Facility Inspections

Grade: A

This nursing home received a solid overall grade as described above, but we really wanted to emphasize its nearly flawless government inspections in recent years. We awarded them an A in this category. Inspection scores account for a host of factors included in a nursing home's inspection report. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Places with higher grades in this category generally have few severe deficiencies. 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 had positive view of this facility's inspections.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

Another one of this nursing home's higher category grades was in the category of long-term care. In that area, we gave this nursing home a grade of B. Nursing homes that do well in long-term care typically are well-staffed and offer extensive hands on care to patients. Once we looked at the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination records. This nursing home vaccinated 94.976074 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is better than most nursing homes. Lastly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

Another strength of this facility is its favorable grade in nursing. We awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with a score of D. Our nursing grade includes several subcategories, most of which are associated with levels of nurse staffing. This facility provided only 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident daily. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This place fared well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these datapoints to be reliable measures of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

This nursing home's weakest area was short-term care, which is the last area we analyzed. We gave it an abysmal F in this area. In spite of a few decent scores in other areas, this score is nevertheless alarming so we would like to to make sure you are aware. Our short-term care ratings are based on a facility's quantity of highly-skilled nursing services. This means a broad range of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, not to mention other variations of therapy. Not surprisingly, we discovered that this place offers substantially less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than the average facility. Finally, we assessed the number of patients that 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.
