Facility Inspections

Grade: A

While this nursing home's overall grade was decent, it really excelled in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A for that category, which is one of our highest scores. Inspection ratings account for several factors included in a facility's inspection reports. One key criteria we consider is the number and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with better scores in this area typically have few of these severe deficiencies. While this place had a few minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you that CMS didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is always a good sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

Additionally, we also wanted to point out that this facility received impressive long-term care marks in this assessment. We gave them one of our more favorable grades in that category, with a B. This proved to be the facility's second highest grade. When facilities receive this kind of score in this category it is a good sign for patient care and suggests that the nursing home is well-staffed with nurses aids. Once we assessed the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 94.15205 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Vaccines are vital to keeping patients out of the hospital. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

Turning to another strength for this facility, it also earned an elite nursing rating. We gave this facility a grade of D. Our nursing score is largely tied to a nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This particular facility offered just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This number is well below the national average. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing grades. This nursing home fared well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The final area we assessed was short-term care. We gave it an abysmal F in this area, which is a rock bottom grade. This is obviously a major disappointment. Short-term care ratings are vital for patients in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally utilizes additional skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means a vast scope of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other types of therapy. With its score in this category, we weren't stunned to find that this place was well below average in terms of its number of registered nurse and physical therapy hours offered to its patients based on the data we assessed. Frankly, this was about what we expected to find. Lastly, we considered the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that just 4.9 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.
