Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

Although this nursing home's overall grade was not a highlight, it received a somewhat respectable score in the category of inspections. We awarded it a B- for that category, which is a decent score. We would argue that one of the most critical factors in assessing an inspection report is deficiencies. We especially focus on the severity of the deficiencies. While this nursing home had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you the government inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Lastly, this facility was flagged by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. We prefer to avoid facilities with this designation. Please do your best to find an alternative nursing home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

We also ended up giving this facility a fairly respectable grade in the area of nursing, where it received a grade of B-. In computing a facility's nursing rating, we consider the amount of time nurses are seeing patients and the level of licensure of the nurses. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Lastly, despite not having the highest total nursing hours, this place actually performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is generally a good indicator that a facility has sufficient quality controls in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

We also awarded this facility a middle of the road grade in the area of short-term care, where we gave it a B-. Our short-term care ratings are based on the nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled nursing services. This means a broad spectrum of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, not to mention other types of therapy. We found that this facility was below average in the two key staffing areas we assessed. It offered fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other facilities. It is important to determine whether this also correlates to a lower quality of care. The final metric we considered in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the facility and return home. We discovered that just 6 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is below average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The final category we scored was long-term care. We gave this facility a B- in this category. In the area of long-term care, we analyze the quantity of services offered by a facility, rather than more medically-intensive services. Once we looked at the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination statistics. We were pleased to learn that this nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients for pneumonia. Finally, this facility was also able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
