Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

We would like to point out that this facility's inspection rating exceeded its overall score. This facility earned a grade of B+ in this area, which is a quality score. Arguably the most significant factor we consider in calculating our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes with higher scores in this area typically dodged the more severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Based on this, we still had a generally favorable view of this facility's inspections.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home was given its second highest category score in the area of short-term care. We awarded this nursing home a B- in this category, which is a respectable grade. In the area of short-term care, we strive to qualify indicators of a facility's rehabilitation. We analyze the facility's skilled nursing services, including the ones performed by registered nurses and various therapists. We found that this place was below average in the two key staffing areas we looked at. In fact, it provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other nursing homes. It is still important to determine whether this also correlates to a lower quality of care. The last statistic we considered in this category is the number of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We discovered that just 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is actually below average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

One of this facility's better category grades was in the area of nursing care. In that area, we gave this facility a grade of B-. Our nursing category weighs a handful of datapoints, many of which are based on nursing hours. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This is a low total compared with most other facilities. Finally, our nursing scores also consider quality-based metrics, such as preventing major falls. Despite not having the highest total nursing hours per resident, this place performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is generally a good indicator that a facility has sufficient quality controls in place. Some falls can be avoided if a facility provides enough nurses aids to assist its residents.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

This facility's worst category was long-term care, which is the last category we assessed. For this area, we awarded this facility a grade of D. Nursing homes that do not fare well in long-term care often do not provide as much nursing care and also may be lagging in a few of the areas of routine medical care we looked at. In addition to considering the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. We discovered that this nursing home provided the vaccine to only 53.043476 percent of its residents, which is a bit of a concern. Surprisingly, this facility was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home had fewer hospitalizations than the average nursing home. This is its best score in this category.
