Facility Inspections

Grade: A

In addition to being a respectable nursing home overall, this facility also excelled in the area of inspections, where it earned an A. Few nursing homes performed better in this area. These inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can find more information about each of these factors by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Fortunately, although this place had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you that the government inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies shouldn't lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

We also awarded this nursing home a middle of the pack grade in the category of short-term care, where we gave it a grade of B-. In computing our short-term care ratings, we quantify the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The objective is to formulate a scale for comparing the rehabilitation services of various nursing homes. Unfortunately, we found that this nursing home provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other nursing homes. Lastly, we considered the number of residents that were able to return home from this nursing home. We found that 5.3 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was actually well below the national average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home was awarded its next best category score in the area of long-term care. We awarded this facility a B- in this category, which is a reasonably acceptable grade. If you are seeking services other than rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each facility's long-term care ratings. Once we assessed the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination records. We were pleased to find that this nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients for pneumonia. This facility also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

This facility's worst area is nursing, which is the last category we analyzed. For this category, we awarded this facility a grade of D. Our nursing score analyzes the nursing home's nurse staffing levels. We look at both the levels of licensure of the nurses as well as the number of hours spent with patients. This nursing home offered only 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This facility also had abysmal marks in some of the quality-based measures to pair with its weak nursing hours. We looked at the percent of residents experiencing pressure ulcers and we were very disappointed. This facility was at roughly 150 percent of the national average in this metric.
