Facility Inspections

Grade: B

While we did not rate this nursing home favorably overall, we want to point out its relatively solid inspections in recent years. We gave it a respectable grade of B in this category, which was much better than its overall grade. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing these inspection scores. One critical factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some end up being relatively minor. This nursing home was assessed 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This indicates that CMS didn't consider any of the deficiencies an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

We also ended up giving this facility a fairly respectable grade in the area of nursing, where it received a grade of B-. We analyzed the skill-level of nurses working for the facility, in addition to the quantity of time those nurses worked with residents, in determining our grade in this category. This place provides only 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This is a somewhat alarming figure which is well below the national average. Lastly, nursing ratings also consider quality-based metrics, such as preventing major falls. Despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours, this facility performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is typically a reliable indicator that a facility has sufficient quality controls in place. Many falls could be avoided if a facility supplies enough nurses to assist its residents.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

We also awarded this facility a middle of the pack score in the category of short-term care, where it received a grade of C. Our short-term care grades are based in part on the facility's quantity of skilled highly skilled professionals. This includes a wide scope of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other types of 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 measures we assessed. The real question is whether this adversely affected quality of care. The final statistic we considered in this area is the number of patients that who were able to eventually return home from the nursing home. We found that just 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The next category we rated is long-term care, turned out to be this facility's worst area. We gave this nursing home a grade of D in this area. Facilities that do not fare well in long-term care often don't provide as much nursing care and also may be struggling in some of the areas of routine personal care we assessed. Once we finished looking at the amount of care provided by nurses, we turned to the facility's vaccination statistics. Frankly, we were a bit worried that this facility vaccinated only 80.995476 percent of its residents against pneumonia. To our surprise, this place was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home had fewer hospitalizations than many nursing homes. This was its best feature in this category.
