Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

While we were fairly low on this facility overall, we awarded it an A- for our inspections rating. This score is far more impressive than the nursing home's overall score. Inspection scores take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these issues by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Even with this deficiency, this was still a relatively positive report.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facility's long-term care rating appears to be one of its more favorable grades. The facility was given a B- in this area. In determining these long-term care scores, we look at the nursing home's ability to maintain its permanent residents' health and quality of life. After assessing the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination record. We were pleased to find that this nursing home vaccinated 95.07937 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Lastly, this nursing home was also 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.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Unfortunately, we gave this facility an F for its short-term care grade. Short-term care grades are vital for prospective residents requiring rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually mandates higher levels of skilled nursing. This means a broad range of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other types of therapy. With a score this poor in this area, we weren't stunned to discover this facility was below average in many staffing areas we looked at. The nursing home offered substantially fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than most facilities. The final datapoint we considered in this area is the percentage of patients that eventually returned home from the nursing home. This facility struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 0 percent of its patients returning home. Unfortunately, this was quite a bit below average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

Moving on to our fourth category, this nursing home really didn't perform very well in this area either. Due to a very poor grade of F in nursing, this is about as terrible as it gets. Our nursing grade analyzes several factors, however, the paramount one is the quantity of nurse hours spent with patients. This facility offered a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is an alarmingly low total. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing ratings. This facility fared well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
