Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

While this facility's overall grade was not bad, it really fared well in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A+ for that category, which is one of our best scores. These inspection ratings take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like we have deficiency counts for this nursing home. Without having all of the deficiency related data for this nursing home, it is difficult to really evaluate it in the area of inspections.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home earned high grades in our nursing category as well. In fact, it received one of our highest grades in that category with an B-. Our nursing rating analyzes the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. We look at both the levels of licensure of the nurses and the number of hours spent with patients. This nursing home averages 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis, which is well below average. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics. Although this facility got dinged a bit for its nursing hours, it excelled in some of these quality-based measures. With fewer than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it fared remarkably well in this metric. This is typically a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can typically be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as by employing a system of turning residents even once per day.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

This nursing home's second least favorable category is long-term care, where it earned a grade of just D in that category. This is a relatively poor grade. Long-term care scores in this range generally are a bad sign for the quantity and quality of care provided by nurses and aids, as well as the levels of routine medical care available. After considering the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination record. We were concerned by the fact that this nursing home vaccinated only 54.72973 percent of its patients against pneumonia. To our surprise, this facility was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility has fewer hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. This was its best feature in this category.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The final category we looked at is short-term care, was this facility's weakest category. We gave this facility a D in this category. In the category of short-term care, we attempt to qualify indicators of a facility's rehabilitation services. We analyze the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. Considering its weak score in this area, we weren't surprised to learn this facility provided significantly fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most facilities. Finally, we considered the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that just 4.1 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
