Facility Inspections

Grade: B

While we were not high on this place's overall performance, it actually received 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. Arguably the most significant factor we look at in computing our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. It is generally in your best interest to avoid places that had too many severe deficiencies. 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. In spite of this deficiency, this nursing home still received a relatively positive report.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

We also awarded this facility a grade of B- for our nursing rating. Our nursing score is largely based on a facility's nurse staffing. This place averages 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis, which is not an impressive total. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility actually fared better in some of the quality measures we looked at. It performed well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facility received its third best category grade in the category of long-term care. We awarded this facility a B- in this area, which is a respectable score. Our long-term care grades are crucial for prospective residents looking for non-healthcare services such as personal care. Once we assessed the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination records. Candidly, we were a bit alarmed this facility vaccinated 79.86799 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is significantly lower than the national average. On a more positive note, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Moving on to the next category, this nursing home really didn't perform very well here either. Due to a bottom of the barrel grade of F in short-term care, this is really as bad as it gets. In determining our short-term care grades, we analyze the facility's levels of skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other highly skilled individuals. This rating is frequently a meaningful measure of the nursing home's ability to rehabilitate patients. With its grade in this category, we were not surprised to learn that this nursing home was well below average in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its residents based on the measures we assessed. The final datapoint we considered in this category is the number of patients that eventually returned home from the facility. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 3.1 percent of its residents returning home.
