Facility Inspections

Grade: A

Although we didn't grade this nursing home favorably overall, we actually gave it an excellent score in the category of inspections, where it earned an A. Our inspection ratings are tied to pieces of information found on 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 with severe deficiencies linked to endangerment of patients. Although this nursing home had some deficiencies on its report, none of them were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. A few minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

One of the other reasons we rated this nursing home so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing score. In that area, we awarded this nursing home an B-. We scrutinized the levels of nurses employed by the nursing home, in addition to the number of hours those nurses spent with patients, in determining our score in this category. This nursing home averages just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as preventing major falls. Despite not having the highest total nursing hours per resident, this place performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is typically an indicator that a nursing home has quality controls in place. Many falls could be avoided if a nursing home provides enough nurses to assist its residents.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Unfortunately, this facility's next highest category is short-term care. Nevertheless, with a grade of D in this area, it still performed somewhat poorly. Our short-term care grades are arguably most important for people requiring a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically mandates higher levels of highly-skilled nursing services. This means not just nursing services, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. Not surprisingly, we learned that this nursing home offers significantly less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. Finally, we assessed the number of patients who ultimately were able to return home from this nursing home. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 4.9 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was quite a bit off the national average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The next category we rated was long-term care, in which this facility received a poor grade in this category also. We gave it a lowly F for this category, which is obviously somewhat alarming. When facilities receive this type of grade in long-term care it is often a bad sign for patient care and it may indicate that the nursing home is not as well-staffed. Once we concluded our assessment of the amount of nursing care, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination record. We were a bit worried that this facility vaccinated just 62.580647 percent of its patients against pneumonia. To our surprise, this nursing home was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home had less hospitalizations than many nursing homes. This was its best feature in this category.
