Facility Inspections

Grade: A

This facility received a solid overall grade as described above, but we really wanted to point out its nearly flawless health inspection reports in recent years. We gave them an A in this category. Our inspection ratings are tied to datapoints located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places that excel in this area typically have very few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these nursing homes generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. While this facility had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means the inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

This nursing home also excelled in the area of long-term care, where we awarded it a grade of A. Not many nursing homes fared better in this area. When facilities receive a score in this range in long-term care it generally means it has plenty of staff and is an overall good place to reside on a permanent basis. One of the factors we considered on top of nursing hours was vaccinations. This facility provided the pneumonia vaccine to 99.72145 percent of its patients. This is a proven method to avoid unnecessary deaths and hospitalizations for the elderly population. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.03 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The next area we looked at was short-term care. In this category, where we gave this nursing home an F, which was worse than most of its other category grades. In the category of short-term care, we try to evaluate measures of a facility's rehabilitation services. We analyze the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. Unfortunately, we discovered that this nursing home provides fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most facilities. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. This definitely wasn't a strength for this nursing home. We found that just 0 percent of this facility's patients 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 next category we analyzed was nursing. It received an abysmal F in this area, which is a poor score. This is certainly a significant disappointment. When determining a nursing home's nursing grade, we consider the amount of time nurses are caring for patients and the skill levels of those nurses. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing ratings. This nursing home fared well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.
