Facility Inspections

Grade: A

To go along with its decent overall grade, we awarded this facility a grade of A for our inspections rating. This grade is far more impressive than its overall score. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining our inspection scores. One of those factors is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is usually more important than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies end up being quite minor. Unfortunately, we were not able to locate deficiency data for this facility. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is always a good sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

Additionally, we awarded this nursing home a grade of B in our long-term care category. This happens to be one of our higher grades. Long-term care ratings of this caliber generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. After looking at the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 91.57895 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is somewhat less than we anticipated but still a respectable figure. This facility was also able to keep its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 1.41 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

This facility's second worse score was short-term care, where it earned just a D in that category. This is a relatively poor grade. In the category of short-term care, we strive to assess indicators of a facility's rehabilitation. We look at the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. Considering its grade in this area, we were not stunned to find that this facility is well below average in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours offered to its patients based on the figures we looked at. Finally, we considered the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We were surprised to find that it performed better in this area, with 51.4 percent of its residents returning home. This was just about this nursing home's sole highlight in this category.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

This facility's worst category was nursing, which is the last category we assessed. We gave it a lowly F for this category. Despite several decent scores in other areas, this score is still concerning so we wanted to draw your attention to it. The nursing rating considers a number of factors. The most important one is the amount of time nurses spent with residents. This nursing home provided a meager 2.9 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is well below average. This facility also had terrible marks in some of the quality-based measures to pair with its weak nursing hours. We looked at the percent of residents suffering pressure ulcers and we were quite disappointed. This facility was at roughly 1.5 times the national average in this metric.
