Facility Inspections

Grade: B

Although we gave this place a terrible overall grade, we gave it a B for our inspections category. This is the result of the facility receiving a quality inspection report this year. These inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can find more information about each of these items by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This place was hit with 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This means that CMS did not consider any of the deficiencies to be an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A few minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

We were also surprised to find that this facility received a decent nursing grade this year. We gave it a grade of C in that category. When determining a nursing home's nursing grade, we look at the number of hours nurses are seeing patients and the levels of training of the nurses. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this place surprisingly excelled in some of the quality measures we looked at. In fact, it scored well when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

Incredibly, we gave this nursing home a grade of C for our short-term care rating, which is not a bad grade. Short-term care grades are crucial for people looking for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually utilizes more skilled nursing. This means a vast spectrum of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other types of therapy. In this place'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 final measure we looked at in this area is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 4.4 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is actually below average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The next category we rated was long-term care. It received an abysmal F for this category, which is a very poor score. When facilities receive this type of score in this category it is typically a bad sign for resident care and it may mean that the facility is not as well-staffed. After considering the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 92.125984 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which happens to be a bit lower than we anticipated but still a reasonably acceptable percentage. Surprisingly, this nursing home was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility has fewer hospitalizations than most nursing homes. This is its best feature in this category.
