Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

Although we gave this nursing home a terrible overall grade, we gave it an A- for our inspections rating. This grade is far more impressive than the nursing home's overall score. Inspection scores weigh several factors, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can find more information about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Amazingly, this was one of the few nursing homes in the country that had no deficiencies whatsoever on its inspection report. This is very impressive. The lack of deficiencies is this nursing home's greatest accomplishment.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Additionally, we gave this facility an F in the category of short-term care. In determining our short-term care grades, we size up the nursing home's levels of skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other types of therapists. This score is typically a solid assessment of a facility's ability to rehabilitate patients. With a grade of this caliber in this area, we weren't shocked to find this facility was well below average in the two key staffing metrics we looked at. The nursing home offered significantly fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most nursing homes. Finally, we looked at the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that just 4.8 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Our third area we looked at is long-term care, in which this nursing home was given an F. For prospective residents looking for a permanent place to live rather than rehabilitation, long-term care is a very important category. On top of assessing the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 99.570816 percent of its patients, which is more than the majority of nursing homes. Surprisingly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home had fewer hospitalizations than the average nursing home. Sadly, a few of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

The last category we graded was nursing, in which this facility was given an abysmal grade here also. Sadly, it received an abysmal F for this category, which is obviously a major disappointment. We weighed the qualifications of nurses working for the facility, as well as the quantity of hours those nurses spent with residents, in calculating our grade in this area. This nursing home averaged a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This is well below average. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing ratings. This facility fared well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.
