Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

One of the reasons this is a decent nursing home is that it earned a very favorable inspection grade. In this area, we gave this facility a B+. Our inspection ratings are based on many datapoints located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities that excel in this area typically have few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these places should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. While this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. A few minor deficiencies should not stop you from considering a nursing home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The second highest area we gave this nursing home in any category came in the category of long-term care, where we awarded it a B-. Our long-term care ratings are based in part on the facility's quantity of nursing services. This includes a broad range of personal care services, ranging from help with activities of daily living to routine medical services. After assessing the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination record. Frankly, we were a bit worried that this nursing home vaccinated 86.7052 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which happens to be several points lower than the national average. Nevertheless, this facility also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had just 1.58 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

The next highest grade we gave this nursing home in any area came in the category of nursing, where we gave it a grade of C. The nursing rating considers a number of datapoints. The most important one is the amount of time nurses spent with residents. This nursing home averages just 3.2 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Finally, we look at quality-based statistics, such as the percentage of patients who sustained pressure ulcers and major falls. These statistics are decent indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Moving on to our final area, we awarded this facility a grade of D for short-term care. This is the facility's worst category rating. Our short-term care grades are believed to be most important for individuals needing a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically requires more skilled nursing services. This includes not just nursing, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. Given its grade in this category, we were not surprised to find that this nursing home provided substantially fewer physical therapist hours per resident than most other facilities. The final statistic we considered in this area is the number of residents that ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this area, with just 42.9 percent of its residents returning home. Unfortunately, this was well below the national average.
