Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

The primary reason this nursing home received a decent overall grade is its excellent inspections in recent years. We awarded it one of our higher grades in that area, with an A+. This is a much better grade than the facility's overall score, which was decent but certainly not elite. Our inspection grades are tied to several datapoints located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities that receive favorable grades in this category have very few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these facilities generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. This facility received 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This means that CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies to be an immediate risk to resident health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is always a good sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Another one of this facility's higher category scores was in the category of long-term care. In that area, we gave this facility a B+. For prospective patients seeking a permanent residence rather than skilled nursing, long-term care is an important category. In addition to looking at the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 44.81132 percent of its residents. This is a few points lower than we anticipated. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

Next we wanted to quickly point out one of this facility's major weaknesses. In the area of nursing care, we gave this nursing home a lowly grade of F. There are many criteria within this grade. Many of these datapoints are tied to the quantity and quality of nurse staffing. This facility averaged just 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient each day. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing ratings. This facility fared well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The final area we rated was short-term care, which was this facility's weakest area. It received an F in this area, which is obviously concerning. In calculating our short-term care grades, we assess a nursing home's levels of highly skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other types of therapists. This rating is frequently a meaningful assessment of the facility's ability to rehabilitate patients. With a score of this caliber for this area, we were not shocked to learn that this facility was below average in many staffing figures we looked at. It provided far fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most facilities. The last datapoint we considered in this category is the number of patients who returned home from the facility. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 5.1 percent of its residents returning home. This was well below average.
