Facility Inspections

Grade: B

While we were not complementary of this place's overall performance, it actually received an impressive inspection report this year with few dings from the applicable government inspectors. As a result, it received one of our better grades in that area with a B. Our inspection ratings are tied to many items located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are an important thing to look for on these inspections. You should especially avoid nursing homes that have severe deficiencies linked to risks to resident well being. While this nursing home had some deficiencies on its report, none were severe based on CMS' scale. A couple minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facility's next most favorable area ended up being short-term care. In that category, we gave this nursing home a grade of B-. In our short-term care score, we endeavor to forge a fair gauge for rehabilitation services. In this process, we assess the nursing home's scope of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. Unfortunately, this facility was below average in terms of its number of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its patients based on the measures we assessed. The real question is whether this adversely affected quality of care. The last datapoint we assessed in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 5.5 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is actually below average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home actually received a decent grade in the area of nursing as well. We awarded it a grade of B- for that category, which is not a bad score. When calculating a facility's nursing score, we assess the number of hours nurses are caring for patients as well as the level of licensure of those nurses. This facility averages just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident daily, which is not an impressive total. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility actually excelled in some of the quality-based metrics we assessed. In fact, it scored well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The final category we assessed is long-term care. This facility received a very poor grade of F in that area. Facilities that don't fare well in long-term care often don't provide as much nursing care and also may be lagging in some of the areas of routine personal care we assessed. One of the factors we considered in addition to nurse's aid hours was vaccines. This nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccination to 91.53605 percent of its patients. To our surprise, this nursing home actually fared well at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had just 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This was its best feature in this category.
