Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

To pair with its relatively modest overall score, we gave this nursing home an A+ for its inspection grade. This score is far more impressive than the facility's overall score. Arguably the most critical factor we consider in calculating our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes with better scores in this category most likely avoided the more severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. It does not look like we were able to find deficiency counts for this nursing home. Without all of the deficiency related data for this facility, it ended up being challenging to really assess it in the area of inspections.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

Another one of this nursing home's more impressive category scores came in the category of long-term care. In that category, we gave this facility a grade of B. It actually outperformed most nursing homes in this category. Nursing homes that do well in this category tend to be well-staffed and offer extensive hands on care to residents. Once we looked at the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then looked at the facility's vaccination data. This facility vaccinated 99.10314 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is far higher than most nursing homes. Finally, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

This facility's next best area ended up being its short-term care score, where it received a C. In the category of short-term care, we seek to qualify indicators of a facility's rehabilitation services. We look at a facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. We were not able to find information about this nursing home's registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 5.5 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most nursing homes, closer to half of their residents are able to return home so this figure is below average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

The next area we scored was nursing. We gave it a lowly F for this category, which is a bottom of the barrel grade. This is obviously a major concern. Nursing scores are tied to quantity of nursing care available. This nursing home provides 0.3 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 computing our nursing grades. This nursing home performed well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care.
