Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

To go along with its decent overall score, we awarded this facility an A+ for our inspections rating. This is far more impressive than its overall score. Perhaps the most critical factor we consider in calculating our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities with better scores in this category most likely avoided the more severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. This place was assessed 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be major deficiencies. This means that CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies to cause an imminent threat to resident health or safety. A few minor deficiencies should not lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

This facility also was awarded an impressive short-term care score. As a matter of fact, we gave it a B in that category, which happens to be one of our more favorable scores. In determining our short-term care scores, we scrutinize the facility's levels of skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other types of therapists. This score is generally a meaningful measure of a nursing home's ability to rehabilitate patients. It doesn't look like this nursing home submitted information on registered nurse or physical therapist staffing. The final item we assessed in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the facility and return home. We discovered that 6.1 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

We gave this nursing home just a D for our long-term care score. This is not one of our better scores. In a long-term care setting, the nursing home's primary objective is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. In addition to considering the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. Fortunately, this facility provided the vaccine to 97.97571 percent of its patients, which is an above average percentage. To our surprise, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home had less hospitalizations than the average nursing home. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

The final area we graded is nursing. It received an F in this category, which is a poor score. This is obviously a major concern. Our nursing score consists of a handful of subcategories, most of which are tied to nursing hours. This nursing home averaged only 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing grades. This nursing home fared well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these metrics to be measures of the quality of nursing care.
