Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

While this facility's overall grade was not bad, it really fared well in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A+ for that category, which is one of our best scores. Arguably the most critical factor we consider in determining our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes with better grades in this area most likely avoided the most severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. This nursing home was assessed 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This tells you that the inspectors didn't consider any of these deficiencies to pose an immediate risk to resident 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-plus

This nursing home also received a positive long-term care score. In fact, we awarded them a grade of B+ in that category, which is one of our more favorable scores. When facilities receive this kind of grade in long-term care it is usually a good sign for patient care and indicates that the place is well-staffed with nurses and aids. After we finished looking at the volume of care provided by nurses, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination record. This nursing home vaccinated 99.72452 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia sadly can be a deadly illness for nursing home patients so we strongly prefer when a nursing home doesn't roll the dice on this issue. Finally, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

Next, we looked at the nursing category where we gave this nursing home an F. This is certainly not one of this facility's better areas. Our nursing score looks at the facility's nurse staffing levels. We consider both the levels of skill of those nurses and the amount of time spent with residents. This place averaged only 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing scores. This facility fared well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these areas to be indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The final category we graded was short-term care. It received a lowly F for this category, which is a bottom of the barrel grade. This is certainly a significant concern. Short-term care scores are based in part on the facility's quantity of skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This includes a vast range of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, in addition to other types of therapy. Considering its grade in this area, we were not surprised to learn that this facility is well below average in terms of the number of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its residents based on the data we assessed. Frankly, this was what we expected here. The final datapoint we looked at in this area is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 4.5 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these subpar statistics was damning for this facility's short-term care grade.
