Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

While this facility's overall grade was not a highlight, it actually received a very good grade in the category of inspections. In fact, we gave it a grade of B+ for that category, which is one of our better grades. Perhaps the most significant factor we consider in calculating our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. It is typically best to avoid places that have too many severe deficiencies. This particular nursing home received 8 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.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facility's next highest area is its long-term care grade, where it was given a B-. In calculating these long-term care grades, we analyze the facility's personal care services. After we finished looking at the volume of nursing care, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination records. We were optimistic to find that this nursing home vaccinated 97.83784 percent of its residents for pneumonia. This facility was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Another concern is the F this facility received in the area of short-term care. In calculating these short-term care scores, we assess the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The purpose is to create a tool for sizing up the rehabilitation services of nursing homes. Considering its score in this category, we were not stunned to find that this place was well below average in terms of the quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its patients based on the metrics we looked at. Honestly, this was what we expected here. The last item we assessed in this category is the number of residents that returned home from the nursing home. This facility struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 5.1 percent of its patients returning home. This was well below average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

The final category we looked at is nursing, where this facility was given a bottom of the barrel grade in this area also. Sadly, it received an abysmal F for this category, which is obviously very concerning. Our nursing rating weighs many data points, many of which are based on nursing hours. This particular facility provided just 0.2 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This figure is well below average. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing ratings. This nursing home performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these data points to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
