Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

While we did not rate this nursing home favorably overall, we want to point out its relatively favorable inspections in recent years. We gave it a respectable grade of B+ in this area, which was much better than its overall score. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining these inspection ratings. One of those factors is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some are quite insignificant. While this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were severe based on CMS' scale. A few minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The next best category we gave this nursing home in any category came in the area of short-term care, where we gave it a grade of B-. Our short-term care ratings are critical for residents requiring rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally requires more highly-skilled nursing. This includes a wide scope of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other types of therapy. In this facility's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than the average facility. The hope is always that this does not adversely affect the quality of care. Lastly, we considered the percentage of residents that returned home from this nursing home. We found that 6.2 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was quite a bit below average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

We awarded this facility just a D for our long-term care grade. This is well below average in this category. For long-term care residents, the facility'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 assessing the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination records. We were pleased to learn that this nursing home vaccinated 96.95291 percent of its residents for pneumonia. To our surprise, this place also keeps its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had just 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

The next area we looked at was nursing, which was this nursing home's worst category. We awarded this nursing home a grade of D in that category. In determining a facility's nursing grade, we weigh the number of hours nurses are seeing residents as well as the levels of training of the nurses. This facility averaged just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This is not a very impressive figure. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing scores. This nursing home fared well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.
