Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

While we were not high on this nursing home's overall grade, it actually received a very impressive inspection report this year. In fact, it received an excellent inspection report this year. As a result, it earned one of our best grades in that category with an A-. These inspection ratings weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines.

A couple minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facility's second most favorable category ended up being long-term care. In that category, we awarded this facility a B-.

Indeed, it had only 0.03 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Additionally, we gave this facility a rock-bottom F in the area of short-term care. Our short-term care grade is commonly employed to assess a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation In order to provide high-end rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to have better levels of highly skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other highly skilled individuals. Not surprisingly, we discovered that this facility provides substantially less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than a typical facility. The final item we looked at in this category is the number of residents who ultimately returned home from the nursing home. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 0 percent of its residents returning home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

Switching gears to our next category, this nursing home did not fare well here either. With a poor grade of F in nursing, this is about as terrible as it gets. Our nursing grade includes a handful of factors, however, the main consideration is the number of nurse hours per patient per week. This facility averaged a meager 0 hours of nursing care per patient each day. Lastly, we also looked at some quality-based metrics in computing our nursing ratings. This facility was above average in two of the major metrics we focus on, with good marks for minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. These data points are usually reliable measures of the quality of nursing care available.
