Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

While we did not rate this place favorably overall, we want to point out its relatively solid inspections in recent years. We gave it a B+ in this category, which was much better than its overall grade. Perhaps the most significant factor we consider in computing our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. It is typically in your best interest to avoid facilities that have too many severe deficiencies. Fortunately, although this nursing home had a few minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G through L. This means that the government inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A few minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

We awarded this nursing home a grade of just D for our short-term care rating and that actually ended up being its next most respectable score. In our short-term care rating, we try to create a fair measure for rehabilitation. In this process, we analyze the nursing home's offerings of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. Considering its weak score in this category, we weren't stunned to discover this place offered far fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most facilities. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of patients that who were able to eventually return home from this nursing home. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 5.5 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was quite a bit off the national average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

This nursing home's second lowest score is long-term care, where it earned a grade of just D in that category. This is a relatively poor score. When facilities receive a score in this range in this category it typically means the nursing home didn't perform well in our quality measures relating to resident care. In addition to considering the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. Candidly, we were a bit concerned this nursing home provided the vaccine to just 24.285713 percent of its patients. To our surprise, this place actually fared well at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had just 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This was its best score in this category.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

Turning to our final area, we awarded this facility a D for nursing. This was the nursing home's worst category score. When computing a nursing home's nursing score, we look at the amount of time nurses are seeing residents and the level of licensure of those nurses. This place offered only 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing ratings. This place performed well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
