Facility Inspections

Grade: A

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 highest scores. These inspection ratings take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these factors by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Although this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. We should note that deficiency-free inspections are uncommon in the industry.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

In addition, we also would like to point out that this nursing home was given impressive long-term care marks this year. We gave them one of our more impressive grades in that category, with a grade of B. This turned out to be the nursing home's second strongest score. For long-term care residents, the nursing home's primary goal is to keep patients healthy and safe. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. After considering the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination data. This facility vaccinated 74.01961 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is somewhat lower than we expected but still a decent percentage. Although its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we had hoped, we were pleased to find nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facility's next best category grade came in the area of nursing. In that category, we gave this nursing home a grade of B-. We scrutinized the qualifications of nurses working for the facility, in addition to the number of hours those nurses spent with residents, in computing our grade in this category. This nursing home provides only 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a somewhat concerning figure which is well below average. Finally, nursing ratings also factor in quality-based assessments, such as preventing major falls. Despite not having the highest total nursing hours per resident, this facility actually performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is generally a good indicator that a facility has quality controls in place. Many falls can be avoided if a nursing home provides enough nurses aids to assist its residents.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The final area we analyzed was short-term care. We awarded this facility a D in the area of short-term care, rendering this its least impressive area. In calculating our short-term care grades, we size up a nursing home's levels of skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists respiratory therapists and other highly skilled individuals. This score is typically a fair assessment of a facility's rehabilitation services. Unfortunately, this nursing home 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. Lastly, we considered the number of residents who ultimately were able to return home from this facility. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.
