Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

While we were not high on this place overall, we awarded it a B+ for our inspections category. This grade is much more impressive than the nursing home's overall score. Perhaps the most significant factor we consider in determining our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's inspection reports. It is typically best to avoid nursing homes that had a long list of deficiencies. This place was assessed 6 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered severe. This means that CMS didn't consider any of the deficiencies to cause an immediate risk to patient health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

This nursing home also received an impressive grade in our short-term care category. We awarded this nursing home an above average grade of B in that area. Our short-term care ratings are presumably most important for those requiring a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally mandates higher levels of skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means not merely nursing services, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. Unfortunately, it doesn't appear that this facility provided information on registered nurse or physical therapist staffing. The last statistic we assessed in this category is the percentage of residents who ultimately returned home from the nursing home. We found that 6.1 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Sadly, this facility's third highest category is long-term care. However, with a D in this area, it still fared somewhat poorly. In a long-term care environment, the facility's primary objective is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. One of the datapoints we considered after nurse's aid hours was vaccinations. Thankfully, this facility administered the pneumonia vaccine to 99.57806 percent of its residents. To our surprise, this facility also keeps its residents out of the hospital. It had just 0.04 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

Turning to the fourth area, this nursing home really didn't perform well in this category either. Due to a bottom of the barrel grade of F in nursing, this is about as as uninspiring as it gets. In calculating our nursing scores, we assess both nursing hours and the training levels of the nurses. This nursing home provided only 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient daily. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing ratings. This nursing home performed well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these data points to be good measures of the quality of nursing care.
