Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

Although we gave this facility a terrible overall grade, we awarded it a B- for our inspections rating. In fact, the facility received very impressive inspection report this year. These inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these issues by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this place had some minor dings on its report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G through L. This tells you the inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

Surprisingly, we awarded this facility a B- for our long-term care rating, which really isn't too bad of a score. Our long-term care scores are essential for individuals needing non-healthcare services such as personal care. Once we concluded our assessment of the amount of care provided by nurses, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination statistics. We were a bit concerned this nursing home vaccinated just 68.181816 percent of its residents for pneumonia. On a more positive note, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The third area we looked at is short-term care, in which this facility received an F. In computing our short-term care ratings, we look at the facility's levels of highly skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other highly trained professionals. This score is generally a solid measure of a facility's rehabilitation services. Not surprisingly, we discovered that this nursing home provides significantly less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than the average nursing home. Lastly, we considered the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. This was not a strength for this facility. We found that just 4.2 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home. At most nursing homes, around half of their patients are able to return home so this is well below average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

The final area we rated was nursing. This facility received a poor grade of F in this category. Our nursing rating weighs quite a few components, but the main one is the number of nurse hours per patient per week. This place averaged a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident each day. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing grades. This place fared well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these statistics to be reliable measures of the quality of nursing care.
