Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

While this nursing home's overall grade was not bad, it really fared well in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A+ for that category, which is one of our highest scores. Our inspection ratings are tied to many items located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities that excel in this area have few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these places generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. While this place had a few minor dings on its inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you that the government inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A few minor deficiencies shouldn't stop you from considering a nursing home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

We also awarded this nursing home a middle of the pack score in the area of long-term care, with a grade of B-. For prospective residents looking for a permanent residence rather than rehabilitation, long-term care grades are a key measure. In addition to looking at the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home provided the vaccine to 95.5102 percent of its residents. The last datapoint we looked at was the facility's hospitalization rate. We found that this facility had 2.99 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. While this figure is somewhat concerning, this number may be skewed for some nursing homes based on the preexisting medical conditions of patients.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Unfortunately, this nursing home only received a D for its short-term care rating, which is well below average in this category. With our short-term care grade, we try to craft a valuable gauge for rehabilitation services. In this process, we analyze a nursing home's offerings of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. With its score in this category, we were not stunned to find that this place was well below average in terms of the number of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its patients based on the metrics we assessed. Frankly, this was about what we expected to find. The last datapoint we considered in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. It performed better in this area, with 54.2 percent of its patients returning home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

The next area we looked at is nursing. Sadly, it received a lowly F in this category, which is a poor grade. This is certainly a major disappointment. Our nursing rating is based on numerous factors. The most heavily weighted one is the amount of time nurses spend with patients. This nursing home provides 3.7 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is slightly below average. Unfortunately, this place also had terrible scores in several of the quality-based metrics to go along with its low nursing hours. We looked at the percent of patients sustaining pressure ulcers. This facility was at more than double the national average in this datapoint.
