Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

Although we were not high on this nursing home overall, we awarded it a grade of B+ for our inspections category. This grade is much more impressive than the facility's overall grade. Perhaps the most significant factor we consider in computing our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's inspection reports. It is generally in your best interest to avoid places that had a long list of 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. Even with this deficiency, this place still received a relatively favorable inspection report.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The second best area we gave this nursing home in any category came in the category of long-term care, where we gave it a grade of B-. In computing our long-term care grades, we assess the nursing home's ability to maintain its permanent residents' health and quality of life. On top of considering the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 92.25589 percent of its patients. This is a bit lower than we were hoping for but still a respectable figure. On a more positive note, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

Among this nursing home's several poor grades was its F in the area of nursing care. Our nursing rating assesses quite a few components, but the primary one is the number of nurse hours per patient per week. This place offered a meager 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing scores. This place 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.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The last area we assessed was short-term care. This nursing home received a very poor grade of F in this area. In computing our short-term care ratings, we look at a facility's levels of skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other highly skilled individuals. This score is considered to be a fair measure of a nursing home's rehabilitation. Considering its poor rating in this category, we weren't stunned to find this nursing home provides substantially fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than most other facilities. The final metric we looked at in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 4.5 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these poor metrics doomed this facility's short-term care score.
