Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

While we graded this nursing home incredibly poorly overall, it received an impressive government inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our best scores in that area with an A-. Our inspection grades are tied to datapoints found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are a key thing to look for on these inspections. Most importantly, you should avoid facilities that have severe deficiencies associated with endangerment of patients. 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 positive inspection report.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

In addition, we gave this facility an F in the category of short-term care. In our short-term care grade, we try to craft a valuable measure for rehabilitation. In doing so, we analyze the nursing home's levels of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. Based on its score in this area, we were not surprised to learn that this place was well below average in terms of its quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its patients based on the measures we looked at. Honestly, this was about what we expected here. Finally, we assessed the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. This wasn't a strength for this nursing home. We found that just 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most facilities, about half of their patients are able to return home so this is well below average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

Among this nursing home's several poor grades was its F in the area of nursing care. Nursing grades are based largely on quantity of nursing care available. With just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident each day, this place's nurse staffing levels were well below the national average. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing grades. This nursing home fared well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The last category we assessed is long-term care. This nursing home was given a poor grade of F in that area. For residents in need of a permanent residence rather than rehabilitation, long-term care grades are a key measure. One of the factors we considered in addition to nurse's aid hours is vaccinations. Fortunately, this nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccine to 99.64789 percent of its patients. Surprisingly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home had fewer hospitalizations than the average nursing home. Sadly, a few of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.
