Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

Although we were not high on this nursing home overall, we gave it an A- for our long-term care rating. Nursing homes that receive this type of score in long-term care typically provide consistent around the clock care to ensure patients are kept in good health. After considering the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 95.41667 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Vaccines are vital to keeping patients out of the hospital. Lastly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B

Remarkably, this facility actually earned a good grade in inspections as well. We gave it a grade of B for that category, which is one of our better scores. Not many nursing homes that were this poor overall earned multiple category grades of this caliber. Arguably the most critical factor we consider in calculating our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. It is generally in your best interest to avoid places that have too many deficiencies. This particular nursing home received 3 deficiencies on its inspection report. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is always a good sign.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Turning to the area of short-term care, this facility received just a D in this area. In our short-term care assessment, we seek to forge a sound gauge for rehabilitation. In this process, we analyze a facility's offerings of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. Considering its score in this area, we were not stunned to learn that this facility was well below average in terms of the number of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its patients based on the measures we assessed. The last statistic we considered in this area is the percentage of patients that eventually returned home from the nursing home. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 5.7 percent of its patients returning home. This was quite a bit below average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

The next area we rated is nursing. It received an F in this area, which is an abysmal score. The nursing grade weighs a handful of data points, but the main consideration is the number of nurse hours per patient per week. This facility provided just 0.1 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing grades. This place performed well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.
