Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

Although we were not high on this place overall, we awarded it a B+ for our inspections category. This grade is much better than the place's overall grade. These inspection scores weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This particular nursing home received 6 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a solid inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

This nursing home's second best area is short-term care. We awarded it a C in this area. This is essentially a slightly below average score in this area. In crafting our short-term care grades, we look at the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. Our objective is to devise a measure for sizing up the rehabilitation services of various nursing homes. Unfortunately, we found that this nursing home provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. The key is determining what effect this had on the quality of care. The last metric we looked at in this area is the number of residents that eventually returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 5.2 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home. This figure was below average.

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. Our nursing score analyzes a handful of datapoints, however, the main one is the quantity of nurse hours spent with patients. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Lastly, although this place got docked a bit for its nursing hours per resident, it excelled in a few of our quality measures. With fewer than five percent of its residents suffering from pressure ulcers, it did well in this subcategory.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The last category we scored is long-term care, which is a weak spot for this facility. We awarded this facility a grade of D in our long-term care category. If you are seeking anything other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each nursing home's long-term care ratings. After assessing the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 95.679016 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is better than most nursing homes. Surprisingly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility has fewer hospitalizations than many nursing homes. Sadly, some of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.
