Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

While we were not high on this nursing home's overall grade, it received a very impressive inspection report this year. In fact, it received an excellent inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our best grades in that category with a grade of A+. Our inspection ratings weigh a host of factors found on a nursing home's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we look at is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. You should avoid places with a bunch of deficiencies flagged. 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 had a relatively favorable report.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facility's second best area came in the area of long-term care. In that area, we gave this facility a B-. For patients in need of a permanent residence rather than skilled nursing, long-term care grades are a key measure. One of the factors we considered after nurse's aid hours was vaccinations. Frankly, we were a bit worried that this facility provided the pneumonia vaccination to just 81.51986 percent of its patients. On a more positive note, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

This nursing home ended up receiving a a very poor score in our short-term care category. It received an F in this area. In the area of short-term care, we endeavor to evaluate indicators of a facility's rehabilitation. We assess a facility's skilled nursing services, including the ones performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. Considering its grade in this category, we weren't surprised to discover that this facility was well below average in terms of the number of registered nurse and physical therapy hours offered to its residents based on the metrics we assessed. The final measure we assessed in this category is the percentage of patients that who were able to eventually return home from the facility. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 4.7 percent of its patients returning home. This was quite a bit below average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

The final category we assessed is nursing, where this facility was given a very poor grade in this area also. We gave it a lowly F in this area, which is obviously a major concern. There are a host of data points within this area. Most of these factors reflect nurse staffing. This nursing home offered a meager 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing scores. This facility performed well in terms of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
