Facility Inspections

Grade: A

While we were not high on this nursing home's overall score, it actually received a very impressive inspection report this year. In fact, it received a nearly flawless inspection report this year. As a result, it earned one of our highest grades in that category with an A. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing our inspection grades. One of those factors is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies end up being quite insignificant. While this nursing home had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none were severe based on CMS' scale. A few minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

This facility's short-term care grade is one of its best scores. The facility was awarded a C in this category. Our short-term care ratings are arguably most critical for residents in need of a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually requires higher levels of highly-skilled nursing. This means not merely nursing, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. Unfortunately, we found that this place provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. Finally, we considered the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 6 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most facilities, closer to half of their patients are able to return home so this figure is below average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Sadly, this facility's third highest score was long-term care. However, with a D in this category, it still performed relatively badly. For prospective patients seeking a permanent residence as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care is a very important category. Once we looked at the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 98.81423 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is higher than most nursing homes. Surprisingly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home had fewer hospitalizations than most nursing homes. Sadly, some of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

The last area we assessed was nursing. This facility received a very poor grade of F in that area. The nursing score weighs many components, but the most important one is the level of nurse hours per patient per week. With a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient daily, this nursing home's nurse staffing levels were quite a bit below the national average. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these areas to be good measures of the quality of nursing care.
