Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

While this nursing home's overall score was not a highlight, it actually excelled in the category of inspections. In fact, we awarded it an A- for that area, which is one of our highest scores. Inspection grades are based on several pieces of information located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are a key thing to look for on these inspections. Most importantly, you should avoid nursing homes with severe deficiencies associated with endangerment of patients. 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. Despite this deficiency, this was still a relatively positive report.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

This nursing home's long-term care score turns out to be one of its better grades. The facility was given a C in this category. In a long-term care environment, the facility's primary goal is to keep patients healthy and safe. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate residents. One of the statistics we considered in addition to nursing hours was vaccines. Thankfully, this nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccination to 98.89503 percent of its residents. Finally, this nursing home was also able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Unfortunately, this nursing home only earned a D for its short-term care score, which is not a very good score. In determining our short-term care ratings, we look at the facility's levels of skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other licensed professionals. This category is considered to be a fair assessment of the facility's rehabilitation. With its grade in this area, we weren't surprised to learn that this place was well below average in terms of the number of registered nurse and physical therapy hours offered to its residents based on the figures we looked at. The final item we looked at in this category is the percentage of residents that returned home from the facility. This facility struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 0 percent of its patients returning home. Unfortunately, this was quite a bit below the national average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

The next category we assessed was nursing. It received an F for this category, which is a bottom of the barrel grade. When computing a facility's nursing score, we consider the number of hours nurses are caring for residents and the level of licensure of those nurses. With only 0.2 hours of nursing care per resident each day, this nursing home's nurse staffing levels were well below the national average. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing grades. This place fared well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these areas to be indicators of the quality of nursing care.
