Facility Inspections

Grade: B

While we gave this facility a poor overall grade, we gave it a grade of B for our inspections rating. This is the result of the nursing home receiving a quality government inspection report this year. These inspection grades take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these items by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This particular nursing home received 13 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: D

Turning to the category of short-term care, this nursing home received a grade of just D in that category. Unfortunately, this wound up being one of its better grades. Our short-term care grade is commonly used to gauge a facility's performance with rehabilitation. In order to have highly graded rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to offer better levels of skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other licensed professionals. Given its score in this area, we were not stunned to find that this place was well below average in terms of the number of registered nurse and physical therapy hours offered to its patients based on the figures we assessed. The last datapoint we assessed in this area is the number of patients who ultimately were able to return home from the facility. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 4.9 percent of its residents returning home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

Turning to the area of nursing care, this facility received a grade of just D in this category. Nursing ratings are primarily based on a nursing home's nurse staffing. This facility provided a meager 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient per day. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing grades. This facility performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these areas to be measures of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The next category we graded was long-term care, which turned out to be this nursing home's worst category. We gave this facility a D in this area. Facilities that receive this type of score in long-term care may not provide the kind of consistent 24/7 care that some other nursing homes provide. In addition to assessing the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Candidly, we were a bit concerned this facility vaccinated a relatively low 68.89764 percent of its residents. To our surprise, this facility actually fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had just 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This is its best score in this category.
