Facility Inspections

Grade: B

While we didn't give this facility a good overall grade, we did give it a relatively strong grade in the category of inspections, where it received a B. Inspection grades account for several factors included in a nursing home's inspection reports. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. You generally want to avoid facilities with a bunch of severe deficiencies flagged. While this facility had some minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G through L. This tells you the inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home's next best area is its short-term care score, where it received a grade of B-. In determining our short-term care ratings, we scrutinize the facility's levels of highly skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists respiratory therapists and other highly trained professionals. This score is more often than not a fair assessment of a facility's ability to rehabilitate patients. Unfortunately, this place was below average in terms of its quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its residents based on the measures we assessed. The final measure we considered in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 5.5 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is actually 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. Nursing scores are heavily correlated with nurse staffing levels. 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, despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours, this place actually performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is usually an indicator that a nursing home has quality controls in place.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The final category we graded was long-term care, in which this nursing home received an abysmal grade here as well. It received an F for this category, which is definitely somewhat alarming. Nursing homes that receive this type of grade in long-term care may not provide the kind of consistent 24/7 care that some other nursing homes offer. After assessing the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination records. Unfortunately, this facility vaccinated only 87.73946 percent of its patients for pneumonia. To our surprise, this nursing home was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home has less hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. This is its best feature in this category.
