Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

Although we didn't give this nursing home a good overall score, we actually gave it a strong grade in the area of inspections, where it earned a B+. These inspection grades take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these items by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. 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. In spite of this deficiency, this place still received a relatively favorable inspection report.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

We awarded this facility a respectable grade in the area of nursing as well, with a grade of B-. Nursing ratings are largely tied to a facility's nurse staffing. This place provides 3.2 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Finally, nursing ratings also consider quality-based measures, such as preventing major falls. Despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours, this place performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is usually a reliable indicator that a place has quality controls in place. Some falls could be avoided if a facility supplies enough nurses to assist its patients.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

We awarded this nursing home just a D for our long-term care score. This is not a score to write home about. Long-term care scores in this range generally are a bad sign for the quantity and quality of care provided by nurses and aids, as well as the levels of routine medical care available. After looking at the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination data. We were disappointed to learn that this facility vaccinated just 84.63158 percent of its patients against pneumonia. To our surprise, this nursing home was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 1.19 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home had less hospitalizations than most nursing homes. This is its best feature in this category.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Switching gears to our final area, this facility really did not perform well in this category either. Due to a very poor grade of F in short-term care, this is about as as uninspiring as it gets. In determining our short-term care ratings, we look at the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The goal is to create a scale for sizing up the rehabilitation services of various nursing homes. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. The last item we assessed in this area is the percentage of patients that ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home. This facility struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 42.9 percent of its patients returning home.
