Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

While we didn't give this place a good overall grade, we actually gave it a relatively strong grade in the area of inspections, where it received a B+. Inspection ratings weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these issues by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Fortunately, although this facility had a few minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are found in categories G through L. This means that the government inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A few minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

Another one of this facility's more favorable category grades came in the category of short-term care. In that category, we awarded this nursing home a grade of B. It actually performed better than most nursing homes in this area. Short-term care ratings are based on the nursing home's quantity of skilled nursing services. This means a broad scope of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all facilities employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last metric we looked at in this category is the number of residents who were able to leave the facility and return home. We found that 5.7 percent of this nursing home's residents were able to return home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

Turning to the area of nursing care, this facility received a grade of just D in this category. Our nursing score assesses the facility's nurse staffing levels. We look at both the levels of skill of those nurses as well as the number of hours spent with residents. This facility averaged only 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This is well below average. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This facility fared well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The final category we looked at was long-term care, where this facility received a poor score here also. It received an abysmal F for this category, which is obviously a major concern. Nursing homes that don't fare well in long-term care often don't provide as much nursing care and also may be struggling in some of the areas of routine personal care we looked at. After we finished looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination statistics. We were a bit alarmed this facility vaccinated just 86.36364 percent of its patients for pneumonia. To our surprise, this nursing home was actually decent at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had just 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This was its best feature in this category.
