Facility Inspections

Grade: A

The primary reason this ended up being a decent nursing home is that it earned an elite inspection grade. In fact, its inspection score was far better than its overall grade. In our inspections category, we gave it an A. These inspection ratings take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This nursing home received 10 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This tells you that the government inspectors didn't consider any of these deficiencies an imminent threat to resident safety or health. A couple of minor deficiencies should not lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

This nursing home also received a favorable score in our long-term care category. We gave this nursing home a better than average grade of B in that area. For long-term care residents, the nursing home's primary goal is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. After we finished looking at the volume of nursing care, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination record. This nursing home vaccinated 90.45308 percent of its patients for pneumonia. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.03 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

Moving on to another strength for this facility, it also earned an elite nursing grade. We gave this facility a grade of D. When determining a facility's nursing rating, we assess the quantity of hours nurses are caring for residents and the skill levels of the nurses. This nursing home offered only 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing scores. This nursing home fared well when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The next area we rated was short-term care. Unfortunately, we gave it an F for this area, which is a poor grade. This is clearly a significant disappointment. In calculating these short-term care grades, we analyze the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The objective is to create a measure for comparing the rehabilitation services of various facilities. With a grade this poor in this area, we were not surprised to discover this facility was below average in several staffing metrics we looked at. It provided far fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most facilities. Finally, we assessed the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that just 3.3 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
