Facility Inspections

Grade: A

While this nursing home's overall grade was not a highlight, it actually really excelled in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it an A for that category, which is one of our best scores. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing these inspection scores. One key factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some can be quite insignificant. This particular nursing home received 5 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a solid inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

We awarded this facility just a D for our short-term care grade and that actually wound up as its second highest score. In computing these short-term care grades, we assess the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The goal is to formulate a scale for sizing up the rehabilitation services of different facilities. With a score this poor for this category, we were not surprised to find that this nursing home was well below average in several staffing areas we focus on. The facility provided far fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most facilities. The final measure we looked at in this area is the percentage of residents that ultimately returned home from the facility. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 5.1 percent of its residents returning home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Sadly, this facility received an F for its long-term care score. For residents seeking a permanent residence rather than skilled nursing, long-term care is a very important category. After assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 96.464645 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is better than the average nursing home. To our surprise, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home has fewer hospitalizations than many nursing homes. Sadly, some of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

The final category we looked at was nursing. This nursing home was given a bottom of the barrel grade of F in that category. Our nursing grade considers a variety of subcategories. The most heavily weighted variable is the amount of time nurses spent with patients. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
