Facility Inspections

Grade: A

The main reason this ended up being a decent nursing home is that it received an elite inspection score. In fact, its inspection score was far better than its overall score. In the inspections category, we gave it an A. Inspection scores account for several factors found on a facility's inspection report. One key criteria we consider is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with higher grades in this category generally have few of these severe deficiencies. This place was hit with 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This tells you that CMS didn't consider any of the deficiencies to create an imminent risk to patient safety or health. A couple of minor deficiencies should not lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

Another one of this nursing home's stronger areas was in the category of nursing care. In that area, we gave this facility a grade of B. Nursing ratings are mostly based on a nursing home's nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 3.7 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also factored a few quality measures into our nursing grades. This place was relatively weak in two of the major areas we focus on, with below average scores for minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. These areas are generally reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care provided.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

This facilities next most favorable area is short-term care. We gave it a C in this area. This is essentially a middle of the road grade in this category. Short-term care grades are based on the facility's quantity of skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This means a vast scope of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. This nursing home elevated its grade in this category by offering more care from registered nurses to its residents than the average facility. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of residents who were able to return home from this facility. This place performed respectably in this area with 46 percent of its residents returning home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Moving on to our fourth area, this nursing home did not perform well. Due to a rock bottom grade of F in long-term care, this was this nursing home's weakest area. Facilities that do not score well in long-term care often do not provide as much nursing care and also may be lagging in a few of the areas of routine medical care we looked at. In addition to looking at the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. We discovered that this nursing home gave the vaccine to a relatively low 65.89147 percent of its residents, which is well below average. Surprisingly, this facility was actually decent at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0.9 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This is its best feature in this category.
