Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

We would like to point out that this nursing home's inspection grade exceeded its overall grade. This facility earned a B+ in this category, which is a quality score. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating these inspection grades. One of those factors is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more important than the number of deficiencies, as some can be quite minor. Although this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none were severe based on CMS' scale. A couple minor deficiencies should not lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

Additionally, we also would like to draw your attention to the fact that this facility was awarded favorable short-term care marks in this assessment. We gave them one of our higher grades in this category, with a B. This proved to be the facility's second best grade. Short-term care scores are critical for residents seeking rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally mandates more highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means a broad spectrum of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Unfortunately, we weren't able to find registered nurse or physical therapy staffing data for this facility. Lastly, we assessed the number of residents that returned home from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

This facilities third most favorable category was long-term care. We gave it a grade of C in this area. This is basically a slightly below average score in this category. Our long-term care ratings are more important for patients in need of more conventional services related to activities of daily living. On top of considering the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Frankly, we were a bit alarmed this nursing home gave the vaccine to just 53.42466 percent of its patients. Fortunately, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

The final category we assessed was nursing. We awarded this facility a grade of C in that area. We scrutinized the qualifications of nurses at the facility, in addition to the quantity of hours the nurses worked with patients, in computing our score in this category. This nursing home averages just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this place actually fared better in some of the quality measures we looked at. In fact, it performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.
