Facility Inspections

Grade: A

Although we did not rate this nursing home favorably overall, we want to draw your attention to its nearly flawless inspections in recent years. We awarded them an impressive grade of A in this category. Inspection ratings weigh a host of factors included in a nursing home's inspection reports. One key criteria we look at is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. You should avoid places with too many severe deficiencies flagged. Although this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. A couple minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

We also awarded this nursing home a decent score in the area of short-term care, with a grade of C. In calculating our short-term care ratings, we assess the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. Our goal is to formulate a barometer for comparing the rehabilitation services of different facilities. We were surprised to find that this place was below average in the two key staffing areas we looked at. In fact, it supplied fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other facilities. Finally, we assessed the number of residents that who were able to eventually return home from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was actually quite a bit below the national average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

Unfortunately, this facility only received a grade of D for its nursing grade, which was actually one of its better category grades. In determining our nursing grades, we assess both nursing hours and the training levels of the nurses. This nursing home offered a meager 0.5 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This is well below average. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing scores. This place performed well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these datapoints to be good measures of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The last area we graded is long-term care, proved to be this facility's weakest category. We gave this facility a D in that area. When nursing homes receive a grade in this range in this category it typically means the nursing home didn't perform well in our measures relating to resident care. In addition to considering the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 81.818184 percent of its residents. This is multiple points below what we expected. To our surprise, this place was actually decent at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This is its best score in this category.
