Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

While we were not high on this nursing home overall, we gave it a grade of B- for inspections. This score is better than this facility's overall score. Inspection ratings are tied to many datapoints located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are a key thing to look for on these reports. Severe deficiencies indicate a threat to resident safety. Fortunately, although this facility had a few minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility was cited by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. We would not recommend this facility under any circumstance.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

We also want to point out that this facility received a decent grade in our nursing category. We awarded it a grade of B- in the area. Nursing ratings are primarily tied to the facility's level of nurse staffing. This particular facility provided just 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This figure is significantly below average. Lastly, despite not having the highest total nursing hours per resident, this nursing home performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is generally a reliable indicator that a place has sufficient quality controls in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The next category we looked at is short-term care, where this facility was awarded a grade of B- in this category. Short-term care grades are often used to gauge a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation To have highly rated rehabilitation services, facilities generally must have higher levels of skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other types of therapists. We found that this nursing home was below average in the two key staffing areas we looked at. In fact, it provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other nursing homes. It is still important to determine whether this is adversely impacting the quality of care. The last item we assessed in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 6.1 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is actually below average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

This facility's worst category was long-term care, which is the last category we assessed. For this area, we awarded this nursing home a D. If you are looking for services other than rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each nursing home's long-term care grades. After considering the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then looked at the facility's vaccination statistics. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is higher than most nursing homes. Surprisingly, this place was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.
