Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

In addition to being a respectable facility overall, this place also excelled in the category of inspections, where it received an A+. Few nursing homes performed better in this category. These inspection ratings weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these issues by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This particular nursing home received 7 deficiencies on its inspection report. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

This facility also fared well in the area of long-term care. In fact, we awarded it a score of A- in that area, which is one of our highest scores. If you are looking for services other than rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each facility's long-term care scores. This nursing home's vaccination data were not as favorable as its nursing hours data. It administered the pneumonia vaccine to just 22.891565 percent of its residents. We'd love to see some improvement in this area next year. The last datapoint we assessed is its hospitalization rate. Here we found that this nursing home had 1.96 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is close to average in this area.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

Turning to another strength for this facility, it also received an elite nursing grade. We gave this nursing home a grade of D. Our nursing rating features a host of factors. The most important one is the amount of time nurses spend with patients. We do not think quantity of care is the reason for this facility's poor nursing score. With 3.9 hours of nursing care per patient daily, this place actually surpassed the national average. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing grades. This nursing home performed well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

This facility's least impressive category was short-term care, which is the last category we looked at. Sadly, it received an F for this area. Even with a few respectable scores in other areas, this grade is nevertheless alarming so we felt obligated to make a note of it. Short-term care ratings are based in part on a facility's quantity of skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This means a broad scope of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, not to mention other variations of therapy. In this facility's case, we found that it offers fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than a typical facility. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of residents that ultimately returned home from this nursing home. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 42.8 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was well off the national average.
