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 an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

Turning to an additional strength for this nursing home, we awarded it a superb long-term care grade. Indeed, we awarded this facility a grade of A-. 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 48.019802 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: D

Turning to another strength for this facility, it also earned an elite nursing grade. In fact, we gave this facility an D. There are a variety of factors included in this grade. Many of these criteria are tied to staffing levels. This facility provided a meager 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This is well below average. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing grades. This place performed well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The final area we rated is short-term care. We gave this facility a grade of D in the area of short-term care, making this its least impressive category. In our short-term care grade, we seek to craft a fair barometer for rehabilitation services. In this process, we analyze a facility's scope of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. Unfortunately, this nursing home was below average in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its residents based on the measures we assessed. The final measure we assessed in this area is the percentage of residents that returned home from the facility. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 4.4 percent of its residents returning home.
