Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

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 best scores. Inspection scores are based on many items found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are an important item to look for on these reports. Most importantly, you should avoid facilities with severe deficiencies associated with risks to resident well being. While this nursing home had a few minor dings on its inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means the inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A few minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

This facility's short-term care rating ended up being one of its best features. The facility was given a C in this category. Our short-term care grade is commonly used to measure a facility's rehabilitation services. In order to provide good rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to offer higher levels of skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other highly skilled individuals. Unfortunately, we found that this nursing home provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. Finally, we assessed the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 5.2 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most nursing homes, closer to half of their residents are able to return home so this figure is below average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

This nursing home's second least favorable score was long-term care, where it earned a grade of just D in that area. This is a relatively poor score. Long-term care scores of this caliber generally are a bad sign for the quantity and quality of care provided by nurses and aids. On top of looking at the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. We discovered that this facility administered the vaccine to a relatively low 81.914894 percent of its residents, which is a bit of a concern. To our surprise, this nursing home actually fared well at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had just 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This is its best feature in this category.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

The final category we assessed is nursing. Unfortunately, we gave it an F in this category, which is an abysmal score. There are numerous criteria included in this category. Many of the subcategories reflect staffing levels. This nursing home provides 0.3 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 measures in computing our nursing grades. This place performed well in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these statistics to be reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care.
