Facility Inspections

Grade: A

While this facility's overall grade was not bad, it really fared well in the category of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A for that category, which is one of our highest scores. Inspection grades take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. 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. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is always a good sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Another one of this facility's more impressive category scores came in the category of long-term care. In that area, we gave this nursing home a B+. When nursing homes receive a score in this range in this category it typically means it has plenty of staff and is an overall good place to live on a permanent basis. In addition to looking at the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 95.09804 percent of its patients, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia sadly can be a life or death health condition for nursing home patients so we prefer when a nursing home doesn't leave this to chance. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

As it turns out, this facility only earned a D for its short-term care rating, which is not a score to write home about. In the category of short-term care, we strive to evaluate measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We analyze the facility's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and various therapists. Considering its grade in this category, we were not stunned to learn that this nursing home is well below average in terms of its number of registered nurse and physical therapy hours offered to its residents based on the metrics we assessed. Finally, we considered the number of residents who ultimately were able to return home from this facility. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 5.7 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

The final category we looked at was nursing, which ended up being this facility's least impressive category. We gave it an F for this area, which is clearly very disappointing. Our nursing category includes many data points, most of which are associated with nursing hours. This place provided only 0.2 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This is not a very impressive figure. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing ratings. This facility fared well in terms of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
