Facility Inspections

Grade: A

While we were not high on this facility's overall grade, it received a very impressive inspection report this year. In fact, it received an excellent inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our highest scores in that category with an A. Perhaps the most critical factor we look at in determining our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's recent inspection reports. It is typically best to avoid facilities that have a long list of severe deficiencies. This place was hit with 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This indicates that CMS didn't deem any of these deficiencies an immediate risk to patient safety or health. A few minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

One of the other reasons we rated this nursing home so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing score. This turned out to be its second best category grade. In that area, we awarded this facility a grade of C. When calculating a nursing home's nursing score, we weigh the number of hours nurses are seeing patients as well as the levels of training of the nurses. This nursing home averages 2.1 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis, which is well below average. Lastly, despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours per resident, this nursing home actually performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is generally a good indicator that a facility has quality controls in place.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

This nursing home's second lowest score was long-term care, where it earned a grade of just D in that category. This is a well below average grade. In a long-term care setting, the primary objective is to keep patients healthy and safe. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. Once we concluded our assessment of the volume of nursing care, we then looked at the facility's vaccination records. We were pleased to discover that this nursing home vaccinated 97.63314 percent of its patients against pneumonia. We were far less impressed with its hospitalization rate. We found that this nursing home had 4.55 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is more than twice the national average. This is certainly a concerning statistic.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

This nursing home's least impressive category was short-term care, which is the last category we assessed. For this area, we awarded this facility a grade of just D. Short-term care ratings are critical for people seeking rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually utilizes additional skilled nursing services. This means a vast spectrum of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. In this facility's case, we found that it provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than the average facility. The final measure we looked at in this category is the number of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 40.6 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these poor metrics was damning for this nursing home's short-term care score.
