Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

While we didn't give this place a good overall score, we did give it a relatively strong grade in the area of inspections, where it earned a B+. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing our inspection ratings. One key factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some are quite minor. Fortunately, although this nursing home had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G through L. This tells you the inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A few minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

We also awarded this facility a grade of C for our nursing rating. Nursing grades are largely tied to a nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This particular facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This figure is far below average. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this nursing home surprisingly excelled in some of the quality-based metrics we assessed. It performed well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

This nursing home's second worse category was long-term care, where it received a grade of just D in that area. This is a relatively poor score. Facilities that do not fare well in long-term care typically are not as well-staffed and are lagging in a few of the areas of routine medical care we assessed. On top of looking at the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Frankly, we were a bit concerned this nursing home administered the vaccine to just 84.29003 percent of its patients. To our surprise, this place was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility has less hospitalizations than the average nursing home. This is its best feature in this category.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The last area we rated is short-term care, in which this facility received an abysmal grade here also. Unfortunately, we gave it an F in this area, which is definitely somewhat alarming. In our short-term care rating, we seek to create a fair gauge for rehabilitation. In doing so, we assess a nursing home's scope of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. Given its score in this area, we weren't surprised to find that this nursing home is well below average in terms of the number of registered nurse and physical therapy hours offered to its residents based on the figures we looked at. Frankly, this was about what we expected to find. The final datapoint we considered 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 4.8 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these poor metrics was damning for this facility's short-term care grade.
