Facility Inspections

Grade: A

While we were not very complementary of this nursing home's overall score, it actually received a very impressive inspection report this year. In fact, it received an excellent inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our best scores in that category with an A. Arguably the most important factor we consider in calculating our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a facility's recent inspection reports. It is typically in your best interest to avoid places that have too many deficiencies. While this facility had some deficiencies on its report, none of them were serious based on CMS' deficiency scale. A couple minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

We also awarded this facility a middle of the road grade in the area of long-term care, with a C. For prospective patients seeking a permanent residence rather than rehabilitation, long-term care grades are an important measure. In addition to considering the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients, which is better than the average nursing home. Lastly, this facility was also able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Our next category we looked at was short-term care, in which this facility received an F. In forming our short-term care grades, we quantify the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The purpose is to formulate a scale for sizing up the rehabilitation services of different nursing homes. With a grade this poor in this area, we weren't surprised to learn this place was well below average in multiple staffing metrics we assess. It provided substantially fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other nursing homes. The final statistic we looked at in this area is the number of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 4.6 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these subpar statistics sunk this facility's short-term care score.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

The final category we graded is nursing. It received a lowly F for this area, which is a poor grade. Nursing scores are based largely on levels of nurse staffing. With a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient daily, this place's nurse staffing levels were significantly below average. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing scores. This facility performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.
