Facility Inspections

Grade: A

We want to draw your attention to the fact that this nursing home outperformed its overall grade in the area of inspections. In fact, it received an excellent inspection report this year. As a result, we gave it one of our best grades in that area with an A. Our inspection grades are based on many pieces of information found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes that score well in this area typically have very few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these facilities should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. This nursing home was hit with 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered severe. This means that the government inspectors didn't deem any of these deficiencies to create an imminent threat to resident safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

An additional strength of this nursing home is its very impressive score in long-term care. We gave them one of our best scores in that area, with a grade of A-. For prospective patients looking for a permanent place to live as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care grades are a key measure. On top of assessing the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 31.899645 percent of its patients, which is a few points lower than we anticipated. Although its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we like to see, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.04 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

Moving on to another strength for this facility, it also earned an elite nursing rating. In fact, we gave this nursing home an D. There are several criteria included in this grade. Many of these factors relate to the quantity and quality of nurse staffing. This nursing home offered just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing grades. This place fared well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these datapoints to be measures of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The last category we assessed was short-term care. Unfortunately, we gave it an F for this area, which is a bottom of the barrel grade. This is clearly a major concern. Our short-term care scores are important for residents in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually utilizes more skilled nursing. This means a wide spectrum of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other types of therapy. In this nursing home's case, we found that it provides less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. Finally, we assessed the percentage of patients who were able to return home from this nursing home. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 4.7 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was well off the national average.
