Facility Inspections

Grade: A

The main reason this nursing home received a decent overall score is its excellent government inspections in recent years. We gave it one of our better grades in that area, with an A. This is a much better score than the facility's overall grade, which was decent but not in the elite range. Inspection grades are tied to several datapoints located in 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 places generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. 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.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

This facility also received an impressive long-term care grade. Indeed, we awarded it a B in that area, which happens to be one of our better. Nursing homes that receive this type of score in long-term care tend to provide consistent around the clock care to ensure residents are well cared for. Once we assessed the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This facility vaccinated 97.15762 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Vaccines are vital to keeping residents healthy. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

Another strength of this facility is its favorable grade in nursing. We gave them one of our better scores in that area, with a grade of D. The nursing rating weighs quite a few datapoints, most of which are based on levels 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 assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This place fared well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Turning to our last category, this facility did not perform well. With a bottom of the barrel grade of F in short-term care, this is this nursing home's worst category grade. In crafting our short-term care ratings, we analyze the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our objective is to devise a tool for sizing up the rehabilitation services of different nursing homes. Given its poor rating in this category, we weren't stunned to discover this nursing home offered far fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than most other facilities. Finally, we considered the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that just 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
