Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

The primary reason this facility received a decent overall grade is its impeccable government inspections in recent years. We awarded them one of our better scores in that category, with an A+. This is a much better score than the facility's overall grade, which was decent but not in the elite range. Inspection scores are based on datapoints found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes that receive favorable grades in this area typically have very few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these places generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. Fortunately, although this nursing home had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means the inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A few minor deficiencies shouldn't lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home's long-term care grade appears to be one of its best grades. The nursing home was awarded a grade of B- in this area. In calculating our long-term care grades, we analyze the facility's ability to maintain its permanent residents' health and quality of life. One of the factors we considered in addition to nurse's aid hours is vaccines. Thankfully, this nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccination to 100 percent of its patients. This facility keeps its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

This nursing home's next most favorable category came in the area of short-term care. In that category, we gave this nursing home a grade of C. In calculating these short-term care ratings, we quantify the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. Our purpose is to devise a barometer for comparing the rehabilitation services of various facilities. Unfortunately, this place was below average in terms of its quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its residents based on the measures we assessed. The question is whether this also affected quality of care. The final metric we assessed in this area is the percentage of patients who were able to return home from the facility. We found that just 5.5 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

Moving on to our final area, this facility really didn't perform well. With a rock bottom grade of F in nursing, this is this nursing home's weakest area. The nursing grade weighs many subcategories, many of which are based on nursing hours. This place offered only 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. In addition to its subpar nursing hour totals, this place earned poor scores in many of the quality-based metrics we looked at in calculating our nursing grades. We found that more of this facility's patients sustained falls which led to serious injury. We would argue that many falls could be avoided with better nursing care. This metric contributed to this facility receiving a terrible nursing grade.
