Facility Inspections

Grade: A

Although we did not rate this facility highly overall, we want to draw your attention to its nearly flawless health inspections in recent years. We awarded them an impressive grade of A in this category. Inspection ratings weigh a host of factors included in a nursing home's inspection reports. One key criteria we look at is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. You should avoid facilities with too many severe deficiencies flagged. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Despite this deficiency, this was still a relatively positive report.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

This facility received its second most favorable category grade in the category of long-term care. We gave this facility a C in this area, which is a respectable score. Long-term care grades assess a facility's personal care instead of the skilled therapy or medical services that are critical to a skilled nursing facility. On top of assessing the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 72.75862 percent of its patients. This is significantly lower than average. Nevertheless, this nursing home was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 1.52 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

In our next category, we gave this facility an F in the area of short-term care. In determining our short-term care scores, we look at the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our goal is to create a scale for sizing up the rehabilitation services of nursing homes. As you might expect, we discovered that this place provides significantly less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than the average nursing home. Lastly, we considered the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We were surprised to find that it performed better in this area, with 49.3 percent of its patients returning home. This was just about this nursing home's sole highlight in this area.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

The final area we analyzed is nursing. This nursing home received a poor grade of F in that category. The nursing category assesses quite a few subcategories, many of which are tied to nursing hours. With a meager 3.1 hours of nursing care per patient daily, this place's nurse staffing levels were quite a bit below the national average. To go along with its subpar totals in the area of nursing hours per patient, this place also did not fare as well in the quality-based measures we looked at in calculating our nursing ratings. We looked at the percent of patients experiencing major falls and pressure ulcers. This place had more falls and pressure ulcers than the average facility.
