Facility Inspections

Grade: B

While we were not high on this nursing home's overall performance, it did receive an impressive inspection report this year with few dings from the applicable government inspectors. As a result, it received one of our better grades in that area with a grade of B. Our inspection grades are based on many pieces of information found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are an important thing to look for on these inspections. You should especially avoid nursing homes that have severe deficiencies linked to endangerment of patients. This nursing home was assessed 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This tells you that the government inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies an immediate risk to resident safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facility's second best category ended up being short-term care. In that area, we awarded this facility a grade of B-. In crafting our short-term care ratings, we look at the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The objective is to create a measure for comparing the rehabilitation services of nursing homes. Unfortunately, we found that this facility provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other nursing homes. The tricky part is determining what effect this had on the quality of care. The last measure we assessed in this category is the percentage of patients that ultimately returned home from the facility. We found that just 5.1 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home actually received a decent grade in the area of nursing as well. We awarded it a grade of B- for that category, which is not a bad score. Nursing ratings are heavily correlated with quantity of nursing care available. This nursing home provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This is a relatively low total compared to most other nursing homes. Lastly, despite not having the highest total nursing hours per resident, this nursing home actually performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is often a reliable indicator that a place has sufficient quality controls in place.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Turning to the next area, this nursing home did not fare well in this category either. With a rock bottom grade of F in long-term care, this is about as terrible as it gets. Facilities that do not score well in long-term care often do not provide as much nursing care and also may be struggling in some of the areas of routine medical care we looked at. Once we finished looking at the amount of nursing care, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination data. Candidly, we were a bit worried that this nursing home vaccinated only 82.90322 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Surprisingly, this place was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home has less hospitalizations than the average nursing home. This was its best score in this category.
