Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

Although we were not high on this facility overall, we awarded it a B+ for our inspections rating. This score is far better than the nursing home's overall score. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating our inspection grades. One critical factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some can be quite minor. This facility was assessed 6 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This indicates that the inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies to cause an imminent risk to patient safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The second highest area we gave this nursing home in any area came in the category of long-term care, where we gave it a grade of B-. Our long-term care scores are more important for those in need of more conventional services associated with activities of daily living. After we finished looking at the quantity of nursing care, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination statistics. We were optimistic to find that this facility vaccinates 100 percent of its residents for pneumonia. This facility also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

This nursing home actually received a decent grade in the area of nursing as well. We awarded it a grade of C for that category, which is not a bad score. The nursing rating is based on numerous datapoints. The most heavily weighted variable is the quantity of hours nurses spent with patients. This particular facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This figure is far below average. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this nursing home actually excelled in some of the quality-based metrics we looked at. It scored well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The last category we rated was short-term care. Unfortunately, we gave it an abysmal F in this category, which is a rock bottom score. In crafting our short-term care grades, we quantify the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. Our objective is to create a barometer for comparing the rehabilitation services of different nursing homes. 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 assessed the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that just 4 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
