Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

While this nursing home received a decent overall grade, its inspections rating is notably better than its overall grade. Due to a strong inspection report this year, it received one of our better scores in that category with a B+. Perhaps the most important factor we consider in determining our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes with better grades in this category most likely avoided the more severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. This facility was assessed 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be severe. This indicates that CMS did not deem any of these deficiencies to cause an immediate threat to patient health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies should not lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facility's short-term care rating ended up being one of its more favorable features. The facility was given a grade of B- in this category. In our short-term care rating, we endeavor to create a meaningful barometer for rehabilitation. In this process, we look at the facility's levels of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. Unfortunately, we found that this nursing home provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. Finally, we looked at the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 5.7 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most facilities, closer to half of their patients are able to return home so this figure is below average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

We also awarded this nursing home a middle of the pack grade in the area of long-term care, where we gave it a grade of C. In a long-term care environment, the primary goal is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. Once we finished looking at the amount of care provided by nurses, we turned to the facility's vaccination data. Frankly, we were a bit worried that this nursing home vaccinated a relatively low 75.32468 percent of its residents for pneumonia. Fortunately, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

The next area we rated was nursing, which turned out to be a low point for this nursing home. We gave this facility a grade of just D in the area of nursing. We assessed the skill-level of nurses working for the nursing home, in addition to the quantity of time those nurses spent with patients, in computing our grade in this area. This facility offered only 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing ratings. This facility fared well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.
