Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

Although we did not rate this facility favorably overall, we want to draw your attention to its nearly flawless government inspections in recent years. We awarded them an A- in this category. Inspection scores take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these issues by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Fortunately, although this facility had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G through L. This means that CMS didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

One of this nursing home's more favorable category grades came in the area of short-term care. This ended up being its second most respectable category. In that area, we awarded this facility a C. Short-term care ratings are based in part on a facility's quantity of skilled highly skilled professionals. This means a vast range of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other types of therapy. We found that this facility was below average in the two key staffing areas we looked at. In fact, it offered fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other nursing homes. It is important to determine whether this is adversely impacting the quality of care. The final metric we assessed in this category is the percentage of residents who who were able to eventually return home from the facility. We found that it fared much better in this metric with 60.2 percent of its patients returning home. At most facilities, fewer than half of their short-stay residents are able to return home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

We were surprised to find that this facility also excelled in the area of nursing. We awarded it an D for that category, which is one of our highest grades. The nursing rating consists of a handful of subcategories, most of which are associated with nursing hours. This place offered a meager 2.7 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Unfortunately, this facility also had terrible marks in some of the quality-based metrics to pair with its weak nursing hour totals. We looked at the percentage of residents experiencing pressure ulcers and we were quite disappointed. This place was at roughly 1.5 times the national average in this area. This is a bad sign in light of the fact that many pressure ulcers could be avoided with better nursing care. This statistic helped pull down this nursing home's nursing rating significantly.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Turning to the fourth category, this nursing home didn't fare very well in this category either. Due to a very poor grade of F in long-term care, this is really as bad as it gets. In a long-term care environment, the nursing home's primary objective is to keep patients healthy and safe. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate residents. After considering the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 96.76259 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is higher than the majority of nursing homes. Surprisingly, this facility also fared well at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had just 1.57 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.
