Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

Although we were not high on this nursing home overall, we awarded it a B+ for our inspections rating. This score is far better than the place's overall grade. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining these inspection grades. One of those factors is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some are quite insignificant. While this nursing home had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G through L. This tells you that the 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 are not necessarily the end of the world.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

This facility's short-term care grade ended up being one of its higher scores. The nursing home was given a grade of C in this category. Our short-term care grade is commonly employed to judge a facility's performance with rehabilitation. In order to provide quality rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to offer better levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other types of therapists. In this nursing home's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than the average facility. The hope is always that this does not adversely affect the quality of care. The last datapoint we considered in this area is the percentage of patients who were able to return home from the facility. We found that just 5.4 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home. This figure was below average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

We were surprised to find that this facility also excelled in the area of nursing. We gave it an impressive grade of D for that category, which is one of our best grades. Our nursing score consists of quite a few subcategories, most of which are tied to nursing hours. This facility averaged just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is not a very impressive figure. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing ratings. This place fared well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these metrics to be reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The next category we analyzed is long-term care, ended up being this nursing home's weakest area. We gave this nursing home a grade of D in that area. Facilities that receive this type of grade in long-term care may not provide the type of consistent around the clock care that some other nursing homes offer. On top of considering the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. As it turns out, this facility gave the vaccine to just 8.426968 percent of its residents, which is not a very encouraging sign. To our surprise, this place was actually decent at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had just 0.03 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This is its best score in this category.
