Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

While we were not high on this facility overall, we awarded it a grade of A- for our inspections rating. This score is significantly more impressive than the nursing home's overall score. Our inspection scores account for several factors found on a facility's inspection reports. One key criteria we look at is the number and severity of deficiencies. You generally want to avoid nursing homes with too many deficiencies flagged. While this place had some deficiencies on its report, none of them were severe based on CMS' scale. A few minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

This facility's second best category was nursing, but even there it received a grade of just D. This is still a well below average grade. Our nursing grade is primarily associated with a facility's level of nurse staffing. This place averaged only 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing ratings. This facility fared well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Unfortunately, this facility only earned a D for its long-term care grade, which is not an impressive grade. When nursing homes receive this type of grade in this category it is often a bad sign for patient care and it may mean that the nursing home is not as well-staffed with nurses and aids. Once we assessed the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination data. We were a bit alarmed this nursing home vaccinated 80.86957 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which happens to be several points below what we expected. To our surprise, this facility was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility has less hospitalizations than the average nursing home. This is its best score in this category.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The next category we scored was short-term care. This facility received a poor grade of F in that category. In our short-term care score, we strive to forge a meaningful measure for rehabilitation. In doing so, we assess a facility's offerings of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. Given its grade in this category, we weren't surprised to learn that this place is well below average in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours offered to its residents based on the measures we looked at. Frankly, this was about what we expected here. The last item we assessed in this category is the number of patients that ultimately were able to return home from the facility. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 3.5 percent of its residents returning home. Unfortunately, this was well below average.
