Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

To pair with its decent overall grade, we gave this facility a grade of A+ for our inspections rating. This score is far better than the facility's overall rating. Perhaps the most significant factor we consider in computing our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Facilities with better grades in this category most likely dodged the most severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Based on this, we still had positive view of this facility's recent inspections.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

The second highest grade we gave this nursing home in any area came in the category of nursing, where we gave it a grade of B-. Nursing grades are largely tied to the nursing home's nurse staffing. This nursing home averages just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Finally, although this place got dinged a bit for its nursing hours, it actually excelled in a few of our quality-based measures. With less than five percent of its patients suffering from pressure ulcers, it did very well in this area.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The third highest category we awarded this facility in any area came in the category of short-term care, where we awarded it a grade of C. With our short-term care assessment, we seek to craft a valuable gauge for rehabilitation services. In this process, we look at a facility's levels of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. Unfortunately, this place was below average in terms of its level of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its patients based on the measures we assessed. The important question is whether this adversely impacted quality of care. The last item we considered in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We discovered that just 5.3 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is actually below average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

This facility's worst category was long-term care, which is the last area we scored. In this category, we awarded this nursing home a grade of just D. Long-term care scores in this range generally are a bad sign for the quantity and quality of care provided by nurses and aids. In addition to assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Frankly, we were a bit worried that this nursing home vaccinated only 89.830505 percent of its residents. To our surprise, this nursing home was actually decent at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had just 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This is its best feature in this category.
