Facility Inspections

Grade: A

While we were not very complementary of this nursing home's overall score, it received a very impressive inspection report this year. In fact, it received an excellent inspection report this year. As a result, it earned one of our highest grades in that category with an A. Perhaps the most important factor we look at in determining our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a nursing home's inspection reports. It is generally in your best interest to avoid places that have a long list of severe deficiencies. 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. In spite of this deficiency, this place still received a relatively favorable inspection report.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

One of this facility's better category grades was in the category of long-term care. This proved to be its second most favorable category. In that category, we awarded this facility a grade of C. Our long-term care grade focuses on a nursing home's personal care rather than the highly skilled nursing or healthcare services that are critical to a rehabilitation facility. Once we finished looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination data. We were optimistic to find that this nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its residents for pneumonia. This nursing home keeps its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

We gave this facility a grade of just D for our nursing rating. When calculating a nursing home's nursing rating, we assess the quantity of hours nurses are caring for patients and the skill levels of those nurses. This nursing home offered only 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This is well below average. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing ratings. This facility fared well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

This nursing home's worst category is short-term care, which is the last category we scored. For this area, we awarded this facility a D. Short-term care ratings are based on the facility's quantity of skilled nursing services. This means a vast range of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, in addition to other types of therapy. As you might expect, we found that this nursing home offers far less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than a typical nursing home. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This wasn't a strength for this facility. We found that just 4.1 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most nursing homes, about half of their patients are able to return home so this is well below average.
