Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

To pair with its relatively modest overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A+ for its inspection grade. This grade is far better than its overall grade. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating our inspection ratings. One key factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be quite insignificant. 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 a generally favorable view of this facility's recent inspections.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

In addition, we also would like to note that this facility received positive long-term care marks in this assessment. We awarded them one of our more impressive grades in that area, with a B+. This turned out to be the facility's second highest grade. Long-term care scores in this range generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. On top of assessing the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home provided the vaccine to 99.30556 percent of its residents, which is very impressive. Pneumonia is too frequently a life or death illness for nursing home residents so we like it when a facility does not leave this to chance. Finally, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Tragically, this facility received an F for its short-term care grade. In determining our short-term care grades, we assess the nursing home's levels of highly skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other highly skilled individuals. This area is generally a meaningful assessment of a nursing home's ability to rehabilitate patients. Based on its score in this category, we weren't stunned to discover that this facility is well below average in terms of its number of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its patients based on the data we looked at. Frankly, this was about what we expected to find. The last measure we considered in this area is the number of patients who were able to return home from the nursing home. This facility struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 0 percent of its residents returning home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

Moving on to our next area, this facility really didn't perform very well. Due to a bottom of the barrel grade of F in nursing, this is this nursing home's worst category grade. Our nursing grade focuses on the facility's nurse staffing levels. We factor in both the levels of skill of those nurses and the number of hours spent with residents. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident daily. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing scores. This facility performed well in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these data points to be measures of the quality of nursing care.
