Facility Inspections

Grade: A

To pair with its relatively modest overall score, we gave this nursing home an A for its inspection grade. This grade is far better than the facility's overall grade. Arguably the most important factor we consider in calculating our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Places with better grades in this category typically dodged the most severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. Although this place had some deficiencies on its report, none of them 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 awarded this nursing home a B+ in our long-term care category. This happens to be one of our better scores. Nursing homes that do well in this category typically are well-staffed and provide extensive hands on care to residents. On top of considering the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 99.729 percent of its residents. Vaccines are vital to keeping patients healthy. Lastly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

We awarded this facility just a D for our short-term care grade. This is not an impressive grade. Short-term care ratings are critical for patients in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally mandates additional highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means a vast range of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Unfortunately, we found that this nursing home provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. The final statistic we considered in this area is the number of residents that returned home from the facility. This facility struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 0 percent of its patients returning home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

Moving on to our final category, we awarded this nursing home a D for our nursing category. This was the nursing home's weakest category score. Of course, this score pulled down the facility's overall profile to some degree. We weighed the levels of nurses at the facility, in addition to the quantity of time the nurses were with patients, in computing our rating in this category. With a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient daily, this place's nurse staffing levels were well below the national average. To pair with its subpar totals in the area of nursing hours per resident, this facility also didn't perform as well in the quality-based measures we looked at in computing our nursing grades. We looked at the percentage of residents experiencing major falls and pressure ulcers. This nursing home had more pressure ulcers and falls than the average facility.
