Facility Inspections

Grade: B

While we didn't give this facility a good overall grade, we did give it a strong grade in the area of inspections, where it earned a B. Our inspection grades are tied to datapoints found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are a key thing to look for on these reports. Most importantly, you should avoid nursing homes with severe deficiencies associated with risks to resident well being. This place was hit with 6 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This tells you that the government inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies to cause an immediate risk to resident health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

We also awarded this facility a solid grade in the area of long-term care, with a B-. Long-term care grades assess a nursing home's assistance with daily living instead of the skilled therapy or healthcare services that are critical to a skilled nursing facility. One of the factors we considered on top of nurse's aid hours is vaccinations. Fortunately, this facility provided the pneumonia vaccination to 100 percent of its residents. This facility keeps its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

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 score assesses several datapoints, however, the paramount one is the number of nurse hours spent with patients. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Lastly, although this nursing home got docked a bit for its nursing hours per resident, it excelled in a few of our quality metrics. With fewer than five percent of its residents suffering from pressure ulcers, it performed well in this statistic.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The next area we rated was short-term care. This facility was given a rock bottom grade of F in this area. In forming our short-term care grades, we analyze the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our goal is to create a barometer for comparing the rehabilitation services of different facilities. Not surprisingly, we learned that this place offers substantially less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than the average facility. Finally, we looked at the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This definitely was not a strength for this nursing home. We found that just 4 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home. At most nursing homes, around half of their residents are able to return home so this is well below average.
