Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

While we didn't give this nursing home a good overall score, we awarded it a strong grade in the area of long-term care, where it earned a B. This is better than many nursing homes in this area. This helped an otherwise poor profile. When nursing homes receive a grade in this range in long-term care it generally means it's well-staffed and is an overall good place to live on a permanent basis. After looking at the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination data. This facility vaccinated 99.4709 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is more than the vast majority of nursing homes. Lastly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

We awarded this facility a respectable grade in the area of nursing as well, with a grade of B-. Our nursing rating is primarily associated with a nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This place provides only 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This is a somewhat concerning figure which is well below the national average. Lastly, while this facility got docked a bit for nursing hours, it actually excelled in a few of our quality-based measures. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it fared very well in this metric.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

We gave this nursing home a grade of just D for our short-term care score. This is not a score to write home about. In the category of short-term care, we attempt to assess measures of a facility's rehabilitation services. We assess the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. Considering its grade in this category, we weren't surprised to discover that this place is well below average in terms of the number of registered nurse and physical therapy hours offered to its patients based on the metrics we looked at. Frankly, this was about what we expected to find. Lastly, we considered the number of patients that ultimately were able to return home from this nursing home. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

In our last area of inspections, this nursing home received an F here. We would advise paying close attention to any deficiencies on a facility's inspection reports when it receives this poor of an inspection rating. We would scrutinize the level of severity of the deficiencies. This particular nursing home was assessed 4 deficiencies on its inspection report. The only favorable thing we can say is that none of the deficiencies were in the categories that suggest that they created a risk to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility also received 2 substantiated complaints in recent years. This is yet another bad sign.
