Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

We would like to point out that this nursing home's inspection score exceeded its overall grade. This facility earned a grade of B+ in this area, which is one of our better grades. Inspection scores weigh several factors, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these issues by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Fortunately, although this nursing home had a few minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you that CMS did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A few minor deficiencies shouldn't lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

One of this facility's higher category scores was in the category of long-term care. This ended up being its second most respectable category. In that category, we awarded this nursing home a B-. If you are seeking anything other than rehabilitation, you should take a close look at long-term care scores. One of the statistics we considered after nurse's aid hours is vaccines. Fortunately, this nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccination to 99.53488 percent of its patients. Lastly, this place was also able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

This facility's next best category was its nursing grade, where it received a grade of C. The nursing rating is based on quite a few subcategories, however, the most important one is the quantity of nurse hours spent with patients. This nursing home provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other nursing homes. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility fared better in some of the quality-based metrics we assessed. It performed well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these areas to be indicators of the quality of nursing care. In many cases, the quality of nursing care is as important as the quantity of hours of care provided.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

This facility's weakest category is short-term care, which is the final category we analyzed. In this category, we gave this facility a D. Our short-term care ratings are presumably most important for individuals needing rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation generally utilizes more skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes not only nursing services, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other types of therapy. With its score in this area, we weren't surprised to find that this place is well below average in terms of the number of registered nurse and physical therapy hours offered to its residents based on the measures we looked at. Frankly, this was about what we expected here. The last datapoint we assessed in this category is the number of patients that were able to return home from the nursing home. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 4.4 percent of its residents returning home.
