Facility Inspections

Grade: A

To go along with its relatively modest overall grade, we gave this facility an A for its inspection grade. This is far better than the facility's overall grade. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining our inspection ratings. One key factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some can be quite insignificant. This place received 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This indicates that the government inspectors didn't deem any of these deficiencies to be an imminent risk to resident safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is always a good sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

We also gave this facility a favorable score in long-term care. This facility received a B+ in this category, which is one of our more impressive scores. When nursing homes receive this kind of score in this category it is typically a good sign for resident care and indicates that the place is well-staffed with nurses and aids. After we finished assessing the volume of nursing care, we next considered the facility's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 98.765434 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is very impressive. Pneumonia sadly is often a dangerous illness for nursing home residents so we prefer when a nursing home does not roll the dice on this issue. Lastly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

In addition, we gave this facility an F in the category of short-term care. In our short-term care score, we endeavor to create a fair gauge for rehabilitation. In doing so, we assess the facility's level of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. Based on its abysmal grade in this category, we weren't shocked to find that this place offered far fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than most other facilities. The last statistic we considered in this area 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 metric as well, with just 0 percent of its residents returning home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

This facility's worst area was nursing, which is the final area we analyzed. It received an abysmal F in this area. Even with several acceptable grades in other categories, this score is still of a concern so we would like to to draw your attention to it. Our nursing score is largely tied to the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home provided a meager 0.2 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing ratings. This facility performed well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
