Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

Although this nursing home's overall score was not a highlight, it did receive a very good grade in the area of inspections. We gave it a B+ for that area, which is one of our better grades. Inspection grades are tied to several pieces of information found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are an important thing to look for on these reports. You should especially avoid nursing homes that have severe deficiencies linked to risks to resident well being. This particular nursing home received 4 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a solid inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.

Grade: D

Turning to the area of long-term care, this nursing home was given just a D in that area. Sadly, this proved to be one of its better grades. In a long-term care setting, the nursing home's primary objective is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. Once we assessed the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination records. We were pleased to learn that this nursing home vaccinated 97.84173 percent of its residents for pneumonia. Surprisingly, this facility also fared well at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 1.35 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

Turning to the area of nursing care, this facility received a grade of just D in this category. Nursing grades are tied to quality and quantity of nursing care. This nursing home provides 2.9 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. To pair with its below average totals in the area of nursing hours per patient, this place had bad marks in several of the quality-based measures we looked at in determining our nursing scores. We looked at the percentage of patients experiencing falls which led to serious injury. This facility was at more than 1.5 times the national average in this statistic.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

This facility's least impressive category was short-term care, which is the final category we analyzed. In this area, we awarded this facility a grade of D. In computing our short-term care ratings, we look at a nursing home's levels of skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other highly trained professionals. This score is considered to be a solid measure of the facility's ability to rehabilitate patients. In this facility's case, we found that it offers less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the typical facility. Lastly, we assessed the number of patients that who were able to eventually return home from this nursing home. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. We found that just 45.5 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was below the national average.
