Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

Although we did not rate this nursing home highly overall, we want to draw your attention to its nearly flawless health inspections in recent years. We awarded them an impressive grade of A- in this category. Our inspection grades account for a host of factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One key criteria we look at is the number and severity of deficiencies. You should avoid facilities with a bunch of severe deficiencies flagged. This particular nursing home received 5 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: C

One of the other reasons we rated this facility so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing grade. In that area, we gave this nursing home an C. There are a number of criteria included in this grade. Most of the subcategories relate to nurse staffing. This place provides only 2.1 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a somewhat discouraging figure which is well below average. Finally, nursing scores also factor in quality-based metrics, such as preventing major falls. Despite not having the highest total nursing hours, this nursing home actually performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is typically a reliable indicator that a nursing home has quality controls in place. Some falls can be avoided if a facility supplies enough nurses aids to assist its residents.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The third area we assessed is long-term care. In that category, we awarded this nursing home a C. Our long-term care ratings are more meaningful for residents requiring more conventional assistance associated with personal care. On top of considering the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Thankfully, this facility vaccinated 98.703705 percent of its patients, which is an above average figure. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. While it had 2.06 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, its risk adjusted score was better than most nursing homes since it had more complex patients.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Moving on to our fourth area, this nursing home did not perform very well here either. Due to a rock bottom grade of F in short-term care, this is just about as terrible as it gets. Our short-term care ratings are believed to be more critical for patients requiring rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation usually requires more skilled nursing services. This includes not only nursing services, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. With a score in this range in this category, we weren't shocked to find this facility was well below average in several staffing figures we focus on. In fact, it offered far fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other nursing homes. Lastly, we considered the number of residents that returned home from this facility. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 30.1 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.
