Facility Inspections

Grade: B

Although we were not complementary of this place's overall performance, it actually received an impressive inspection report this year with few dings from the applicable government inspectors. As a result, it received one of our better grades in that area with a B. Inspection grades weigh a host of factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we look at is the number and severity of deficiencies. You should avoid places with a bunch of severe deficiencies flagged. This place received 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This tells you that the government inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies to create an immediate threat to patient health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

We also awarded this facility a grade of C for our nursing rating. Our nursing rating is primarily associated with the facility's nurse staffing. This facility provides 0.2 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Lastly, despite not having the highest total nursing hours, this facility performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is typically an indicator that a facility has sufficient quality controls in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

We awarded this nursing home just a D for our short-term care score. This is well below average in this category. In determining our short-term care ratings, we assess the facility's levels of skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists respiratory therapists and other highly skilled individuals. This grade is typically a useful measure of the facility's rehabilitation. With a grade in this range for this area, we weren't shocked to learn that this place was well below average in the two key staffing areas we focus on. The nursing home offered significantly fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other nursing homes. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that just 0 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The last area we graded was long-term care, ended up being this nursing home's worst area. We awarded this nursing home a D in that area. When nursing homes receive this type of grade in this category it is typically a bad sign for patient care and it may indicate that the place is not as well-staffed. On top of looking at the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to only 65.28302 percent of its patients, which is slightly concerning. Surprisingly, this place was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home has less hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. This was its best feature in this category.
