Facility Inspections

Grade: A

While we were fairly low on this facility overall, we awarded it a grade of A for our inspections rating. This score is significantly more impressive than the nursing home's overall grade. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating our inspection grades. One critical factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some end up being quite minor. This particular nursing home received 4 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: C

We also gave this facility a middle of the road score in the category of short-term care, where we awarded it a grade of C. In the area of short-term care, we strive to assess indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We analyze the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and various therapists. Unfortunately, we found that this nursing home provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other nursing homes. The more important thing is determining what effect this had on the quality of care. The final item we looked at in this category is the percentage of residents that ultimately returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home. Unfortunately, this was below average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

We gave this facility a grade of just D for our long-term care score. This is not a score to write home about. Nursing homes that don't fare well in long-term care typically aren't as well-staffed and are lagging in a few of the areas of routine medical care we assessed. One of the factors we considered after nursing hours was vaccines. Candidly, we were a bit worried that this nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccine to a relatively low 84.53609 percent of its patients. To our surprise, this place was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility has less hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. This is its best feature in this category.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

Turning to the fourth area, this nursing home really didn't fare very well in this category either. With an abysmal grade of F in nursing, this is about as as uninspiring as it gets. Our nursing grade is primarily based on the nursing home's nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.2 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing ratings. This facility performed well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these data points to be indicators of the quality of nursing care.
