Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

Although we did not rate this nursing home favorably overall, we want to point out its relatively solid inspections in recent years. We gave it a B+ in this area, which is much better than its overall grade. Arguably the most important factor we look at in computing our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a nursing home's inspection reports. It is generally best to avoid places that have too many severe deficiencies. Fortunately, although this place had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means that the inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A few minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Turning to the area of long-term care, this nursing home was given just a D in this category. Sadly, this proved to be its second best grade. For long-term care residents, the primary goal is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. After considering the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination records. We were optimistic to learn that this nursing home vaccinated 96.20596 percent of its residents for pneumonia. To our surprise, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home had less hospitalizations than the average nursing home. Sadly, a few of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Sadly, this nursing home only earned a D for its short-term care score, which is not an impressive grade. Short-term care grades are based in part on the nursing home's quantity of skilled highly skilled professionals. This includes a broad scope of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, not to mention other types of therapy. Not surprisingly, we found that this place offers far less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than a typical nursing home. The final statistic we assessed in this area is the number of residents that ultimately returned home from the facility. This facility struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 4.8 percent of its patients returning home. Unfortunately, this was well below the national average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

Turning to the next area, we gave this nursing home a D in our nursing category. This is the nursing home's least impressive category rating. Nursing grades are based in large part on quality and quantity of nursing care. This nursing home provided a meager 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing ratings. This place performed well in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
