Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

It should be noted that this nursing home's inspection score outpaced its overall score. In fact, we awarded it a B+ for its inspections rating, which is a very solid score. Inspection grades are tied to many datapoints found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities that excel in this category typically have few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these facilities should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. This facility received 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This means that the inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies to cause an immediate threat to patient health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies should not lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

We also awarded this facility a positive score in short-term care. This nursing home received a grade of B in this category, which turns out to be one of our better grades. Our short-term care scores are arguably more meaningful for people requiring rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation generally utilizes more skilled nursing services. This means not only nursing services, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Unfortunately, we were not able to track down information on registered nurse or physical therapy staffing for this nursing home. Finally, we looked at the number of residents who ultimately were able to return home from this nursing home. We found that 5 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

Next, we looked at the nursing category where we awarded this nursing home a grade of B-, which is a decent grade. The nursing grade analyzes many components, but the main consideration is the number of nurse hours spent with patients. This nursing home provides 0 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This is a lower figure than we were hoping for. Lastly, nursing scores also factor in quality-based metrics, such as preventing major falls. Despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours per resident, this nursing home performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is usually a reliable indicator that a facility has sufficient quality controls in place. Many falls can be avoided if a nursing home supplies enough nurses aids to assist its residents.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The final category we rated is long-term care. Unfortunately, we gave it a lowly F for this area, which is a rock bottom grade. This is obviously a major concern. Nursing homes that do not fare well in this category typically aren't as well-staffed and are lagging in some of the areas of routine medical care we assessed. In addition to considering the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 91.89189 percent of its patients, which is a few points below what we anticipated. Surprisingly, this place was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility had less hospitalizations than most nursing homes. This was its best score in this category.
