Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

The main reason this ended up being a decent nursing home is that it earned an elite inspection grade. In fact, its inspection grade was far superior to its overall score. In our inspections category, we gave it a grade of A+. Inspection ratings weigh several factors found on a facility's inspection reports. One key criteria we consider is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with higher grades in this area typically have few of these severe deficiencies. This facility was hit with 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This indicates that CMS didn't consider any of these deficiencies 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-plus

This facility also received a favorable grade in our long-term care category. We gave this nursing home an above average grade of B+ in this area. If you are seeking services other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at long-term care grades. Once we looked at the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination records. This facility vaccinated 91.90283 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is a few points below what we expected but still a reasonably acceptable figure. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

Another strength of this nursing home is its favorable grade in nursing. We gave them one of our better scores in that area, with an impressive grade of D. We looked at the skill-level of nurses at the nursing home, in addition to the quantity of hours those nurses were with residents, in determining our grade in this category. With only 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis, this nursing home's nurse staffing levels were significantly below average. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing grades. This nursing home fared well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these statistics to be indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

This nursing home's least impressive area is short-term care, which is the last area we scored. Unfortunately, we gave it an abysmal F in this category. Despite a few solid scores in other areas, this score is still alarming so we felt obligated to draw your attention to it. Short-term care scores are based in part on a facility's quantity of skilled highly skilled professionals. This includes a vast scope of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, in addition to other forms of therapy. Not surprisingly, we found that this place provides significantly less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than a typical facility. Finally, we considered the number of patients who eventually returned home from this facility. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 2.5 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was well off the national average.
