Facility Inspections

Grade: B

Although we were not high on this place overall, we awarded it a B for our inspections category. This score is much more impressive than the nursing home's overall grade. Inspection ratings are based on several datapoints located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are a key thing to look for on these reports. You should especially avoid facilities that have severe deficiencies associated with endangerment of patients. Amazingly, this was one of the few nursing homes in the country that had no deficiencies whatsoever on its inspection report. This is very impressive. Not having any deficiencies proved to be this place's best achievement.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

We awarded this facility a respectable grade in the area of nursing as well, with a grade of B-. Our nursing rating is primarily associated with a facility's level of nurse staffing. This facility provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this nursing home actually excelled in some of the quality measures we assessed. It performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these areas to be indicators of the quality of nursing care. In some cases, the quality of nursing care is as important as the number of hours of care offered.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

This facility's second lowest score was short-term care, where it earned just a D in that category. This is a relatively poor score. Our short-term care scores are likely more meaningful for individuals requiring rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation usually requires more skilled nursing services. This means not merely nursing services, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. With a score of this caliber for this area, we were not stunned to find this facility was below average in several staffing figures we looked at. The facility provided significantly fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than most facilities. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of patients that were able to return home from this nursing home. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 5.7 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The last category we assessed is long-term care. This facility was given a bottom of the barrel grade of F in that area. Facilities that do not fare well in this category typically aren't as well-staffed and are lagging in a few of the areas of routine personal care we assessed. Once we looked at the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination record. We were disappointed to learn that this facility vaccinated just 82.75862 percent of its patients for pneumonia. To our surprise, this facility was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home had less hospitalizations than the average nursing home. This is its best score in this category.
