Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

While we didn't rate this nursing home favorably overall, we want to point out its relatively favorable short-term care rating. We gave it a respectable grade of B in this area, which was much better than its overall grade. In computing our short-term care ratings, we size up a nursing home's levels of highly skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other licensed professionals. This score is more often than not a reliable assessment of the nursing home's ability to rehabilitate patients. Unfortunately, it does not appear that this facility submitted data regarding its registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. Finally, we assessed the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 6 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

We were also pleasantly surprised to award this nursing home a relatively favorable government inspection rating as well. We gave it a respectable grade of B- in this category, which was much better than its overall score. Our inspection scores are based on pieces of information located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are an important item to look for on these inspections. Severe deficiencies indicate a threat to patient safety. 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.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Sadly, this facility's next highest category is long-term care. Nevertheless, with a grade of D in this category, it still fared relatively badly. For prospective residents in need of a permanent residence rather than rehabilitation, long-term care is a very important category. On top of considering the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. Fortunately, this nursing home administered the vaccine to 98.73817 percent of its patients, which is an above average datapoint. Surprisingly, this nursing home also keeps its residents out of the hospital. It had just 0.03 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Sadly, some of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

Turning to the last category, this nursing home didn't fare well in this area either. With an abysmal grade of F in nursing, this is about as as uninspiring as it gets. Our nursing score focuses on the nursing home's nurse staffing levels. We consider both the levels of training of those nurses and the number of hours spent with patients. This facility offered just 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This is well below average. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing scores. This place performed well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
