Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

While we were not high on this facility's overall performance, it actually received an impressive inspection report this year with few dings from the applicable government inspectors. As a result, it received one of our better grades in that category with a grade of B+. Arguably the most critical factor we consider in determining our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a facility's recent inspection reports. It is generally in your best interest to avoid nursing homes that have a long list of deficiencies. Fortunately, although this place had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means the government inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A few minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

This nursing home's second most favorable category was short-term care. In that category, we gave this facility a C. In the category of short-term care, we seek to assess measures of a facility's rehabilitation services. We analyze the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. We were surprised to find that this facility was below average in the two key staffing areas we looked at. In fact, it offered fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other nursing homes. Finally, we considered the percentage of residents who returned home from this facility. We found that 5.4 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was well below average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

We gave this facility just a D for our long-term care score. This is well below average in this category. When facilities receive this kind of score in this category it is often a bad sign for patient care and it may mean that the place is not as well-staffed. In addition to assessing the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to a relatively low 60.450157 percent of its patients, which is not a very encouraging sign. Surprisingly, this nursing home was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home had fewer hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. This was its best score in this category.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

Turning to the final area, we awarded this facility a grade of D in the area of nursing. This was the nursing home's worst category score. Nursing grades are largely based on a nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This place offered only 0.2 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This is not a very impressive figure. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing ratings. This facility fared well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
