Facility Inspections

Grade: A

To go along with its relatively modest overall grade, we awarded this nursing home an A for its inspection grade. This score is far more impressive than its overall rating. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining our inspection grades. One critical factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some can be relatively insignificant. This place was assessed 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered severe. This means that CMS didn't deem any of these deficiencies to be an immediate risk to resident health or safety. A couple of minor deficiencies should not lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

Another one of this nursing home's more favorable category scores was in the area of short-term care. In that area, we awarded this nursing home a B. In calculating our short-term care ratings, we size up the nursing home's levels of highly skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other licensed professionals. This score is considered to be a fair measure of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. Unfortunately, it does not appear that this nursing home provided information on registered nurse or physical therapist staffing. The final measure we considered in this category is the number of patients who were able to leave the facility and return home. We found that 6.8 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Moving on to the category of long-term care, this facility was awarded just a D in this area. For prospective patients seeking a permanent residence as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care grades are a key measure. On top of looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Fortunately, this facility administered the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents, which is a very solid total. To our surprise, this facility also fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Sadly, a few of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

Moving on to the next category, this nursing home did not perform well. Due to a bottom of the barrel grade of F in nursing, this is this facility's weakest category. The nursing grade includes a host of subcategories. The most heavily weighted variable is the number of hours nurses spent with patients. With a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient daily, this facility's nurse staffing levels were significantly below average. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing scores. This place performed well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
