Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

In addition to being a respectable nursing home overall, this facility really excelled in the category of inspections, where it received an A+. Few facilities performed better in this area. Inspection scores are based on datapoints found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places that score well in this area typically have few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these nursing homes should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. Fortunately, although this nursing home had some minor dings on its report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you that the inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A few minor deficiencies shouldn't lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

We also gave this facility a decent grade in the area of short-term care, where we awarded it a grade of B-. In computing our short-term care scores, we size up the facility's levels of highly skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other highly skilled individuals. This score is often a reliable assessment of the facility's rehabilitation. Unfortunately, this facility was below average in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its patients based on the measures we assessed. The important question is whether this also affected quality of care. The last measure we looked at in this category is the number of patients who who were able to eventually return home from the facility. We found that just 5.6 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home. Unfortunately, this was below average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The third area we looked at is long-term care, where this facility was given an F. If you are seeking anything other than rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each facility's long-term care grades. After looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination records. We were pleased to discover that this facility vaccinated 95.71429 percent of its patients against pneumonia. To our surprise, this place was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had just 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Sadly, some of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

Switching gears to our last category, this facility didn't perform well. With a very poor grade of F in nursing, this was its poorest category grade. There are a number of subcategories included in this category. Most of the subcategories relate to the quantity of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing scores. This place fared well in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
