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

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 90.87453 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is a few points below what we expected but still a reasonably acceptable figure. While its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we like to see, we were pleased to find nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

Moving on to another strength for this facility, it also received an elite nursing score. We gave this nursing home a grade of D. When determining our nursing scores, we factor in both the number of hours nurses spend with residents and the skill levels of those nurses. This place provided only 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident each day. 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.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Turning to the last category, this nursing home really didn't perform very well. Due to an abysmal grade of F in short-term care, this was its poorest grade. Our short-term care grade is typically employed to gauge a facility's performance with rehabilitation. To provide high-end rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to feature higher levels of highly skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other highly trained professionals. Given its score in this category, we weren't surprised to learn that this facility is well below average in terms of its quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its residents based on the figures we assessed. Frankly, this was what we expected here. Lastly, we considered the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This was not a strength for this nursing home. We found that just 3.2 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home. At most nursing homes, around half of their residents are able to return home so this is well below average.
