Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

While we were not high on this facility's overall grade, it received a very impressive inspection report this year. In fact, it received a nearly flawless inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our highest grades in that category with a grade of A-. Inspection ratings weigh several factors included in a facility's inspection reports. One key criteria we look at is the number and severity of deficiencies. You should avoid places with a bunch of deficiencies flagged. This place was assessed 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This means that CMS did not consider any of these deficiencies to cause an immediate threat to resident health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is always a good sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

Additionally, we awarded this nursing home a grade of B in our long-term care category. This happens to be one of our higher scores. In a long-term care environment, the primary objective is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. After we finished assessing the volume of care provided by nurses, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination records. This facility vaccinated 84.047264 percent of its patients for pneumonia. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Unfortunately, this nursing home's next best category is short-term care. However, with a D in this area, it still fared somewhat poorly. Our short-term care grades are probably more critical for people needing a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally requires higher levels of highly-skilled nursing. This includes not merely nursing services, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other types of therapy. With a grade of this caliber in this category, we were not shocked to find that this facility was below average in the two key staffing areas we focus on. The facility offered far fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than most other facilities. Finally, we looked at the number of residents who ultimately returned home from this facility. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

The next area we analyzed was nursing. This facility received a very poor grade of F in this area. Nursing scores are based in large part on nurse staffing levels. This facility offered a meager 0.2 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing ratings. This place performed well in terms of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
