Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

Although we didn't give this place a good overall grade, we did give it a relatively strong grade in the area of inspections, where it received a B+. Inspection grades are based on several datapoints found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are a key thing to look for on these inspections. You should especially avoid nursing homes with severe deficiencies linked to risks to resident well being. This particular nursing home received 8 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a solid inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

This nursing home's next best area ended up being short-term care. In that category, we awarded this nursing home a grade of C. In the area of short-term care, we endeavor to assess measures of a facility's rehabilitation. We assess a nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and various therapists. Unfortunately, this facility was below average in terms of its number of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its residents based on the measures we assessed. The final measure we considered in this area is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 5.1 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is below average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

We gave this nursing home just a D for our long-term care rating. This is not one of our better scores. Facilities that don't fare well in long-term care often do not provide as much nursing care and also may be lagging in some of the areas of routine personal care we looked at. In addition to assessing the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. As it turns out, this facility administered the vaccine to only 80.93385 percent of its patients, which is several points lower than we expected. Surprisingly, this nursing home actually fared well at keeping its residents 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.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

Turning to our next category, we gave this nursing home a grade of D for the area of nursing. This is the facility's worst category grade. The nursing category weighs quite a few components, many of which are associated with nursing hours. This nursing home provided a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This is well below average. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing grades. This place fared well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these statistics to be good measures of the quality of nursing care.
