Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

Although we did not rate this nursing home highly overall, we want to draw your attention to its excellent health inspections in recent years. We awarded them an A- in this category. Inspection ratings are tied to many items found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are a key item to look for on these inspections. Most importantly, you should avoid facilities with severe deficiencies associated with risks to resident well being. Fortunately, although this facility had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you the government inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A few minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The second most favorable category we gave this nursing home in any category came in the category of short-term care, where we gave it a B-. Our short-term care grades are based on the nursing home's quantity of skilled highly skilled professionals. This includes a wide scope of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, in addition to other types of therapy. Unfortunately, we found that this nursing home provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. The tricky part is determining what bearing this had on quality of care. Lastly, we considered the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. This proved to be more of a strength for this facility. In fact, we found that it outperformed the majority of facilities with 52 percent of its residents returning home. This is a better rate than most facilities.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

This facility's next best category was nursing, but even there it received a grade of just D. This is still a well below average grade. Our nursing rating assesses quite a few subcategories, however, the paramount one is the number of nurse hours per patient per week. This nursing home averages 3.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day, which is below the national average. Unfortunately, this place also had abysmal scores in some of the quality-based metrics to pair with its low nursing hour totals. We looked at the percent of residents sustaining pressure ulcers and we were disappointed. This facility was at approximately 150 percent of the national average in this measure.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The last category we rated is long-term care. Unfortunately, we gave it a lowly F in this area, which is a poor grade. In a long-term care setting, the primary goal is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. In addition to assessing the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its residents, which is higher than the vast majority of nursing homes. Surprisingly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 1.45 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home had less hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.
