Facility Inspections

Grade: B

While this facility's overall score was not a highlight, it actually received a very good grade in the area of inspections. We awarded it a grade of B for that area, which is one of our better scores. Perhaps the most critical factor we look at in determining our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. It is typically in your best interest to avoid nursing homes that have a long list of deficiencies. Fortunately, although this place had a few minor dings on its report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G through L. This means that the government inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facility's long-term care score ended up being one of its better scores. The nursing home received a B- in this category. For prospective residents in need of a permanent residence rather than skilled nursing, long-term care is a very important category. One of the factors we considered in addition to nurse's aid hours is vaccinations. Thankfully, this facility provided the pneumonia vaccine to 100 percent of its patients. Lastly, this facility was also able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

Unfortunately, this facility only received a grade of D for its nursing grade, which was actually one of its better category grades. Our nursing grade is largely associated with the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This place averaged only 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is well below average. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing grades. This nursing home fared well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The final area we looked at was short-term care, in which this facility was given a poor score here also. It received an F in this category, which is definitely very concerning. In the category of short-term care, we try to evaluate indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We look at a facility's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and various therapists. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. Lastly, we considered the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This wasn't a strength for this facility. We found that just 4.8 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home. At most facilities, around half of their residents are able to return home so this is well below average.
