Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

Although we graded this facility incredibly poorly overall, it earned a very impressive inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our better grades in that category with a B+. Inspection grades are tied to several pieces of information located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are a key item to look for on these inspections. Most importantly, you should avoid nursing homes that have severe deficiencies associated with risks to resident well being. This facility was assessed 12 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be major deficiencies. This means that the inspectors did not consider any of these deficiencies to create an immediate risk to patient health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Unfortunately, this nursing home's next most favorable category was short-term care. However, with a D in this area, it still performed somewhat poorly. Our short-term care scores are likely more critical for those requiring rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation generally utilizes additional highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes not only nursing services, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Given its poor rating in this area, we weren't stunned to find that this place provides significantly fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than most other nursing homes. The last statistic we looked at in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 4.7 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these subpar metrics doomed this facility's short-term care score.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

We also wanted to draw your attention to this facility's poor nursing grade where it received an F. Our nursing score weighs quite a few factors, many of which are based on levels of nurse staffing. This nursing home averaged just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This is not a very impressive figure. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be reliable measures of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The last category we scored is long-term care. It received an F in this area, which is a bottom of the barrel score. Long-term care ratings of this caliber generally are a bad sign for the quantity and quality of care provided by nurses and aids, as well as the levels of routine medical care available. In addition to considering the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 92.35474 percent of its patients. This is slightly below what we were hoping for but still a respectable percentage. Surprisingly, this place was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility has fewer hospitalizations than the average nursing home. This is its best score in this category.
