Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

This facility received a solid overall grade as described above, but we really wanted to emphasize its excellent government inspection reports in recent years. We gave them an impressive grade of A- in this category. These inspection ratings weigh several factors, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can find more information about each of these items by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this facility had some minor dings on its report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones labeled as categories G through L. This means CMS did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A couple of minor deficiencies should not lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facility's second highest area is short-term care. In that area, we gave this facility a B-. Our short-term care scores are considered to be more important for residents in need of rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation usually utilizes higher levels of highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes not only nursing services, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. In this facility's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than the average facility. The final measure we assessed in this area is the percentage of patients that who were able to eventually return home from the facility. We found that just 5.3 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facility's next best category grade came in the area of nursing. In that category, we gave this nursing home a grade of B-. Our nursing score analyzes the nursing home's nurse staffing levels. We factor in both the levels of skill of those nurses and the amount of time spent with residents. This facility averages 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis, which is a very low figure. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this place surprisingly fared better in some of the quality-based metrics we assessed. In fact, it scored well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good measures of the quality of nursing care. In some cases, the quality of nursing care is as important as the quantity of hours of care offered.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The last category we graded was long-term care, is this nursing home's weakest category. We awarded this facility a grade of D in that category. For prospective patients looking for a permanent place to live as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care grades are a key measure. Once we concluded our assessment of the volume of care provided by nurses, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination data. We were pleased to find that this nursing home vaccinated 95.09804 percent of its patients for pneumonia. Surprisingly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.03 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility has fewer hospitalizations than many nursing homes. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.
