Facility Inspections

Grade: A

Although we did not rate this facility highly overall, we want to draw your attention to its excellent inspections in recent years. We awarded them an impressive grade of A in this category. Perhaps the most important factor we look at in calculating our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a nursing home's inspection reports. It is typically best to avoid nursing homes that have too many 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 place still received a relatively favorable report.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

We awarded this facility a grade of just D for our short-term care score and that actually wound up as its second most favorable category. In calculating our short-term care scores, we analyze a nursing home's levels of highly skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other licensed professionals. This rating is more often than not a fair assessment of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. With its grade in this area, we were not surprised to discover that this place is well below average in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours offered to its patients based on the measures we looked at. Finally, we looked at the percentage of residents who eventually returned home from this nursing home. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 4.9 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was well off the national average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

We gave this facility a grade of just D for our long-term care grade. This is not an impressive grade. For prospective patients looking for a permanent place to live rather than rehabilitation, long-term care grades are a key measure. Once we looked at the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination statistics. We were optimistic to find that this facility vaccinated 99.43977 percent of its residents for pneumonia. Surprisingly, this place also keeps its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

The next area we looked at was nursing, where this facility was given an abysmal grade in this category also. Unfortunately, we gave it an F in this area, which is definitely somewhat alarming. There are several factors within this area. Many of these data points reflect nurse staffing. With just 0.2 hours of nursing care per patient each day, this place's nurse staffing levels were quite a bit below average. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing ratings. This facility fared well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these statistics to be reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care.
