Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

While we didn't give this nursing home a good overall grade, we did give it a relatively strong grade in the area of inspections, where it earned a B+. Our inspection grades are based on many datapoints found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are an important item to look for on these reports. Most importantly, you should avoid facilities with severe deficiencies linked to endangerment of patients. Although this place had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. A few minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

One of this facility's higher category scores was in the category of short-term care. This turned out to be its second best category. In that category, we awarded this nursing home a C. Our short-term care ratings are arguably most critical for individuals requiring rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation typically mandates higher levels of skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means not only nursing, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. Unfortunately, we found that this place provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other nursing homes. The tricky part is determining what bearing this had on the quality of care. The last datapoint we considered in this category is the percentage of patients who eventually returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 5.1 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

We awarded this facility a respectable grade in the area of nursing as well, with a grade of C. We assessed the qualifications of nurses employed by the nursing home, as well as the quantity of hours the nurses spent with patients, in calculating our score in this area. This facility provided just 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this place fared better in some of the quality-based metrics we assessed. In fact, it scored well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these areas to be measures of the quality of nursing care. In many cases, the quality of nursing care is every bit as important as the number of hours of care offered.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Moving on to our final category, this nursing home really did not fare very well in this category either. With a poor grade of F in long-term care, this is just about as bad as it gets. In a long-term care setting, the nursing home's primary goal is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. Once we looked at the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination records. We were optimistic to find that this nursing home vaccinated 95.46828 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Surprisingly, this place also fared well at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had just 0.03 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Sadly, some of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.
