Facility Inspections

Grade: A

In addition to being a respectable nursing home overall, this place really excelled in the area of inspections, where it received a grade of A. Few nursing homes performed better in this area. Our inspection scores are tied to many items found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes that excel in this category have very few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these nursing homes should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. While this facility had some deficiencies on its report, none were severe based on CMS' scale. A couple of minor deficiencies should not stop you from considering a nursing home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home received its second highest category score in the area of long-term care. We awarded this facility a B- in this area, which is a reasonably acceptable score. For long-term care residents, the nursing home's primary objective is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. Once we assessed the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination records. We were somewhat surprised to discover that this facility vaccinated a relatively low 61.61616 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Nevertheless, this nursing home was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

Another strength of this facility is its favorable grade in nursing. We gave them one of our better scores in that area, with an impressive grade of D. When computing our nursing grades, we assess both nursing hours and the training levels of the nurses. This facility averaged just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This is an alarmingly low total. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing ratings. This facility fared well in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The final category we graded was short-term care. We gave it an abysmal F in this area, which is an abysmal grade. This is certainly a major disappointment. Our short-term care scores are based in part on the facility's quantity of highly-skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This means a wide spectrum of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, in addition to other types of therapy. With its poor grade in this area, we weren't surprised to find that this facility offered substantially fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other facilities. The final statistic we considered in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 5 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these poor metrics was damning for this facility's short-term care grade.
