Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

The main reason this facility received a decent overall score is its impeccable health inspections in recent years. We gave it one of our better grades in that area, with an A+. This is a notably better score than the place's overall grade, which was decent but certainly not elite. These inspection ratings weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these items by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Amazingly, this was one of the few nursing homes in the country that had no deficiencies whatsoever on its inspection report. This is very impressive. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

Turning to an additional strength for this nursing home, it also received a top-shelf long-term care grade. In fact, we gave this facility a score of A-. For residents looking for a permanent place to live as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care is a very important category. After assessing the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 83.91813 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which happens to be slightly lower than we were hoping for but still a respectable figure. While its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we like to see, we were pleased to find place was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Moving on to the area of short-term care, this nursing home received just a D in this area. With our short-term care category, we attempt to craft a sound measure for rehabilitation. In doing so, we look at the nursing home's level of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. In this nursing home's case, we found that it provides less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. The last datapoint we looked at in this area is the number of residents who who were able to eventually return home from the facility. This facility struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 0 percent of its patients returning home. Unfortunately, this was well below the national average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

The next category we analyzed is nursing. It received a lowly F for this area, which is a rock bottom grade. This is clearly a major concern. There are numerous factors included in this area. Most of the data points reflect staffing levels. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing grades. This nursing home performed well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
