Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

While we did not rate this facility favorably overall, we want to point out its relatively favorable government inspections in recent years. We gave it a B+ in this area, which was much better than its overall grade. Our inspection scores are tied to many items located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are a key item to look for on these inspections. You should especially avoid nursing homes that have severe deficiencies linked to endangerment of patients. This facility was hit with 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be severe. This tells you that the inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies to cause an immediate risk to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is always a good sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

This nursing home also was awarded a positive long-term care grade. In fact, we gave them a grade of B in this category, which happens to be one of our more favorable scores. When nursing homes receive this kind of score in long-term care it is a good sign for resident care and suggests that the nursing home is well-staffed with nurses aids. Once we looked at the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This facility vaccinated 97.05882 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Vaccines are vital to keeping residents out of the hospital. Lastly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The third area we analyzed is short-term care, where this nursing home was given a C in this category. In our short-term care score, we endeavor to forge a meaningful gauge for rehabilitation. In this process, we assess the facility's level of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. Unfortunately, this place was below average in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its residents based on the metrics we assessed. The important question is whether this adversely impacted quality of care. The final metric we assessed in this area is the number of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We discovered that just 5 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is actually below average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

Switching gears to the last area, this nursing home did not perform well in this area either. With a very poor grade of F in nursing, this is about as bad as it gets. The nursing score consists of a handful of data points, however, the most important one is the number of nurse hours per patient per week. With just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis, this nursing home's nurse staffing levels were quite a bit below the national average. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing scores. This place performed well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
