Facility Inspections

Grade: A

In addition to being a respectable facility overall, this facility also excelled in the area of inspections, where it earned an A. Few nursing homes performed better in this area. Our inspection scores weigh several factors found on a nursing home's inspection reports. One key criteria we rely on is the number and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with better scores in this category tend to have very few of these severe deficiencies. This facility was hit with 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This indicates that the inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies to be an immediate threat to resident health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is always a good sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This nursing home also was given a favorable score in our long-term care category. We awarded this nursing home a better than average grade of B+ in this area. In a long-term care environment, the facility's primary objective is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. In addition to considering the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 89.45869 percent of its patients, which is a bit below what we were hoping for. Although its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we like to see, we were pleased to find place was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

This nursing home earned a very good nursing grade this year as well. It received one of our better grades in that area with a F. The nursing rating is based on a handful of datapoints, most of which are associated with levels of nurse staffing. With a meager 0.2 hours of nursing care per resident each day, this place's nurse staffing levels were quite a bit below the national average. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing scores. This nursing home performed well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these datapoints to be good measures of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The next area we assessed was short-term care. We gave it an F in this category, which is a bottom of the barrel grade. This is certainly a major disappointment. Short-term care ratings are based on the nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled nursing services. This means a wide spectrum of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, not to mention other forms of therapy. Based on its grade in this area, we were not stunned to find that this facility was well below average in terms of the quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours offered to its patients based on the data we looked at. The final metric we looked at in this area is the number of residents that returned home from the facility. This facility struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 2.9 percent of its residents returning home.
