Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

While we were not high on this nursing home's overall score, it actually received a very impressive inspection report this year. In fact, it received a nearly flawless inspection report this year. As a result, it earned one of our best grades in that category with an A-. Inspection ratings weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This nursing home was assessed 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This indicates that CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies to be an imminent risk to resident health or safety. A few minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

We also gave this nursing home a decent grade in the area of long-term care, where we gave it a B-. Our long-term care grades are more critical for folks in need of more traditional assistance related to personal care. In addition to looking at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 97.948715 percent of its patients. Finally, this nursing home was also able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

We also wanted to draw your attention to this facility's poor nursing grade where it received an F. There are a host of datapoints included in this grade. Most of the criteria relate to the quantity and quality of nurse staffing. This place provided a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing scores. This nursing home performed well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The last category we assessed is short-term care. Sadly, it received a lowly F in this area, which is a very poor grade. Our short-term care ratings are arguably most critical for folks in need of rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation typically utilizes more skilled nursing services. This includes not merely nursing, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other types of therapy. With a score in this range for this category, we weren't surprised to find this nursing home was below average in multiple staffing metrics we looked at. In fact, it offered substantially fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than most facilities. The last item we assessed in this area is the number of patients that eventually returned home from the nursing home. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 1.7 percent of its patients returning home. This was quite a bit below average.
