Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

While we graded this facility incredibly poorly overall, it actually earned a very impressive government inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our highest scores in that area with an A-. Inspection grades are based on several datapoints located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are an important thing to look for on these reports. Most importantly, you should avoid facilities that have severe deficiencies linked to risks to resident well being. This particular nursing home received 6 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a solid inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Turning to the category of short-term care, this nursing home was awarded just a D in that category. Sadly, this wound up being one of its best areas. Short-term care scores are critical for prospective residents requiring rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically requires more skilled nursing. This means a wide scope of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. With a score this poor in this category, we were not shocked to discover that this facility was below average in many staffing metrics we looked at. The nursing home provided significantly fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident 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 5.4 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

This nursing home wound up receiving a rock-bottom grade in our long-term care area. It received an F in this category. For prospective residents seeking a permanent place to live as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care is a very important category. Once we finished looking at the volume of nursing care, we next considered the facility's vaccination data. We were pleased to learn that this facility vaccinates 100 percent of its residents for pneumonia. To our surprise, this nursing home also fared well at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Sadly, some of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

Moving on to the final category, this nursing home did not perform well in this area either. Due to an abysmal grade of F in nursing, this is just about as bad as it gets. When computing our nursing grades, we look at both nursing hours and the skill levels of the 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. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing ratings. This facility fared well when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
