Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

While this nursing home's overall grade was not bad, it really fared well in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A- for that category, which is one of our highest scores. Inspection ratings are tied to many datapoints located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places that receive favorable grades in this category have very few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these places should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. This particular nursing home received 4 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.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facility's second best category was its nursing grade, where it received a grade of B-. We looked at the levels of nurses employed by the facility, in addition to the quantity of hours the nurses were with patients, in determining our score in this area. This nursing home averages just 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis, which is well below average. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility actually excelled in some of the quality measures we looked at. In fact, it scored well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these areas to be good 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: B-minus

The third highest category we awarded this nursing home in any area came in the area of short-term care, where we gave it a B-. With our short-term care rating, we attempt to craft a sound barometer for rehabilitation. In this process, we look at a nursing home's levels of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. In this place's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than a typical facility. The last statistic we looked at in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the facility and return home. We discovered that just 5.4 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is actually below average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Moving on to our next area, we awarded this facility a grade of D in long-term care. This was the facility's least impressive category score. Long-term care scores in this range generally are a bad sign for the quantity and quality of care provided by nurses and aids. One of the criteria we considered on top of nurse's aid hours was vaccines. Frankly, we were a bit bothered by the fact that this nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccine to only 53.13352 percent of its residents. To our surprise, this place actually fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This is its best feature in this category.
