Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

The main reason this nursing home received a decent overall score is its impeccable government inspections in recent years. We awarded them one of our higher grades in that area, with a grade of A+. This is a notably better score than the place's overall score, which was decent but certainly not elite. Our inspection ratings weigh a host of factors included in a facility's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we look at is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Places with higher scores in this category generally have few of these severe deficiencies. Although this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none were serious based on CMS' scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

In addition, we also wanted to draw your attention to the fact that this facility was given strong long-term care marks this year. We gave them one of our higher grades in this area, with a grade of B+. This turned out to be the nursing home's second strongest score. Facilities that receive this type of score in long-term care tend to provide consistent around the clock care to make sure patients are kept in good health. After looking at the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination data. This facility vaccinated 68.079094 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which happens to be somewhat less than we were hoping for but still a respectable percentage. Although its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we like to see, at least this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

The next highest grade we gave this nursing home in any area came in the category of nursing, where we gave it a grade of C. The nursing score weighs several datapoints. The most heavily weighted variable is the number of hours nurses spend with patients. This facility provided just 0.2 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This figure is significantly below average. Finally, while this place got docked a bit for nursing hours per resident, it excelled in some of our quality-based measures. With less than five percent of its patients sustaining pressure ulcers, it fared very well in this subcategory.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Switching gears to the next area, this nursing home did not fare very well. With an abysmal grade of F in short-term care, this is this nursing home's poorest category. With our short-term care grade, we attempt to forge a sound measure for rehabilitation. In doing so, we assess a facility's scope of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. Unfortunately, this nursing home was below average in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its residents based on the measures we assessed. The last item 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 4.4 percent of its patients returning home. Unfortunately, this was well below the national average.
