Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

While we were fairly low on this nursing home overall, we awarded it a grade of A+ for our inspections rating. This score is significantly more impressive than the nursing home's overall grade. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining our inspection grades. One of those factors is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies are quite minor. While this nursing home had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. A couple minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home's second best category was its long-term care score, where it received a B-. For patients seeking a permanent residence rather than rehabilitation, long-term care grades are very important. After looking at the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination statistics. We were disappointed to learn that this nursing home vaccinated just 80.40346 percent of its patients for pneumonia. Lastly, we looked at the nursing home's number of hospitalizations. We found that this place had 2.53 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. While this figure is somewhat concerning, this number may be skewed for some facilities due to the preexisting medical conditions of patients.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

We awarded this facility a grade of just D for our short-term care grade. This is not one of our better scores. In our short-term care category, we attempt to create a valuable gauge for rehabilitation. In doing so, we look at a nursing home's offerings of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. Considering its grade in this category, we weren't stunned to learn that this place was well below average in terms of its quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its residents based on the measures we looked at. Honestly, this was what we expected here. The final metric we looked at in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. It performed better in this area, with 54.4 percent of its residents returning home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

Turning to our last area, this nursing home did not perform well in this area either. With a poor grade of F in nursing, this is really as bad as it gets. Our nursing score weighs a variety of subcategories. The most important one is the amount of time nurses spend with residents. This place provided only 3 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This is well below average. To go along with its low totals in the area of nursing hours per resident, this nursing home also did not fare as well in the quality-based measures we looked at in computing our nursing grades. We looked at the percentage of patients sustaining major falls and pressure ulcers. This place had more pressure ulcers and falls than the average nursing home. This may be a bad sign when you consider that many bed sores and falls are believed to be preventable with better nursing care. These statistics hurt this facility's nursing grade quite a bit.
