Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

Although we gave this place a bad overall grade, we actually awarded it a somewhat respectable score in the category of inspections, where we gave it a B-. This was better than its other categories. These inspection ratings weigh several factors, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This nursing home received 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This indicates that the government inspectors did not deem any of these deficiencies an imminent risk to patient health or safety. A few minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facility was awarded its second best category score in the area of long-term care. We gave this facility a grade of B- in this category, which is a reasonably acceptable grade. For long-term care residents, the facility'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 residents. Once we assessed the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination records. We were pleased to discover that this nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Lastly, this nursing home was also able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.03 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

We awarded this facility a respectable grade in the area of nursing as well, with a grade of C. Our nursing grade is based on numerous factors. The most heavily weighted one is the number of hours nurses spent with patients. This nursing home averages just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Finally, our nursing grades also consider quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. Despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours, this nursing home actually performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is often a reliable indicator that a place has sufficient quality controls in place. Some falls could be avoided if a facility supplies enough nurses to assist its patients.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The last area we looked at is short-term care. Sadly, it received a lowly F for this category, which is a very poor score. Short-term care grades are typically employed to measure a facility's rehabilitation services. In order to provide good rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must feature better levels of highly skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other types of therapists. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. Lastly, we looked at the number of residents that who were able to eventually return home from this nursing home. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 5.1 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was well off the national average.
