Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

Although we didn't grade this facility favorably overall, we actually gave it an excellent grade in the category of inspections, where it received an A+. Inspection ratings account for a host of factors included in a nursing home's inspection reports. One key criteria we consider is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. You should avoid facilities with a list of severe deficiencies flagged. While this place had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. A couple minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

This facility's second most favorable area was its long-term care grade, where it was given a C. In determining our long-term care scores, we scrutinize the personal care offered to a nursing home's patients. Once we finished looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination record. We were optimistic to discover that this nursing home vaccinates 99.69231 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Finally, this facility was also able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Moving on to the area of short-term care, this facility was given just a D in this area. Our short-term care scores are crucial for prospective residents in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically requires more highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means a vast range of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. The last item we assessed in this area is the percentage of residents who who were able to eventually return home from the nursing home. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 0 percent of its residents returning home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

The last area we assessed is nursing, in which this nursing home was given a rock bottom grade in this area also. It received a lowly F for this area, which is definitely a major concern. Our nursing score analyzes the facility's nurse staffing levels. We factor in both the levels of skill of those nurses and the quantity of hours spent with residents. This particular facility averaged just 0.2 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This number is far below average. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing grades. This facility performed well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
