Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

Although we did not rate this nursing home favorably overall, we want to point out its relatively favorable inspections in recent years. We gave it a B+ in this category, which was much better than its overall score. Inspection ratings are tied to many items located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are a key thing to look for on these reports. You should especially avoid nursing homes that have severe deficiencies linked to risks to resident well being. Fortunately, although this nursing home had a few minor dings on its report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G through L. This tells you that CMS did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A few minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facilities second most favorable category is long-term care. We awarded it a B- in this area. This is basically a slightly below average grade in this area. Our long-term care grade assesses a facility's assistance with daily living instead of the skilled therapy and medical services that are critical to a rehabilitation facility. One of the statistics we considered in addition to nursing hours was vaccines. This facility administered the pneumonia vaccination to 91.735535 percent of its patients. On a more positive note, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.03 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

We awarded this facility a respectable grade in the area of nursing as well, with a grade of C. In computing our nursing scores, we look at both nursing hours and the levels of licensure of the nurses. This facility provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Lastly, nursing grades also consider quality-based assessments, such as preventing major falls. Despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours, this place actually performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is generally a reliable indicator that a facility has quality controls in place. Many falls can be avoided if a nursing home provides enough nurses to assist its residents.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The last area we scored is short-term care. Sadly, it received a lowly F for this category, which is an abysmal score. Our short-term care ratings are arguably more important for folks needing a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually requires higher levels of skilled nursing. This includes not merely nursing services, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Given its grade in this category, we were not stunned to discover that this place was well below average in terms of the quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours offered to its patients based on the data we looked at. The last item we assessed in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 5 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these poor metrics sunk this nursing home's short-term care score.
