Facility Inspections

Grade: A

While we were not high on this facility overall, we awarded it an A for our inspections rating. This score is significantly more impressive than the nursing home's overall grade. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining our inspection ratings. One critical factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies are relatively minor. Fortunately, although this place had some minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G through L. This tells you CMS didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A few minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

In addition, we also would like to note that this facility received favorable long-term care marks this year. We gave them one of our better scores in this category, with a grade of B. This turned out to be the facility's second best grade. In a long-term care environment, the primary goal is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. After considering the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination record. This nursing home vaccinated 88.75 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is slightly less than we expected but still a decent percentage. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

Among this nursing home's several poor grades was its F in the area of nursing care. Our nursing rating analyzes several datapoints, most of which are associated with levels of nurse staffing. This place provided a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This is well below average. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing ratings. This place performed well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these statistics to be good measures of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The next category we analyzed was short-term care. We gave it a lowly F for this category, which is a rock bottom grade. Our short-term care grades are probably more important for those requiring rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation typically utilizes additional skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes not merely nursing, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. Considering its abysmal rating in this area, we weren't surprised to discover that this facility provides far fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than most other nursing homes. Lastly, we considered the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. This wasn't a strength for this nursing home. We found that just 3.6 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home. At most nursing homes, around half of their residents are able to return home so this is well below average.
