Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

Although we didn't give this nursing home a good overall grade, we actually gave it a strong grade in the category of inspections, where it earned a B+. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining these inspection ratings. One critical factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some are quite minor. This place was hit with 9 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This means that the government inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies to be an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

This nursing home's long-term care score ended up being one of its respectable scores. The nursing home was given a C in this category. Our long-term care scores are based on the facility's amount of nursing care. This includes a vast range of personal care services, ranging from assistance with activities of daily living to routine healthcare services. After assessing the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination data. We were pleased to find that this nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Finally, this nursing home was also able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

We were stunned to find that this nursing home also excelled in the category of nursing. In fact, we gave it an impressive grade of D for that category, which is one of our best scores. In computing our nursing grades, we look at both nursing hours and the training levels of the nurses. With a meager 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis, this place's nurse staffing levels were quite a bit below average. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing grades. This facility fared well in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these datapoints to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The last area we graded is short-term care, which ended up being a weak link for this nursing home. We gave this facility a grade of D for short-term care. In the area of short-term care, we seek to qualify indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We assess the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. With a score of this caliber in this area, we were not surprised to learn that this nursing home was well below average in several staffing metrics we focus on. In fact, it offered far fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most nursing homes. The last item we considered in this category is the percentage of residents that were able to return home from the facility. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 3.8 percent of its residents returning home. This was well below average.
