Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

Although we did not rate this facility favorably overall, we want to draw your attention to its nearly flawless government inspections in recent years. We awarded them an A- in this category. Arguably the most important factor we look at in determining our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. It is typically best to avoid facilities that had too many deficiencies. This place was assessed 7 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be severe. This tells you that the inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies to pose an immediate risk to resident safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

This nursing home actually received a decent grade in the area of nursing as well. We awarded it a grade of C for that category, which is not a bad score. Nursing grades are largely associated with a facility's nurse staffing. This facility provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This figure is significantly below the national average. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility actually fared better in some of the quality measures we assessed. In fact, it scored well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Sadly, this facility's third highest category is short-term care. As it turns out, with a grade of D in this area, it still fared somewhat poorly. Our short-term care scores are thought to be more meaningful for residents in need of rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation generally requires higher levels of skilled nursing. This means not merely nursing, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. As you might expect, we found that this place offers substantially less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than the average nursing home. Finally, we considered the number of residents that eventually returned home from this nursing home. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 4.4 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Switching gears to our next area, we gave this facility a D for the area of long-term care. This was the facility's weakest category score. In a long-term care setting, the primary goal is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. After assessing the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then looked at the facility's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 98.0456 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is more than the vast majority of nursing homes. Surprisingly, this place also keeps its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Sadly, some of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.
