Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

Although we did not have many favorable things to say about this facility's overall score, it earned a respectable government inspection report this year. As a result, it received a decent grade in that category with a B-. Our inspection scores are based on several items found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are a key item to look for on these reports. Severe deficiencies indicate a threat to the well being of residents. While this facility had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. A couple minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home's second best category is short-term care. We gave it a grade of B- in this category. This is essentially a middle of the road score in this area. Our short-term care grades are based on the nursing home's quantity of skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This means a wide spectrum of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, not to mention other variations of therapy. In this facility's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the typical facility. The final datapoint we considered in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We discovered that just 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is actually below average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

We awarded this facility a respectable grade in the area of nursing as well, with a grade of C. Nursing grades are tied to levels of nurse staffing. This nursing home averages just 0.2 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality measures. Although this facility got dinged a bit for its nursing hours, it actually excelled in some of these quality-based measures. With fewer than five percent of its residents suffering from pressure ulcers, it did well in this metric. This is typically a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can frequently be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as having a policy of moving a patient even once per day.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The last area we analyzed was long-term care, where this facility received an abysmal grade in this area also. It received an F for this area, which is definitely somewhat alarming. Nursing homes that receive this kind of score in long-term care may not provide the kind of consistent around the clock care that some other nursing homes offer. Once we assessed the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then looked at the facility's vaccination statistics. Unfortunately, this facility vaccinated a relatively low 87.14286 percent of its patients for pneumonia. Surprisingly, this facility was actually decent at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had just 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This was its best score in this category.
