Facility Inspections

Grade: A

To go along with its decent overall score, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A for its inspection grade. This score is far better than the facility's overall rating. Our inspection grades account for a host of factors included in a facility's inspection report. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Places with better grades in this area tend to have very few of these severe deficiencies. This place received 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This means that the inspectors did not deem any of these deficiencies to pose an imminent risk to patient health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies shouldn't stop you from considering a nursing home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

One of this nursing home's better category scores came in the area of long-term care. This proved to be its second most favorable category. In that category, we awarded this nursing home a grade of B-. Long-term care scores are essential for individuals needing non-healthcare services such as personal care. Once we assessed the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination statistics. We were a bit alarmed this nursing home vaccinated 80.42328 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is several points less than average. Fortunately, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

The next highest grade we gave this nursing home in any area came in the category of nursing, where we gave it a grade of C. There are many subcategories included in this grade. Most of these subcategories relate to the quantity and quality of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides only 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is a somewhat discouraging figure as it is well below average. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures. Although this nursing home got dinged a bit for its nursing hours, it actually excelled in some of these quality metrics. With less than five percent of its patients experiencing pressure ulcers, it performed very well in this statistic. This can be an indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can often be avoided by providing better nursing care, such as having a policy of moving a resident more often.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The final category we rated is short-term care, ended up being this nursing home's least impressive area. We gave this facility a grade of D in this area. With our short-term care category, we seek to craft a valuable barometer for rehabilitation. In doing so, we analyze the facility's level of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. Considering its score in this area, we weren't stunned to learn that this facility was well below average in terms of the quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its patients based on the metrics we looked at. The final item we looked at in this category is the number of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 4.2 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these poor statistics sunk this facility's short-term care grade.
