Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

Although we did not rate this nursing home highly overall, we want to draw your attention to its nearly flawless inspections in recent years. We awarded them an A+ in this category. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining our inspection grades. One key factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these are relatively insignificant. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Despite this deficiency, this was still a relatively positive inspection report.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

This nursing home's long-term care score turns out to be one of its best scores. The facility received a grade of C in this category. Our long-term care ratings are more important for residents needing more traditional services related to activities of daily living. Once we finished looking at the amount of nursing care, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination statistics. We were pleased to learn that this facility vaccinated 100 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Lastly, this place was also able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Additionally, we gave this nursing home an F in the area of short-term care. In calculating our short-term care grades, we analyze the nursing home's levels of highly skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other licensed professionals. This grade is frequently a solid assessment of the facility's ability to rehabilitate patients. With its poor score in this area, we were not shocked to find this facility provided far fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other nursing homes. The last datapoint we assessed in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 3.4 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these subpar metrics sunk this nursing home's short-term care score.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

The next area we analyzed was nursing, where this nursing home received a bottom of the barrel grade in this category also. Unfortunately, we gave it an abysmal F in this area, which is definitely somewhat alarming. In computing a facility's nursing rating, we look at the amount of time nurses are with residents as well as the level of skill of the nurses. This facility provided only 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This is well below average. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing ratings. This place performed well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care.
