Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

We want to draw your attention to the fact that this nursing home really outperformed its overall grade in the area of inspections. In fact, it received a nearly flawless government inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our highest grades in that area with an A-. Inspection grades take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these issues by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Although this facility had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none were serious based on CMS' scale. A couple of minor deficiencies shouldn't stop you from considering a nursing home.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home's short-term care score appears to be one of its best grades. The nursing home received a grade of B- in this area. Our short-term care grade is generally used to grade a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation. In order to provide high-end rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must provide better levels of highly skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other types of therapists. In this nursing home's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than the typical facility. The last statistic we considered in this area is the number of residents who eventually returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 0 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

The next highest grade we gave this nursing home in any area came in the category of nursing, where we gave it a grade of B-. Our nursing grade is primarily associated with a nursing home's level of nurse staffing. 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. Finally, although this place got docked a bit for its nursing hours per resident, it excelled in some of our quality-based metrics. With fewer than five percent of its patients suffering from pressure ulcers, it performed well in this metric.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

This nursing home's worst category is long-term care, which is the last category we assessed. In this area, we awarded this nursing home a grade of just D. Facilities that do not score well in this category often don't provide as much nursing care and also may be lagging in some of the areas of routine medical care we looked at. After we finished assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses, we next considered the facility's vaccination statistics. Frankly, we were a bit worried that this nursing home vaccinated only 89.58333 percent of its residents for pneumonia. Surprisingly, this nursing home was actually decent at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had just 0.03 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This was its best feature in this category.
