Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

While we were fairly low on this facility overall, we awarded it an A- for our inspections rating. This score is significantly more impressive than the nursing home's overall grade. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining these inspection scores. One critical factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these can be quite insignificant. We were not able to track down information about this nursing home's deficiencies. Without having deficiency data for this nursing home, it is a challenge to really grade it in this area.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

This nursing home's second most favorable category ended up being short-term care. In that area, we awarded this facility a grade of C. In determining our short-term care grades, we analyze the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The goal is to devise a measure for comparing the rehabilitation services of nursing homes. Unfortunately, this nursing home was below average in terms of its quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its residents based on the measures we assessed. The question is whether this also impacted quality of care. Finally, we assessed the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 5.7 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most facilities, closer to half of their patients are able to return home so this figure is below average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

This nursing home actually received a decent grade in the area of nursing as well. We awarded it a grade of C for that category, which is not a bad score. When computing our nursing scores, we look at both staffing levels and the levels of licensure of the nurses. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this place actually excelled in some of the quality measures we looked at. It scored well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care. In many cases, the quality of nursing care is every bit as important as the number of hours of care provided.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Turning to our fourth area, this nursing home really didn't fare very well in this area either. With an abysmal grade of F in long-term care, this is about as bad as it gets. Long-term care ratings in this range generally are a bad sign for the quantity and quality of care provided by nurses and aids, as well as the levels of routine medical care available. After looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination records. We were disappointed to learn that this facility vaccinated just 70.47619 percent of its residents against pneumonia. To our surprise, this facility actually fared well at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This is its best score in this category.
