Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

This facility earned a solid overall grade as described above, but we really wanted to point out its excellent government inspections in recent years. We awarded them an impressive grade of A- in this category. Arguably the most significant factor we look at in determining our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes with higher scores in this category most likely dodged the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. While this facility had a few minor dings on its report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means that the inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A few minor deficiencies shouldn't lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

Additionally, we awarded this nursing home a grade of B in our long-term care category. This is one of our better grades. Facilities that receive this kind of score in long-term care tend to provide consistent around the clock care to make sure patients are kept in good health. On top of assessing the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home provided the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia can be a life threatening ailment for nursing home patients so we strongly prefer when a nursing home doesn't roll the dice on this issue. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Unfortunately, this nursing home only earned a grade of D for its short-term care grade, which is well below average in this category. In our short-term care category, we seek to forge a fair barometer for rehabilitation. In doing so, we look at the facility's level of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. With its grade in this area, we weren't stunned to find that this nursing home is well below average in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours offered to its patients based on the metrics we assessed. Frankly, this was about what we expected here. Finally, we looked at the number of patients who eventually returned home from this facility. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 5.4 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

The final category we rated was nursing. We gave it an abysmal F for this area, which is a rock bottom score. This is clearly a major disappointment. There are a host of factors included in this area. Many of the factors are tied to the quantity and quality of nurse staffing. This nursing home offered a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This is an alarmingly low total. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing scores. This place performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.
