Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

Although we were not high on this place overall, we awarded it a B+ for our inspections category. This grade is far more impressive than the place's overall score. Our inspection grades account for a host of factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One key criteria we look at is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. You should avoid nursing homes with too many deficiencies flagged. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Despite this deficiency, this place still received a relatively positive inspection report.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

We awarded this facility a respectable grade in the area of nursing as well, with a grade of B-. Nursing grades are mostly based on the facility's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home averages just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility surprisingly excelled in some of the quality measures we assessed. It performed well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Unfortunately, this facility's third highest score is short-term care. However, with a grade of D in this area, it still performed somewhat badly. In determining our short-term care ratings, we size up the nursing home's levels of skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other highly trained professionals. This rating is considered to be a solid assessment of a nursing home's rehabilitation. With a grade of this caliber for this area, we were not stunned to find this place was well below average in multiple staffing figures we assess. It provided far fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than most nursing homes. The final item we assessed in this area is the number of patients who returned home from the facility. This facility struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 4.9 percent of its patients returning home. Unfortunately, this was well below the national average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The last category we graded is long-term care, in which this nursing home received a poor grade here also. Sadly, it received an abysmal F in this area, which is definitely very concerning. Facilities that don't fare well in this category often do not provide as much nursing care and also may be lagging in a few of the areas of routine medical care we assessed. After assessing the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination data. We were concerned by the fact that this facility vaccinated just 84.913795 percent of its residents for pneumonia. Surprisingly, this place was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility has less hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. This was its best feature in this category.
