Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

This facility's overall score was propped up by the fact that it has received favorable inspections in recent years. We awarded it one of our better scores in that category, with a B+. This is a much better score than the nursing home's overall grade. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing these inspection grades. One key factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these can be quite insignificant. While this place had some minor dings on its report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G through L. This means that CMS didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A couple of minor deficiencies should not lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Another one of this facility's better category grades came in the area of short-term care. In that area, we awarded this facility a B+. Our short-term care grade is often used to assess a facility's performance with rehabilitation. To provide good rehabilitation services, facilities generally must have better levels of highly skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other types of therapists. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. However, based on the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last datapoint we looked at in this area is the number of residents that eventually returned home from the facility. We found that 5.2 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

We also gave this nursing home a decent score in the category of nursing care, with a grade of B-. We scrutinized the licensure of nurses employed by the nursing home, as well as the quantity of time the nurses worked with patients, in calculating our score in this category. This place provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This is a low total compared with most nursing homes. Lastly, our nursing ratings also consider quality-based measures, such as avoiding major falls. Despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours, this nursing home performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is typically a reliable indicator that a facility has quality controls in place. Some falls can be avoided if a facility provides enough nurses aids to assist its residents.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Moving on to the next category, this nursing home did not fare very well. Due to a rock bottom grade of F in long-term care, this is this facility's worst area. If you are seeking anything other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each facility's long-term care scores. Once we assessed the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination data. We were pleased to find that this facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients for pneumonia. Surprisingly, this place was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Sadly, some of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.
