Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

While we were fairly low on this facility overall, we awarded it an A- for our inspections rating. This score is significantly more impressive than the nursing home's overall grade. Our inspection grades are tied to datapoints located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are a key item to look for on these inspections. You should especially avoid nursing homes that have severe deficiencies linked to risks to resident well being. 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: B-minus

We also awarded this nursing home a decent score in the area of short-term care, where it received a grade of B-. Short-term care grades are based on a facility's quantity of skilled highly skilled professionals. This means a vast spectrum of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, in addition to other types of therapy. Unfortunately, we found that this facility provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other facilities. The tricky part is determining what bearing this had on the quality of care. Lastly, we assessed the number of residents that were able to return home from this facility. We found that 5.4 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was actually well 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. We looked at the levels of nurses working for the nursing home, in addition to the number of hours those nurses worked with residents, in determining our score in this category. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Finally, our nursing scores also consider quality-based metrics, such as preventing major falls. Despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours, this nursing home performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is typically a good indicator that a facility has sufficient quality controls in place. Some falls can be avoided if a facility provides enough nurses to assist its residents.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The last category we graded is long-term care. This facility received a rock bottom grade of F in that area. For patients seeking a permanent place to live rather than skilled nursing, long-term care grades are a key measure. One of the data points we considered in addition to nursing hours was vaccinations. Fortunately, this nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccination to 98.237885 percent of its patients. To our surprise, this nursing home also fared well at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had just 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Sadly, a few of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.
