Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

On top of having a decent overall grade, we also would like to point out that this place earned favorable health inspections in recent years. We gave it one of our better scores in that area, with a B+. This is a notably better score than the facility's overall grade. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating our inspection ratings. One of those factors is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more important than the number of deficiencies, as some are quite minor. Fortunately, although this nursing home had a few minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as 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 health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies should not stop you from considering a nursing home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

In addition, we also would like to draw your attention to the fact that this facility was awarded positive long-term care marks this year. We awarded them one of our more favorable scores in that category, with a grade of B. This proved to be the nursing home's second best score. When nursing homes receive a grade in this range in this category it typically means it has plenty of staff and is an overall good place to reside on a permanent basis. Once we looked at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination records. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its residents for pneumonia. Vaccines are vital to keeping patients out of the hospital. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.03 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

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 score features many datapoints. The most heavily weighted one is the number of hours nurses spent with patients. 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. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this nursing home actually excelled in some of the quality-based metrics we looked at. In fact, it performed well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these areas to be reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care. In many cases, the quality of nursing care is as important as the quantity of hours of care provided.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

This nursing home's least impressive area was short-term care, which is the final category we scored. We gave it an F for this area. Despite some decent grades in other categories, this grade is nevertheless disappointing so we felt obligated to make a note of it. In forming these short-term care grades, we quantify the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The objective is to formulate a barometer for comparing the rehabilitation services of various facilities. Based on its weak rating in this category, we were not surprised to discover this place offered substantially fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than most nursing homes. Finally, we assessed the number of residents that were able to return home from this nursing home. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 2 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.
