Facility Inspections

Grade: A

While this facility's overall grade was not bad, it really excelled in the category of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A for that category, which is one of our highest scores. Inspection grades account for several factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we consider is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with better scores in this area tend to have very few severe deficiencies. This nursing home was assessed 7 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This tells you that CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies to create an immediate risk to patient safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies should not lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The second best category we gave this nursing home in any category came in the area of short-term care, where we gave it a C. Our short-term care ratings are critical for individuals needing rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually mandates more highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes a broad range of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Unfortunately, we found that this nursing home provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. Lastly, we considered the number of patients who ultimately returned home from this nursing home. We found that 5.6 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was actually quite a bit below the national average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

We also gave this nursing home a respectable grade in the category of long-term care, where it received a grade of C. For prospective patients seeking a permanent place to live as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care grades are a key measure. After assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination statistics. We were disappointed to learn that this facility vaccinated a relatively low 84.43114 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Nevertheless, this nursing home was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

The last category we assessed was nursing, which turned out to be this nursing home's worst area. We gave this nursing home a grade of D in this area. Our nursing rating is based on a handful of components, most of which are associated with quantities of nurse staffing. This nursing home provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This is not a very impressive figure. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing scores. This place performed well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
