Facility Inspections

Grade: A

While this facility's overall grade was not bad, it really excelled in the category of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A for that category, which is one of our best scores. Our inspection grades weigh several factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One key criteria we look at is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with higher scores in this category typically have few of these severe deficiencies. While this nursing home had a few minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G through L. This means that CMS didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies should not lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

This facility also received a strong grade in our long-term care category. We gave this nursing home a better than average grade of B in this category. Facilities that receive this kind of score in this category tend to provide consistent 24/7 care to ensure residents are well cared for. One of the criteria we considered on top of nursing hours was vaccinations. This nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccine to 83.81743 percent of its patients. Although its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we hoped for, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

Next we looked at nursing grades, where this nursing home received an F, which is a rock bottom grade. This area was definitely not a strength for this facility. Our nursing rating is based on many datapoints, however, the paramount one is the number of nurse hours spent with patients. This facility provided a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This figure is significantly 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.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Switching gears to our final area, this facility did not fare very well. Due to an abysmal grade of F in short-term care, this was its worst grade. With our short-term care category, we strive to create a fair barometer for rehabilitation. In doing so, we assess a nursing home's scope of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. Based on its score in this area, we were not surprised to discover that this place is well below average in terms of the quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its patients based on the measures we looked at. Frankly, this was what we expected here. Finally, we looked at the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that just 4.2 percent of this facility's patients returned home.
