Facility Inspections

Grade: A

While this nursing home's overall score was not a highlight, it actually 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. Perhaps the most significant factor we look at in determining our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a facility's recent inspection reports. It is typically in your best interest to avoid places that have a long list of severe deficiencies. 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. In spite of this deficiency, this nursing home still received a relatively positive report.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

This nursing home's next best area was short-term care. We gave it a C in this area. This is essentially a slightly below average score in this category. Short-term care grades are typically employed to grade a facility's performance with rehabilitation. To provide high-end rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to provide higher levels of highly skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other licensed professionals. Unfortunately, this facility was below average in terms of its number of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its patients based on the measures we assessed. The final item we looked at in this category is the percentage of residents who who were able to eventually return home from the nursing home. We found that just 5.2 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

This facility wound up receiving a an abysmal grade in our long-term care area. It received a lowly F in this category. For prospective residents in need of a permanent residence as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care grades are an important measure. Once we assessed the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination data. We were pleased to discover that this nursing home vaccinated 98.83041 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Surprisingly, this nursing home also keeps its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had just 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

The last area we graded is nursing. This facility was given an abysmal grade of F in this category. Our nursing grade focuses on the facility's nurse staffing levels. We look at both the levels of skill of those nurses and the amount of time spent with patients. With just 0.2 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis, this facility's nurse staffing levels were well below average. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing scores. This place fared well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these metrics to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
