Facility Inspections

Grade: A

While we were fairly low on this nursing home overall, we awarded it an A for our inspections rating. This score is significantly more impressive than the nursing home's overall grade. Inspection scores are based on items 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 facilities with severe deficiencies linked to endangerment of patients. This facility was assessed 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This indicates that the government inspectors did not consider any of these deficiencies to pose an imminent risk to resident health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

We awarded this facility just a D for our short-term care rating and that actually wound up as its next most respectable category. In our short-term care assessment, we strive to forge a fair barometer for rehabilitation. In doing so, we assess the nursing home's levels of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. Considering its grade in this category, we weren't stunned to learn that this place was well below average in terms of its number of physical therapy and registered nurse hours offered to its residents based on the measures we assessed. The final datapoint we considered in this category is the number of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 5.1 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these subpar statistics doomed this facility's short-term care grade.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

We awarded this facility just a D for our long-term care score. This is not an impressive grade. Nursing homes that do not fare well in this category typically are not as well-staffed and are lagging in a few of the areas of routine healthcare services we assessed. After looking at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination statistics. We were concerned by the fact that this facility vaccinated a relatively low 88.03828 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Surprisingly, this facility was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home has fewer hospitalizations than many nursing homes. This was its best score in this category.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

The final category we rated was nursing. It received a lowly F in this category, which is a poor score. Our nursing rating looks at the nursing home's nurse staffing levels. We factor in both the levels of skill of those nurses and the quantity of hours spent with residents. This nursing home averaged only 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing ratings. This place fared well in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
