Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

Although we didn't grade this nursing home favorably overall, we actually gave it an excellent score in the area of inspections, where it received an A-. Inspection ratings are tied to many datapoints found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are a key thing to look for on these reports. You should especially avoid facilities that have severe deficiencies linked to risks to resident well being. This facility was assessed 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This indicates that CMS didn't deem any of these deficiencies an imminent risk to patient health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

This facility's next highest area was short-term care. In that area, we awarded this facility a C. In the area of short-term care, we endeavor to qualify measures of a facility's rehabilitation. We analyze the facility's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. Unfortunately, this place was below average in terms of its level of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its residents based on the metrics we assessed. The important question is whether this also impacted quality of care. The final statistic we looked at in this category is the percentage of residents that were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that just 0 percent of this facility's patients returned home. This figure was below average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

Turning to the area of nursing care, this facility received a grade of just D in this category. When calculating our nursing scores, we analyze both staffing levels and the skill levels of the nurses. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing grades. This nursing home fared well when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The final category we assessed was long-term care, where this nursing home was given a bottom of the barrel grade in this area also. It received an F in this category, which is obviously a major concern. In a long-term care environment, the facility's primary objective is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. On top of considering the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 98.5646 percent of its residents. To our surprise, this place was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Sadly, a few of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.
