Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

We want to draw your attention to the fact that this nursing home really outperformed its overall score in the category of inspections. In fact, it received a nearly flawless inspection report this year. As a result, we gave it one of our best grades in this area with an A+. These inspection grades take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these items by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This nursing home was hit with 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered severe. This tells you that the inspectors didn't consider any of these deficiencies to be an immediate threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

We also want to point out that this nursing home received a great long-term care score. Indeed, it received one of our most impressive grades in that category with a grade of A. Facilities that do well in long-term care tend to provide patients with more supervision and stay on top of routine medical care. On top of looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients. Vaccines are vital to keeping patients out of the hospital. Lastly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.03 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

We awarded this nursing home a grade of just D for our short-term care score. This is not one of our better scores. Our short-term care grade is commonly used to gauge a facility's performance with rehabilitation To offer highly scored rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to offer higher levels of highly skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other highly skilled individuals. We found that this nursing home was subpar in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours offered to its residents based on the metrics we assessed. Lastly, we considered the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that just 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

Moving on to the last category, this facility didn't perform well. With an abysmal grade of F in nursing, this is its poorest area. Nursing ratings are largely associated with a nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing scores. This nursing home performed well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.
