Facility Inspections

Grade: B

While we were not complementary of this nursing home's overall performance, it did receive an impressive inspection report this year with few dings from the applicable government inspectors. As a result, it received one of our better grades in that category with a grade of B. Our inspection ratings are tied to items located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are an important item to look for on these inspections. You should especially avoid nursing homes with severe deficiencies linked to endangerment of patients. This place was hit with 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This tells you that the inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies an immediate risk to resident safety or health. A few minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The second most favorable area we awarded this nursing home in any category came in the category of short-term care, where we awarded it a C. Short-term care scores are based on a nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This means a wide range of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Unfortunately, we found that this facility provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other nursing homes. The key is determining what bearing this had on the quality of care. The final metric we assessed in this category is the number of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We discovered that just 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is actually below average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

This facility's next best category was nursing, but even there it received a grade of just D. This is still a well below average grade. The nursing category weighs a handful of datapoints, most of which are tied to nursing hours. With only 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day, this nursing home's nurse staffing levels were far below average. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing ratings. This facility fared well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The final area we analyzed is long-term care, is this nursing home's least impressive category. We gave this nursing home a grade of D in that category. In a long-term care environment, the facility's primary objective is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. One of the factors we considered in addition to nursing hours is vaccinations. Fortunately, this nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccine to 100 percent of its residents. To our surprise, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home had less hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.
