Facility Inspections

Grade: A

Although we didn't rate this nursing home favorably overall, we actually gave it an excellent score in the area of inspections, where it earned an A. Perhaps the most critical factor we consider in calculating our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. It is generally in your best interest to avoid places that have too many severe deficiencies. Fortunately, although this facility had a few minor dings on its report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G through L. This tells you that CMS didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is always a good sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

Additionally, we also wanted to note that this facility was awarded strong long-term care marks in this assessment. We awarded them one of our more favorable scores in this area, with a B. This turned out to be the facility's second highest score. Long-term care ratings in this range generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. On top of considering the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 98.72123 percent of its residents, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia sadly is often a life or death condition for nursing home residents so we strongly prefer when a facility doesn't leave its residents vulnerable. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

This nursing home wound up receiving a a very poor score in our short-term care area. It received a lowly F in this area. Our short-term care ratings are critical for prospective residents seeking rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually mandates more skilled nursing services. This includes a broad range of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Not surprisingly, we learned that this place offers substantially less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the typical facility. The last datapoint we assessed in this area is the number of patients that ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home. This facility struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 4.2 percent of its residents returning home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

The next area we looked at is nursing. This facility was given a very poor grade of F in that area. Our nursing score is primarily based on the facility's nurse staffing. With a meager 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day, this facility's nurse staffing levels were well below the national average. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing ratings. This nursing home performed well in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these statistics to be measures of the quality of nursing care.
