Facility Inspections

Grade: B

While we graded this facility incredibly poorly overall, it actually earned a very impressive inspection report this year. As a result, it earned one of our more favorable scores in that category with a B. Inspection ratings are based on several datapoints located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are an important thing to look for on these reports. Most importantly, you should avoid nursing homes that have severe deficiencies associated with endangerment of patients. This particular nursing home received 2 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.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

We were also surprised to find that this facility received a decent nursing grade this year. We gave it a grade of C in that category. Our nursing score is primarily tied to a facility's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility excelled in some of the quality-based metrics we looked at. It scored well when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Another issue was the F this facility was given in the category of long-term care. In a long-term care setting, the primary objective is to maintain patients' quality of life and keep them safe. After assessing the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination records. We were optimistic to find that this nursing home vaccinated 96.16859 percent of its residents for pneumonia. Surprisingly, this facility also fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The last area we scored is short-term care. Sadly, it received a lowly F in this category, which is an abysmal grade. Our short-term care grades are based in part on a facility's quantity of highly-skilled highly skilled professionals. This includes a wide spectrum of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. As you might expect, we discovered that this place provides substantially less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than the average nursing home. Lastly, we looked at the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This was not a strength for this nursing home. We found that just 4.3 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home. At most nursing homes, around half of their patients are able to return home so this is well below average.
