Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

While this facility earned a decent overall rating, its inspections score is notably better than its overall score. Due to a strong government inspection report this year, it earned one of our better scores in that area with a grade of B+. Our inspection scores are tied to many items located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities that receive favorable grades in this category tend to have very few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these places generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are 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. Based on this, we still had a generally positive view of this facility's recent inspections.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

We also gave this nursing home a favorable score in long-term care. This nursing home received a grade of B+ in this category, which turns out to be one of our more impressive scores. Facilities that do well in long-term care tend to be well-staffed and offer extensive hands on care to patients. On top of looking at the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 95.07389 percent of its patients, which is very impressive. Pneumonia is too frequently a deadly health condition for nursing home patients so we prefer when a nursing home does not take any chances. Finally, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Moving on to the category of short-term care, this facility received a grade of just D in this area. In computing our short-term care scores, we assess the facility's levels of highly skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists respiratory therapists and other types of therapists. This rating is often a reliable measure of a nursing home's rehabilitation. Based on its weak grade in this area, we weren't shocked to find that this nursing home provided significantly fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most facilities. Finally, we considered the number of patients who ultimately were able to return home from this facility. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was well off the national average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

The final category we analyzed was nursing, proved to be this nursing home's worst category. We awarded this nursing home a grade of D in that area. When calculating a nursing home's nursing grade, we look at the amount of time nurses are with patients and the level of skill of the nurses. This facility averaged just 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing ratings. This facility fared well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these metrics to be reliable measures of the quality of nursing care.
