Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

Although we gave this facility a terrible overall grade, we awarded it a B- for our inspections rating. In fact, the facility received very impressive inspection report this year. Inspection ratings weigh several factors, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these factors by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This particular nursing home received 8 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: B-minus

One of the other reasons we graded this nursing home so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing score. Nursing proved to be its second best category grade. In that area, we awarded this nursing home an B-. Nursing ratings are tied to quantity of nursing care available. This nursing home averages just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Lastly, while this facility got docked a bit for its nursing hours, it excelled in some of our quality measures. With fewer than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it did remarkably well in this subcategory.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

We awarded this nursing home a grade of just D for our short-term care score. This is well below average in this category. Our short-term care grades are important for people in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically requires more highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means a vast scope of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Not surprisingly, we found that this place offers substantially less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than a typical facility. The last datapoint we looked at in this area is the percentage of residents who eventually returned home from the facility. This facility struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 4.5 percent of its residents returning home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The next area we rated is long-term care, in which this facility was given a bottom of the barrel grade in this category also. Unfortunately, we gave it an F in this category, which is obviously a major concern. Long-term care ratings of this caliber generally are a bad sign for the quantity and quality of care provided by nurses and aids. Once we assessed the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination record. We were disappointed to learn that this facility vaccinated only 27.068726 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Surprisingly, this facility was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility had fewer hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. This is its best score in this category.
