Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

In addition to having a decent overall grade, we also would like to point out that this facility received favorable government inspections in recent years. We gave them one of our better scores in that area, with a B+. This is a much better score than the facility's overall score. Our inspection grades account for a host of factors found on a facility's inspection reports. One key criteria we consider is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with better scores in this area typically have very few severe deficiencies. While this place had a few deficiencies on its report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. A couple of minor deficiencies shouldn't lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facility's next highest category came in the area of short-term care. In that area, we awarded this facility a B-. In determining our short-term care scores, we analyze the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The objective is to formulate a measure for comparing the rehabilitation services of nursing homes. In this facility's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. The hope is that this does not adversely affect the quality of care. The last item we assessed in this area is the percentage of patients that ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that just 5.1 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

This facility's next best category was its nursing grade, where it received a grade of C. Our nursing score is primarily associated with the nursing home's nurse staffing. This place provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most facilities. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility surprisingly excelled in some of the quality-based metrics we looked at. In fact, it scored well when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these areas to be reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care. In many cases, the quality of nursing care is just as important as the quantity of hours of care provided.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

This nursing home's least impressive category was long-term care, which is the last category we assessed. In this area, we gave this nursing home a grade of just D. Long-term care scores of this caliber generally are a bad sign for the quantity and quality of care provided by nurses and aids, as well as the levels of routine medical care available. Once we looked at the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination data. We were disappointed to learn that this nursing home vaccinated a relatively low 65.5914 percent of its patients for pneumonia. Surprisingly, this place was actually decent at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This was its best feature in this category.
