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-plus

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. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all facilities employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we assessed the percentage of patients who ultimately were able to return home from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's residents were able to return home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

One of this facility's better category grades was in the area of nursing care. In that area, we gave this facility a grade of B-. Our nursing grade looks at the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. We consider both the levels of training of the nurses as well as the amount of time spent with patients. This facility averages just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day, which is not an impressive total. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this place excelled in some of the quality-based metrics we assessed. It scored well when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be reliable measures of the quality of nursing care. In many cases, the quality of nursing care is just as important as the number of hours of care provided.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Switching gears to our final area, this facility didn't fare well. With a rock bottom grade of F in long-term care, this is its poorest grade. When facilities receive this kind of grade in long-term care it is often a bad sign for patient care and it may mean that the facility is not as well-staffed. In addition to assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 91.847824 percent of its patients. This is somewhat lower than we anticipated but still a reasonably acceptable figure. Surprisingly, this facility actually fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had just 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This was its best feature in this category.
