Facility Inspections

Grade: A

Although we did not rate this nursing home favorably overall, we want to point out its nearly flawless health inspections in recent years. We awarded them an impressive grade of A in this category. These inspection ratings weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these issues by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this nursing home had a few minor dings on its report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G through L. This means that the inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

This facility's next most favorable category ended up being long-term care. In that area, we awarded this facility a C. For patients seeking a permanent residence rather than rehabilitation, long-term care grades are very important. After we finished assessing the volume of care provided by nurses, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination statistics. We were pleased to find that this facility vaccinates 100 percent of its patients for pneumonia. This facility also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

This nursing home's second worse score is short-term care, where it earned just a D in that category. This is a relatively poor grade. Our short-term care scores are vital for prospective residents needing rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually mandates higher levels of highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes a wide spectrum of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other types of therapy. With a score this poor for this category, we were not surprised to learn that this facility was well below average in multiple staffing areas we focus on. In fact, it offered far fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other nursing homes. The last metric we considered in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 5.1 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these subpar statistics sunk this nursing home's short-term care score.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

The last category we rated is nursing. We gave it an F in this area, which is a very poor score. When computing a nursing home's nursing rating, we weigh the amount of time nurses are seeing residents and the level of licensure of the nurses. This facility offered just 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing grades. This facility performed well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these statistics to be indicators of the quality of nursing care.
