Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

We want to draw your attention to the fact that this nursing home really outperformed its overall grade in the area of inspections. In fact, it received a nearly flawless government inspection report this year. As a result, we gave it one of our best grades in that category with an A+. Perhaps the most critical factor we look at in determining our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Places with higher grades in this area typically dodged the more severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. Fortunately, although this nursing home had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G through L. This tells you the inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies should not lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home's next highest area was its long-term care grade, where it received a B-. For long-term care residents, 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 residents. Once we assessed the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination data. This facility vaccinated 91.066284 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is slightly lower than we were hoping for but still a respectable percentage. Nevertheless, this nursing home keeps its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

Another strength of this nursing home is its favorable grade in nursing. We gave them one of our better scores in that area, with an impressive grade of D. The nursing score is based on many subcategories, but the main consideration is the quantity of nurse hours spent with patients. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This is an alarmingly low total. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing scores. This place fared well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The final category we assessed is short-term care, proved to be this facility's worst area. We awarded this nursing home a D in this area. Our short-term care ratings are based in part on a nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled highly skilled professionals. This means a broad range of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, not to mention other variations of therapy. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. Lastly, we considered the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that just 4.5 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
