Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

Although we did not rate this nursing home favorably overall, we want to point out its relatively solid inspections in recent years. We gave it a respectable grade of B+ in this category, which is much better than its overall grade. Inspection scores are tied to many items found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are a key item to look for on these reports. You should especially avoid nursing homes with severe deficiencies linked to risks to resident well being. This facility was hit with 7 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be major deficiencies. This indicates that the government inspectors did not consider any of these deficiencies to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A few minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.

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 grade is mostly based on a nursing home's nurse staffing. 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. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics. While this place got dinged a bit for nursing hours per resident, it actually excelled in a few of these quality-based measures. With fewer than five percent of its residents experiencing pressure ulcers, it did remarkably well in this metric. This is often a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can generally be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as by having a policy of moving residents at least once a day.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

We gave this facility just a D for our short-term care grade. This is not a score to write home about. In determining our short-term care ratings, we analyze a nursing home's levels of highly skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other licensed professionals. This score is more often than not a fair measure of a nursing home's rehabilitation. With its score in this area, we were not stunned to discover that this place was well below average in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours offered to its patients based on the figures we assessed. Frankly, this was about what we expected here. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that just 4.6 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The next category we scored is long-term care, which ended up being this facility's worst area. We awarded this facility a grade of D in this area. Facilities that don't fare well in this category typically aren't as well-staffed and are lagging in some of the areas of routine medical care we looked at. In addition to considering the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. Frankly, we were a bit worried that this facility provided the vaccine to a relatively low 86.04652 percent of its patients. Surprisingly, this place was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home had less hospitalizations than most nursing homes. This was its best feature in this category.
