Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

This facility's overall score was bolstered by the fact that it has earned favorable government inspections in recent years. We awarded it a strong score in that area, with a B+. This is a notably better score than the nursing home's overall grade. Our inspection grades account for several factors found on a facility's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we rely on is the number and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with better grades in this category usually have few of these severe deficiencies. This facility was assessed 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be severe. This indicates that CMS didn't consider any of the deficiencies to be an imminent risk to patient health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies shouldn't stop you from considering a nursing home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

One of this nursing home's better category scores was in the area of long-term care. This proved to be its second best category. In that category, we gave this facility a B-. Our long-term care scores are more important for folks needing more conventional assistance associated with personal care. We were missing a few datapoints in determining this nursing home's long-term care rating, so this grade might not be as accurate as some of our other category scores.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

This nursing home's third most favorable area was short-term care. We gave it a grade of C in this area. This is essentially a middle of the road grade in this area. Our short-term care scores are probably more important for residents needing rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation generally utilizes more highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means not merely nursing services, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. Unfortunately, we found that this place provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other facilities. The last measure we considered in this area is the percentage of patients that were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that just 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

The next area we analyzed is nursing, which is this facility's least impressive area. We gave this facility a D in that category. In calculating our nursing grades, we analyze both the number of hours nurses spend with residents and the skill levels of those nurses. This particular facility averaged just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This statistic is significantly below average. Lastly, to round out our nursing grade, we turn to some quality-focused statistics in rounding out our nursing ratings. Specifically, we look at the percent of residents who sustained pressure ulcers and major falls. We look at these metrics as good measures of the quality of nursing care, since better care tends to reduce these problems.
