Facility Inspections

Grade: A

This facility earned a solid overall grade as described above, but we really wanted to point out its excellent inspections in recent years. We gave them an impressive grade of A in this category. Our inspection ratings are tied to several items found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places that excel in this area have very few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these facilities should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. This particular nursing home received 5 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a solid inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

We also awarded this facility a positive grade in long-term care. This nursing home received a grade of B in this category, which turns out to be one of our more impressive grades. When facilities receive a score in this range in long-term care it typically means it has plenty of staff and is an overall good place to reside on a permanent basis. On top of considering the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 94.25786 percent of its residents, which is better than the majority of nursing homes. Finally, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facility's next best category was its nursing grade, where it received a grade of B-. We assessed the skill-level of nurses at the facility, as well as the quantity of hours the nurses worked with patients, in computing our score in this category. This place provides only 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This is a somewhat discouraging figure as it is well below the national average. Finally, nursing grades also factor in quality-based metrics, such as avoiding major falls. Despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours per resident, this place actually performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is generally a good indicator that a place has quality controls in place. Many falls could be avoided if a facility provides enough nurses aids to assist its residents.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Turning to the last category, this facility really did not perform very well. Due to an abysmal grade of F in short-term care, this was this nursing home's weakest grade. Our short-term care ratings are based in part on the nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This includes a wide scope of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, not to mention other forms of therapy. Considering its abysmal score in this category, we were not stunned to find this nursing home provides significantly fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than most nursing homes. Finally, we looked at the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that just 3.4 percent of this facility's patients returned home.
