Facility Inspections

Grade: A

Although we didn't rate this facility favorably overall, we actually gave it an excellent grade in the area of inspections, where it received an A. These inspection scores weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these items by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Fortunately, although this place had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are found in categories G through L. This means the inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home's long-term care rating is one of its more favorable scores. The facility was awarded a B- in this area. In determining our long-term care grades, we assess the assistance with daily living offered to the nursing home's patients. Once we looked at the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination record. We were pleased to find that this facility vaccinated 99.53917 percent of its residents for pneumonia. This place keeps its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

Unfortunately, this facility only received a grade of D for its nursing grade, which was actually one of its better category grades. Nursing scores are mostly associated with the facility's nurse staffing. This nursing home averaged a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This is not a very impressive figure. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing ratings. This nursing home performed well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The last category we rated was short-term care. This nursing home was given a rock bottom grade of F in this area. In determining our short-term care ratings, we look at a nursing home's levels of skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other highly trained professionals. This grade is frequently a fair assessment of a facility's rehabilitation. Not surprisingly, we discovered that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than the typical nursing home. Lastly, we looked at the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This was not a strength for this nursing home. We found that just 3.6 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home. At most nursing homes, around half of their residents are able to return home so this is well below average.
