Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

Although we were not complementary of this facility's overall performance, it did receive an impressive inspection report this year with few dings from the applicable government inspectors. As a result, it received one of our better grades in that area with a B+. Our inspection ratings account for several factors included in a nursing home's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we consider is the number and severity of deficiencies. You generally want to avoid nursing homes with a bunch of severe deficiencies flagged. This place received 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This tells you that CMS did not consider any of the deficiencies to cause an immediate risk to resident health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facility's long-term care grade turns out to be one of its higher grades. The nursing home was given a grade of B- in this area. Long-term care grades focus on a nursing home's assistance with daily living rather than the highly skilled therapy or medical services that are critical to a skilled nursing facility. After looking at the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is higher than the average nursing home. This nursing home keeps its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

We gave this facility a grade of just D for our nursing rating. When calculating our nursing grades, we look at both the number of hours nurses spend with residents and the training levels of those nurses. This place offered a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This number is well below the national average. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing ratings. This place performed well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Moving on to our last area, this nursing home didn't fare very well in this area either. Due to a very poor grade of F in short-term care, this is really as terrible as it gets. Short-term care grades are commonly used to measure a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation. To offer high-end rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must provide higher levels of highly skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other highly skilled individuals. Based on its poor score in this category, we weren't shocked to discover that this facility provides substantially fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. Finally, we looked at the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. This definitely wasn't a strength for this nursing home. We found that just 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home. At most nursing homes, around half of their patients are able to return home so this is well below average.
