requiring more conventional services related to activities of daily living. In addition to considering the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Candidly, we were a bit concerned this nursing home provided the vaccine to just 71.6763 percent of its patients. Fortunately, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Turning to the category of short-term care, this nursing home was awarded a grade of just D in that category. Our short-term care grades are vital for individuals requiring rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally utilizes more skilled nursing. This means a vast range of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. With its grade in this area, we were not surprised to find that this nursing home is well below average in terms of the number of physical therapy and registered nurse hours offered to its patients based on the measures we looked at. The final measure we looked at in this category is the percentage of residents that ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home. This facility struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 0 percent of its residents returning home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

Moving on to the fourth area, we awarded this facility a grade of D for our nursing category. This is the facility's weakest category score. Our nursing score looks at the facility's nurse staffing levels. We weigh both the levels of licensure of those nurses and the number of hours spent with patients. With a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident each day, this facility's nurse staffing levels were far below the national average. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing ratings. This nursing home performed well when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
