Facility Inspections

Grade: A

While this nursing home's overall grade was not a highlight, it actually really excelled in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A for that category, which is one of our highest scores. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining our inspection scores. One key factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more important than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies end up being relatively insignificant. This place was hit with 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This indicates that CMS didn't consider any of these deficiencies to create an imminent risk to resident safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

We also want to point out that this facility received a decent grade in our nursing category. We awarded it a grade of C in the area. Nursing grades are primarily based on the nursing home's nurse staffing. This place provides only 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is a somewhat concerning figure which is well below the national average. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this place actually excelled in some of the quality-based metrics we assessed. It performed well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these areas to be reliable measures of the quality of nursing care. In some cases, the quality of nursing care is just as important as the number of hours of care provided.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

This nursing home's second worse score is long-term care, where it earned just a D in that category. This is a well below average score. For long-term care residents, the nursing home's primary goal is to maintain patients' quality of life and keep them safe. One of the criteria we considered in addition to nursing hours was vaccines. Fortunately, this nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccine to 97.59036 percent of its residents. To our surprise, this facility also keeps its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had just 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Sadly, some of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The next category we rated was short-term care. Sadly, it received a lowly F in this area, which is a rock bottom score. Short-term care scores are based on a facility's quantity of highly-skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This means a wide range of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other variations 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 metric we considered in this area is the number of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 4.6 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these poor metrics was damning for this nursing home's short-term care score.
