Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

This nursing home earned a solid overall grade as described above, but we really wanted to point out its excellent government inspections in recent years. We gave them an impressive grade of A+ in this category. Arguably the most critical factor we look at in computing our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Places with higher scores in this area typically dodged the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. This nursing home was hit with 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be severe. This means that CMS did not deem any of these deficiencies to cause an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is always a good sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This nursing home also received a positive grade in our long-term care category. We gave this nursing home an above average grade of B+ in this category. Facilities that do well in long-term care tend to be well-staffed and provide extensive hands on care to patients. One of the statistics we considered after nurse's aid hours is vaccinations. This nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccination to 97.85933 percent of its patients. This is a great way to minimize negative health outcomes for the nursing home population. Finally, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

Turning to another strength for this facility, it also received an elite nursing rating. In fact, we gave this nursing home an impressive grade of D. The nursing grade weighs many subcategories, but the paramount one is the quantity of nurse hours spent with patients. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing ratings. This nursing home fared well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The last category we analyzed was short-term care. Sadly, it received an F in this category, which is a rock bottom score. This is certainly a major disappointment. Our short-term care grades are based on the facility's quantity of skilled highly skilled professionals. This includes a vast range of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, not to mention other variations of therapy. With a grade this poor for this area, we weren't shocked to learn that this place was well below average in two of the key staffing metrics we assess. In fact, it supplied substantially fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than most nursing homes. Finally, we assessed the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This was not a strength for this nursing home. We found that just 1.7 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most facilities, about half of their patients are able to return home so this is well below average.
