Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

While this nursing home's overall grade was not a highlight, it actually excelled in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it an A- for that area, which is one of our best scores. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining these inspection ratings. One of those factors is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these are relatively minor. This place was assessed 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This means that the inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies to create an imminent risk to resident health or safety. A few minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Unfortunately, this nursing home's second most respectable category is long-term care. As it turns out, with a grade of D in this area, it still fared relatively poorly. Facilities that receive this type of grade in this category may not provide the type of consistent 24/7 care that some other facilities provide. Once we finished looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 93.69748 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Surprisingly, this nursing home was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home has less hospitalizations than the average nursing home. This was its best feature in this category.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

We were surprised to find that this nursing home also excelled in the category of nursing. We awarded it an impressive grade of D for that category, which is one of our best grades. When determining our nursing scores, we factor in both the number of hours nurses spend with residents and the levels of licensure of those nurses. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing ratings. This place fared well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these areas to be good measures of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The next area we analyzed was short-term care. This facility was given an abysmal grade of F in this category. Short-term care grades are often used to grade a nursing home's rehabilitation services. To have highly rated rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to feature higher levels of skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other highly skilled individuals. With its abysmal score in this area, we were not shocked to discover this nursing home provides far fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other nursing homes. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of patients 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.
