Inspection grades are based on datapoints found on the a nursing home's recent inspections. Places that score well in this area tend to have few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these facilities should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

We also gave this nursing home a decent score in the category of nursing care, with a grade of C. The nursing rating analyzes quite a few datapoints, but the main consideration is the number of nurse hours spent with patients. This facility provided just 0.3 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 place surprisingly excelled in some of the quality measures we looked at. In fact, it performed well in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these areas to be reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care. In some cases, the quality of nursing care is just as important as the quantity of hours of care provided.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The next area we rated was short-term care, ended up being this facility's least impressive category. We gave this facility a grade of D in that area. In computing our short-term care grades, we size up the nursing home's levels of skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists respiratory therapists and other highly trained professionals. This category is typically a meaningful measure of a nursing home's ability to rehabilitate patients. Considering its score in this category, we were not surprised to find that this place is well below average in terms of the quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours offered to its residents based on the measures we looked at. Honestly, this was about what we expected here. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that just 5.1 percent of this facility's patients returned home.
