Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

While this facility's overall grade was not bad, it really fared well in the category of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A+ for that category, which is one of our highest scores. Our inspection grades account for several factors included in a facility's inspection reports. One key criteria we look at is the number and severity of deficiencies. Places with higher scores in this category tend to have very few of these severe deficiencies. This nursing home was assessed 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This indicates that CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies to pose an imminent risk to patient safety or health. A couple of minor deficiencies should not stop you from considering a nursing home.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home's short-term care score appears to be one of its more favorable features. The nursing home was awarded a grade of B- in this category. In crafting our short-term care scores, we look at the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. Our goal is to create a measure for comparing the rehabilitation services of various nursing homes. We found that this place was below average in the two key staffing areas we looked at. In fact, it offered fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other facilities. The final statistic we looked at in this category is the number of patients that ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that just 5.6 percent of this facility's residents returned home. Unfortunately, this was below the national average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

Moving on to another strength for this facility, it also received an elite nursing grade. We gave this facility a grade of D. We assessed the skill-level of nurses at the nursing home, in addition to the number of hours those nurses spent with patients, in computing our score in this category. This place provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident each day. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing scores. This place fared well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these datapoints to be indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The next area we rated was long-term care, which turned out to be this nursing home's least impressive area. We gave this nursing home a D in this area. Long-term care grades in this range generally are a bad sign for the quantity and quality of care provided by nurses and aids, as well as the levels of routine medical care available. On top of assessing the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. We were a bit bothered by the fact that this nursing home administered the vaccine to just 79.12088 percent of its patients. To our surprise, this place actually fared well at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had just 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This was its best score in this category.
