Facility Inspections

Grade: A

While we were not high on this nursing home's overall score, it received a very impressive inspection report this year. In fact, it received a nearly flawless inspection report this year. As a result, it earned one of our highest scores in that category with an A. These inspection grades take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can find more information about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this place had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. A few minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

This nursing home was given its next best category score in the category of short-term care. We awarded this nursing home a grade of C in this category, which is a reasonably acceptable grade. Short-term care scores are important for individuals in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally mandates more skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means a wide spectrum of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. We were surprised to find that this nursing home was below average in the two key staffing areas we assessed. In fact, it supplied fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other nursing homes. The last measure we looked at in this area is the number of patients that who were able to eventually return home from the nursing home. We found that just 5.7 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home. Unfortunately, this was below average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Another unfortunate development was the F this nursing home received in the category of long-term care. Facilities that do not fare well in long-term care often do not provide as much nursing care and also may be lagging in some of the areas of routine healthcare services we looked at. Once we assessed the volume of nursing care, we turned to the facility's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 93.22034 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Surprisingly, this place was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility had less hospitalizations than many nursing homes. This is its best feature in this category.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

The next category we scored is nursing, where this facility was given a poor score here also. Sadly, it received an F in this category, which is obviously somewhat alarming. The nursing score features many data points. The most important one is the number of hours nurses spent with patients. This nursing home offered 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-based metrics in computing our nursing scores. This nursing home performed well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these statistics to be reliable measures of the quality of nursing care.
