Facility Inspections

Grade: A

While this nursing home's overall grade was decent, it really excelled in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A for that category, which is one of our best scores. Inspection scores account for a host of factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One key criteria we look at is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with higher grades in this area usually have few of these severe deficiencies. Unfortunately, it does not appear that we have information about this nursing home's deficiencies. Without all of the information regarding deficiencies for this nursing home, it ended up being challenging to evaluate the place in terms of this category.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

We also awarded this nursing home a middle of the pack score in the category of long-term care, where we awarded it a grade of B-. In computing our long-term care ratings, we analyze the nursing home's personal care services. In addition to looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 99.03846 percent of its residents. This place was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. Although it had 1.95 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, its risk adjusted score was better than most facilities due to it having more complex patients.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Moving on to the area of short-term care, this facility was awarded a grade of just D in this category. Short-term care ratings are based in part on a facility's quantity of skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This includes a wide spectrum of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, not to mention other types of therapy. Unfortunately, this nursing home was below average in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its residents based on the measures we assessed. Finally, we considered the percentage of patients that who were able to eventually return home from this facility. This nursing home did not fare well here either. We found that just 46.7 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

The next area we scored is nursing. Sadly, it received an abysmal F for this category, which is a rock bottom grade. This is certainly a significant concern. We scrutinized the levels of nurses employed by the nursing home, as well as the quantity of time those nurses were with patients, in determining our grade in this area. This nursing home averages 3.7 hours of nursing care per resident per day, which is below the national average. On top of being below average in nursing hours per resident, this place also had poor marks in the quality-based measures we looked at in computing our nursing ratings. We looked at the percent of patients experiencing pressure ulcers and major falls. This place was at approximately 1.5 times the national average in both of these statistics. This is a bad sign when you consider that many falls and bed sores are believed to be preventable with better nursing care. These statistics helped pull down this facility's nursing rating quite a bit.
