Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

Although we gave this facility a bad overall rating, we actually awarded it a fairly respectable grade in the category of inspections, where it received a B-. This was quite a bit better than its other category grades. We believe that one of the most critical factors in assessing an inspection report is deficiencies. In this regard, we especially look at the severity of those deficiencies. 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. The lack of deficiencies proved to be this facility's greatest accomplishment.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

We awarded this facility a respectable grade in the area of nursing as well, with a grade of B-. Our nursing rating is largely associated with the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home averages 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient per day, which is a very low figure. Lastly, while this place got dinged a bit for its nursing hours per resident, it actually excelled in a few of our quality measures. With less than five percent of its residents experiencing pressure ulcers, it performed well in this area.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The third area we looked at was short-term care, where this nursing home was given a grade of C in this category. Our short-term care grades are based in part on the nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled highly skilled professionals. This means a broad scope of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Unfortunately, we found that this nursing home provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other nursing homes. The tricky part is determining what effect this had on the quality of care. Lastly, we assessed the number of patients that ultimately returned home from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was quite a bit below average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The next category we rated is long-term care. This facility received a very poor grade of F in that category. Long-term care grades of this caliber generally are a bad sign for the quantity and quality of care provided by nurses and aids, as well as the levels of routine medical care available. In addition to looking at the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Frankly, we were a bit bothered by the fact that this facility vaccinated just 82.77778 percent of its patients. Surprisingly, this facility was actually decent at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had just 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This was its best score in this category.
