Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

While we were not very complementary of this nursing home's overall score, it actually received a very impressive inspection report this year. In fact, it received an excellent inspection report this year. As a result, it earned one of our best scores in that category with an A-. Inspection ratings take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Fortunately, although this nursing home had a few minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means the government inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A few minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

In addition, we also would like to note that this facility received strong long-term care marks this year. We gave them one of our more favorable scores in that category, with a B. This proved to be the nursing home's second strongest score. In a long-term care environment, the nursing home's primary goal is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. On top of considering the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 90.14963 percent of its patients. This is a bit lower than we expected. While its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we had hoped, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

This facility ended up receiving rock bottom score in our nursing category. It received an F in this category. Our nursing grade includes several subcategories, most of which are associated with quantities of nurse staffing. With just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident each day, this nursing home's nurse staffing levels were significantly below the national average. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home fared well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these metrics to be reliable measures of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The last area we assessed was short-term care. This nursing home received a bottom of the barrel grade of F in that category. In calculating these short-term care ratings, we look at the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. Our goal is to devise a tool for comparing the rehabilitation services of various facilities. Not surprisingly, we learned that this facility provides substantially less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the typical nursing home. Finally, we assessed the number of patients that eventually returned home from this facility. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 2.8 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was quite a bit off the national average.
