Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

Although we did not rate this nursing home favorably overall, we want to point out its relatively solid government inspections in recent years. We gave it a B+ in this area, which was much better than its overall grade. Our inspection grades account for a host of factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One key criteria we look at is the number and severity of deficiencies. You should avoid nursing homes with too many deficiencies flagged. 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: C

This facility received its second highest category grade in the category of short-term care. We gave this facility a C in this area, which is an acceptable grade. In forming our short-term care ratings, we look at the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our goal is to formulate a tool for comparing the rehabilitation services of nursing homes. Unfortunately, we found that this place provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. The key is determining what effect this had on quality of care. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of residents who were able to return home from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was well below average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

We awarded this facility a respectable grade in the area of nursing as well, with a grade of C. Our nursing grade includes a host of subcategories. The most heavily weighted factor is the amount of time nurses spend with residents. This facility provides only 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This is a somewhat uninspiring figure as it is well below average. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility fared better in some of the quality-based metrics we assessed. In fact, it performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The final area we looked at is long-term care, which proved to be this nursing home's worst area. We gave this nursing home a D in that category. Facilities that receive this type of score in long-term care likely don't provide the kind of consistent 24/7 care that some other facilities provide. One of the criteria we considered on top of nursing hours is vaccines. Candidly, we were a bit worried that this facility administered the pneumonia vaccination to a relatively low 65.74803 percent of its patients. Surprisingly, this place was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home had less hospitalizations than most nursing homes. This was its best feature in this category.
