Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

This facility's best category grade came in the category of government inspections. In that area, we awarded this facility a B+. It outperformed most facilities in this category. Inspection scores weigh a host of factors found on a facility's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we look at is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with higher scores in this area tend to have few of these severe deficiencies. This particular nursing home received 9 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.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home's short-term care rating ended up being one of its best scores. The nursing home received a grade of B- in this category. Our short-term care grades are presumably more critical for people in need of rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation generally mandates additional skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means not merely nursing, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other types of therapy. In this facility's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than the average facility. The final metric we looked at in this area is the number of residents that ultimately returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home. This figure was below average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

This facility's next most favorable category turned out to be long-term care. In that area, we gave this nursing home a grade of C. In our long-term care grade, we analyze the quantity of care offered by a nursing home, as well as some quality measures. After looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination record. We were disappointed to learn that this facility vaccinated a relatively low 77.114426 percent of its patients against pneumonia. On a more positive note, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

The final category we looked at is nursing. We gave this nursing home a C in this area. The nursing grade is based on a variety of factors. The most heavily weighted variable is the number of hours nurses spend with residents. This place provides only 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This is a somewhat uninspiring figure as it is well below the national average. Finally, although this facility got docked a bit for nursing hours, it actually excelled in a few of our quality-based measures. With fewer than five percent of its patients sustaining pressure ulcers, it did well in this area.
