Facility Inspections

Grade: C

Although we did not have many positive things to say about this nursing home's overall score, it did receive a somewhat respectable inspection report this year. It received a decent score in this area with a score of C. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating our inspection grades. One critical factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these are relatively insignificant. This nursing home had 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to find that none were category G through L deficiencies. This indicates CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies to be an imminent danger to patient safety or health. Finally, CMS flagged this nursing home for possible abuse or neglect. This is not what you want to see. We advise you to direct your search elsewhere.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

One of this facility's higher category scores came in the area of short-term care. This proved to be its second most respectable category. In that category, we awarded this facility a C. In determining these short-term care grades, we analyze the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The purpose is to devise a scale 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 focus on. It supplied fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. Lastly, we assessed the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 4.5 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most facilities, closer to half of their patients are able to return home so this figure is below average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

We awarded this facility a respectable grade in the area of nursing as well, with a grade of C. Our nursing rating includes many subcategories, but the primary one is the quantity of nurse hours spent with patients. This facility provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Lastly, while this nursing home got docked a bit for nursing hours per resident, it actually excelled in a few of our quality-based measures. With fewer than five percent of its residents experiencing pressure ulcers, it performed well in this metric.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The last area we assessed was long-term care, which was a weak link for this nursing home. We awarded this nursing home a grade of D for our long-term care category. For prospective residents seeking a permanent place to live rather than skilled nursing, long-term care grades are an important measure. One of the criteria we considered on top of nursing hours is vaccines. Thankfully, this facility provided the pneumonia vaccination to 100 percent of its residents. To our surprise, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home has less hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. Sadly, a few of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.
