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: C

This facility's long-term care rating appears to be one of its more favorable grades. The facility was given a C 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. This nursing home vaccinated 93.333336 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is a few points below what we expected but still a respectable figure. On a more positive note, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Unfortunately, this facility's third best score is short-term care. Nevertheless, with a D in this area, it still fared somewhat badly. Our short-term care grades are believed to be more important for people in need of rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation usually utilizes more skilled nursing. This means not just nursing, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other types of therapy. As you might expect, we learned that this nursing home offers far less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than a typical facility. Lastly, we considered the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that just 5.2 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

The next area we rated is nursing. This nursing home received an abysmal grade of F in this area. Nursing grades are based largely on quantity of nursing care available. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing scores. This nursing home performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
