Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

While this facility's overall grade was not bad, it really fared well in the category of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A+ for that category, which is one of our highest scores. Inspection scores are based on datapoints located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities that score well in this category typically have very few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these facilities generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. 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. Based on this, we had a generally favorable view of this facility's inspections.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home's second highest area is its long-term care grade, where it was awarded a grade of B-. In our long-term care assessment, we focus more on the sheer volume of care offered by a nursing home, along with a few quality measures. In addition to assessing the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. Fortunately, this nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients, which is a very respectable figure. Lastly, this place was also able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Sadly, this facility's third best score is short-term care. Nevertheless, with a grade of D in this category, it still performed somewhat badly. Short-term care grades are based in part on a nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled highly skilled professionals. This means a vast scope of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. With a grade this poor for this category, we were not surprised to find that this nursing home was well below average in several staffing metrics we focus on. It offered substantially fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than most other facilities. Finally, we considered the percentage of patients who eventually returned home from this nursing home. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was well off the national average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

The final area we analyzed is nursing. It received an F for this area, which is a bottom of the barrel grade. This is obviously a significant disappointment. In calculating our nursing scores, we weigh both nursing hours and the training levels 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.
