Facility Inspections

Grade: A

While we were fairly low on this nursing home overall, we awarded it an A for our inspections rating. This score is significantly more impressive than the facility's overall score. Our inspection scores weigh several factors found on a facility's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we weigh heavily is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. You generally want to avoid places with a bunch of deficiencies flagged. This particular nursing home received 14 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.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

This nursing home's next best area was long-term care. We gave it a C in this area. This is basically a middle of the road score in this category. For patients seeking a permanent place to live as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care grades are very important. After considering the amount of nursing care, we next considered the facility's vaccination record. We were a bit alarmed this facility vaccinated a relatively low 67.27642 percent of its patients for pneumonia. Nevertheless, this facility keeps its residents out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

We were surprised to find that this nursing home also excelled in the area of nursing. We gave it an impressive grade of D for that category, which is one of our highest grades. We analyzed the skill-level of nurses at the facility, in addition to the quantity of time the nurses were with patients, in calculating our rating in this category. With just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis, this facility's nurse staffing levels were far below average. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing ratings. This nursing home fared well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Switching gears to our final area, this nursing home really didn't perform very well in this category either. Due to a rock bottom grade of F in short-term care, this is really as as uninspiring as it gets. With our short-term care score, we strive to craft a fair barometer for rehabilitation. In doing so, we look at a facility's offerings of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. Considering its grade in this area, we weren't stunned to discover that this place was well below average in terms of the number of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its patients based on the measures we looked at. Finally, we considered the number of residents who ultimately returned home from this facility. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 3.6 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.
