Facility Inspections

Grade: B

Although we were not high on this facility overall, we awarded it a B for our inspections rating. This grade is far more impressive than the facility's overall grade. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining these inspection grades. One critical factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some can be quite insignificant. 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.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home actually received a decent grade in the area of nursing as well. We awarded it a grade of B- for that category, which is not a bad score. Nursing grades are primarily based on the nursing home's nurse staffing. This nursing home averages just 3.1 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Lastly, we also considered some quality-based metrics in this category. Although this nursing home didn't rank well in terms of nursing hours, it fared much better in some of the quality measures we looked at. In terms of the number of its patients experiencing pressure ulcers, this facility performed better than average. This is usually a good indicator that a place has sufficient quality controls in place. Pressure ulcers can typically be prevented with better nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

This nursing home's third most favorable category turned out to be its long-term care score, where it was awarded a C. In a long-term care environment, the facility's primary objective is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. On top of assessing the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 99.723755 percent of its residents. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 1.15 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home has less hospitalizations than the average nursing home.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The next category we graded is short-term care. This facility was given an abysmal grade of F in this area. In the category of short-term care, we try to qualify indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We assess a facility's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. Not surprisingly, we learned that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than the typical facility. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that just 45 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.
