Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

While this facility's overall grade wasn't a highlight, it received a decent score in the area of nursing. We awarded it a B- for that category. Our nursing grade includes many datapoints, but the most important one is the level of nurse hours spent with patients. This nursing home averages just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Finally, nursing ratings also factor in quality-based metrics, such as avoiding major falls. Despite not having the highest total nursing hours, this facility performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is often a good indicator that a place has quality controls in place. Many falls can be avoided if a nursing home supplies enough nurses aids to assist its patients.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

We were also pleasantly surprised to award this facility a relatively favorable health inspection grade as well. We awarded it a B- in this category, which was much better than its overall grade. We would argue that one of the most critical factors in evaluating an inspection report is deficiencies. We especially focus on the severity of the deficiencies. This nursing home was hit with 8 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This means that CMS didn't consider any of these deficiencies to create an imminent threat to resident health or safety. A few minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Sadly, this facility only earned a grade of D for its short-term care score, which is not a very good score. In the area of short-term care, we strive to assess indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We analyze a facility's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. Based on its grade in this area, we were not stunned to learn that this place is well below average in terms of its number of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its patients based on the measures we assessed. Honestly, this was about what we expected to find. The final measure we considered in this category is the number of patients who ultimately returned home from the nursing home. This facility struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 4.3 percent of its patients returning home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The next area we analyzed is long-term care, in which this nursing home received a very poor score in this area as well. It received an abysmal F in this area, which is definitely somewhat alarming. Long-term care ratings in this range generally are a bad sign for the quantity and quality of care provided by nurses and aids, as well as the levels of routine medical care available. After assessing the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination record. Unfortunately, this facility vaccinated a relatively low 70.83333 percent of its residents against pneumonia. To our surprise, this place was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home has less hospitalizations than most nursing homes. This is its best feature in this category.
