Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

Although we did not rate this facility favorably overall, we want to draw your attention to its excellent health inspections in recent years. We awarded them an A- in this category. Our inspection grades are tied to pieces of information found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are an important thing to look for on these inspections. Most importantly, you should avoid nursing homes that have severe deficiencies associated with endangerment of patients. This place was assessed 11 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This indicates that CMS didn't consider any of these deficiencies to be an immediate risk to patient safety or health. A few minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

This nursing home's second best category was short-term care. We gave it a C in this category. This is basically a slightly below average score in this category. In determining these short-term care scores, we assess the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our purpose is to formulate a tool for sizing up the rehabilitation services of nursing homes. We found that this nursing home was below average in the two key staffing areas we assessed. The facility supplied fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other facilities. It is important to determine whether this is adversely impacting the quality of care. The final measure we looked at in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the facility and return home. We discovered that just 5.2 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is below average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

In addition, we gave this facility an F in the area of nursing care. We scrutinized the levels of nurses at the nursing home, as well as the quantity of hours the nurses spent with patients, in calculating our score in this area. This place provided only 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This is an alarmingly low total. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing scores. This facility performed well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The next category we scored was long-term care. This facility received a poor grade of F in that area. When nursing homes receive this type of score in long-term care it is often a bad sign for patient care and it may indicate that the facility is not as well-staffed. In addition to assessing the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 90.32258 percent of its residents. This is significantly below what we expected. Surprisingly, this facility was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home has fewer hospitalizations than the average nursing home. This is its best feature in this category.
