Facility Inspections

Grade: A

The main reason this ended up being a decent nursing home is that it received an elite inspection score. Its inspection grade was far better than its overall score. In our inspections category, we gave this facility an A. Inspection scores weigh a host of factors found on a facility's inspection reports. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with better grades in this area tend to have few severe deficiencies. This place was hit with 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered severe. This tells you that the inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies to cause an immediate risk to patient health or safety. A couple of minor deficiencies shouldn't stop you from considering a nursing home.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

This nursing home also was given a strong short-term care grade. As a matter of fact, we awarded it a grade of B in that area, which happens to be one of our more favorable scores. Short-term care ratings are meaningful for individuals needing rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally mandates more skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes a vast scope of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. We weren't able to track down information on registered nurse or physical therapy staffing for this nursing home. Lastly, we considered the percentage of residents that returned home from this nursing home. We found that 6.3 percent of this nursing home's residents were able to return home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

Moving on to another strength for this facility, it also received an elite nursing grade. We gave this nursing home an D. There are several datapoints within this area. Many of the datapoints reflect staffing levels. This nursing home averaged a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This figure is far below the national average. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing ratings. This place performed well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these metrics to be reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

This nursing home's weakest area was long-term care, which is the final category we looked at. Sadly, it received an abysmal F for this area. In spite of several decent grades in other areas, this grade is still of a concern so we wanted to draw your attention to it. Nursing homes that receive this kind of grade in this category may not provide the type of consistent 24/7 care that some other nursing homes provide. On top of assessing the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. Candidly, we were a bit bothered by the fact that this nursing home provided the vaccine to a relatively low 90.181816 percent of its residents. Surprisingly, this place was actually decent at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This is its best feature in this category.
