Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

While we were not complementary of this nursing home'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 B+. Our inspection grades are based on datapoints located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are an important thing to look for on these reports. You should especially avoid facilities with severe deficiencies associated with endangerment of patients. Although this facility had some deficiencies on its report, none of them were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. A few minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

Another one of this nursing home's higher category scores was in the category of short-term care. In that category, we gave this nursing home a B. With our short-term care rating, we endeavor to forge a valuable measure for rehabilitation services. In this process, we look at a nursing home's level of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. However, based on the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 6.1 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Another unfortunate development is the F this nursing home was given in the category of long-term care. Facilities that don't fare well in this category often do not provide as much nursing care and also may be lagging in some of the areas of routine healthcare services we assessed. On top of looking at the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. Candidly, we were a bit bothered by the fact that this facility vaccinated a relatively low 72.79597 percent of its patients. To our surprise, this facility was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.08 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home had fewer hospitalizations than most nursing homes. This is its best feature in this category.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

The next category we assessed is nursing, where this nursing home received a very poor grade in this category also. Sadly, it received an abysmal F for this category, which is obviously very concerning. We weighed the skill-level of nurses at the facility, as well as the quantity of hours the nurses spent with patients, in determining our score in this area. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing ratings. This facility fared well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.
