Facility Inspections

Grade: A

We want to draw your attention to the fact that this facility really outperformed its overall grade in the area of inspections. In fact, it received a nearly flawless government inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our best scores in that area with a grade of A. Inspection ratings take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can find more information about each of these items by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Fortunately, although this place had some minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means the government inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. We should note that deficiency-free inspection reports are rare in the industry.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Another one of this facility's more impressive category scores was in the category of long-term care. In that area, we gave this nursing home a grade of B+. It actually outperformed most facilities in this category. Facilities that do well in this category typically provide patients with more supervision and stay on top of routine healthcare services. On top of considering the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home provided the vaccine to 99.78632 percent of its patients, which is much higher than the average nursing home. Finally, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The next category we looked at is short-term care, where this facility was given a grade of C in this category. Short-term care ratings are crucial for people seeking rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically requires more highly-skilled nursing. This includes a broad scope of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we considered the percentage of patients who were able to return home from this nursing home. We found that 5.3 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was quite a bit below the national average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

Moving on to our last category, this nursing home really didn't fare very well. With a poor grade of F in nursing, this is its worst area. The nursing score is based on many subcategories, however, the paramount consideration is the quantity of nurse hours spent with patients. This facility provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing ratings. This nursing home fared well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
