Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

The primary reason this turned out to be a decent nursing home is that it earned an excellent inspection score. In fact, its inspection score was far superior to its overall grade. In our inspections category, we gave it an A-. Our inspection ratings are tied to datapoints found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes that excel in this category typically have very few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these facilities generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. Fortunately, although this facility had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are found in categories G through L. This means the inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies should not stop you from considering a nursing home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

This nursing home also received a favorable score in our long-term care category. We awarded this nursing home a better than average grade of B in that category. Nursing homes that do well in long-term care typically are well-staffed and offer extensive hands on care to patients. After looking at the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination records. This facility vaccinated 99.51923 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Vaccines are vital to keeping patients healthy. Finally, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.03 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

Another strength of this facility is its favorable grade in nursing. We gave them one of our better scores in that area, with an D. In calculating a facility's nursing grade, we look at the amount of time nurses are seeing patients as well as 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 looked at some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing ratings. This place performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these datapoints to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The last category we graded was short-term care. Sadly, it received an abysmal F in this area, which is an abysmal grade. This is certainly a significant concern. In the category of short-term care, we strive to evaluate indicators of a facility's rehabilitation services. We look at the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. With a grade of this caliber in this category, we weren't shocked to learn that this facility was below average in several staffing figures we looked at. In fact, it provided far fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than most nursing homes. Finally, we looked at the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that just 3.2 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
