Facility Inspections

Grade: A

Although we did not rate this nursing home highly overall, we want to draw your attention to its excellent health inspections in recent years. We awarded them an A in this category. Our inspection grades weigh several factors included in a nursing home's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we consider is the number and severity of deficiencies. You should avoid places with too many severe deficiencies flagged. This place was assessed 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This indicates that the inspectors didn't consider any of these deficiencies to pose an immediate threat to patient safety or health. A few minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The next highest area we awarded this facility in any area came in the category of long-term care, where we gave it a grade of B-. Long-term care scores are based in part on the nursing home's volume of nursing care. This means a broad scope of personal care services, ranging from help with activities of daily living to routine healthcare services. After considering the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination data. This facility vaccinated 97.34849 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is higher than most nursing homes. Lastly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 1.39 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home had less hospitalizations than many nursing homes.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

Among this nursing home's several poor grades was its F in the area of nursing care. Nursing grades are largely associated with the facility's level of nurse staffing. This place offered only 2.9 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This is not a very impressive figure. This place also had abysmal scores in some of the quality-based metrics to pair with its weak nursing hour totals. We looked at the percent of patients experiencing pressure ulcers and we were quite disappointed. This facility was at approximately 150 percent of the national average in this measure. This is likely a bad sign in light of the fact that so many pressure ulcers are preventable with better nursing care. This statistic helped pull down this facility's nursing rating quite a bit.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The final area we scored was short-term care. It received an F for this category, which is a very poor score. In the area of short-term care, we strive to qualify measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We look at a facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. As you might expect, we discovered that this nursing home offers substantially less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than the average facility. The last statistic we assessed in this area is the number of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 41.5 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these poor statistics doomed this facility's short-term care grade.
