Facility Inspections

Grade: B

While we were not high on this nursing home overall, we awarded it a B for our inspections rating. This score is far more impressive than the facility's overall grade. Inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This facility was assessed 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This means that the government inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies an immediate threat to patient safety or health. A few minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

This facility also was awarded an impressive long-term care grade. Indeed, we awarded them a grade of B in this area, which is one of our better. Nursing homes that receive this kind of score in long-term care tend to provide consistent around the clock care to make sure patients are well cared for. After we finished assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination statistics. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia is too frequently a life or death condition for nursing home residents so we prefer when a facility does not leave its residents vulnerable. Lastly, we looked at its number of hospitalizations. Here we found that this nursing home had 3.26 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. While this admittedly wasn't as strong as most of its other scores in this area, this number can be skewed for some facilities based on the medical complexity of patients.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Turning to the area of short-term care, this nursing home received just a D in this area. In our short-term care rating, we attempt to create a valuable gauge for rehabilitation. In this process, we look at the facility's levels of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. Based on its score in this category, we were not stunned to learn that this nursing home is well below average in terms of its number of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its residents based on the figures we assessed. Finally, we considered the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. This was not a strength either for this place. We found that just 47.9 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 below average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

The next area we looked at was nursing, is this nursing home's weakest area. We gave this nursing home a grade of D in that category. Our nursing score is based on several components, but the primary one is the number of nurse hours spent with patients. This place offered a meager 3 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This is well below average. Unfortunately, this nursing home also had terrible scores in some of the quality-based metrics to pair with its weak nursing hours. We looked at the percent of patients sustaining pressure ulcers and we were quite disappointed. This nursing home was at roughly 1.5 times the national average in this statistic. This is a bad sign in light of the fact that so many pressure ulcers are preventable with better nursing care. This statistic helped pull down this nursing home's nursing score significantly.
