Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

While we were not high on this nursing home's overall grade, it actually received a very impressive inspection report this year. In fact, it received an excellent inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our best scores in that category with a grade of A-. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing these inspection ratings. One critical factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some of these are relatively minor. Although this nursing home had some deficiencies on its report, none were serious based on CMS' scale. A couple minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

This nursing home's next best area ended up being its long-term care score, where it was given a C. For residents seeking a permanent residence as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care grades are a key measure. In addition to considering the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Fortunately, this facility administered the vaccine to 99.62825 percent of its residents, which is a very solid figure. This facility keeps its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

Turning to the area of nursing care, this facility received a grade of just D in this category. There are a host of criteria included in this grade. Many of the factors relate to the quantity of nurse staffing. With just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient each day, this place's nurse staffing levels were significantly below average. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing scores. This facility performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these datapoints to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The next area we scored was short-term care, which turned out to be a weak spot for this nursing home. We awarded this facility a grade of just D for our short-term care category. Our short-term care ratings are presumably most critical for those requiring rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation generally mandates higher levels of highly-skilled nursing. This means not only nursing, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Based on its abysmal rating in this area, we weren't stunned to discover this nursing home offers substantially fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. Finally, we assessed the number of patients that ultimately were able to return home from this facility. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 4.4 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.
