Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

To pair with its relatively modest overall score, we awarded this facility an A+ for our inspections rating. This score is far more impressive than its overall grade. Arguably the most critical factor we look at in determining our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. Facilities with better scores in this area typically dodged the more severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. Fortunately, although this facility had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G through L. This means that CMS didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. The fact that none of the deficiencies were severe made us feel better about this inspection report.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facility's next best area came in the area of long-term care. In that area, we awarded this nursing home a B-. For long-term care residents, the facility's primary objective is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. On top of assessing the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 82.70894 percent of its residents. This is significantly less than the national average. Fortunately, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

One of this facility's better category grades was in the area of nursing care. In that area, we gave this facility a grade of B-. The nursing score weighs a number of factors. The most important one is the number of hours nurses spent with residents. This nursing home provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This figure is significantly below the national average. Finally, despite not having the highest total nursing hours per resident, this facility actually performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is typically an indicator that a place has sufficient quality controls in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Switching gears to the fourth category, we awarded this nursing home a grade of D for short-term care. This is the facility's weakest category rating. Sadly, this score pulled down the nursing home's overall profile to a certain degree. Short-term care ratings are vital for residents in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically utilizes additional skilled nursing. This means a wide range of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Unfortunately, we learned that this place provides fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than most nursing homes. The last datapoint we assessed in this category is the number of patients who ultimately returned home from the nursing home. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 4.9 percent of its residents returning home. Unfortunately, this was quite a bit below average.
