Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

While we were fairly low on this facility overall, we awarded it an A- for our inspections rating. This score is significantly more impressive than the nursing home's overall grade. These inspection ratings take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these issues by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this place had some deficiencies on its report, none were severe based on CMS' scale. A couple minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

One of this facility's more respectable category scores came in the area of long-term care. This wound up being its second best category. In that area, we gave this nursing home a C. In a long-term care setting, the primary goal is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. In addition to considering the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. Candidly, we were a bit concerned this nursing home gave the vaccine to only 71.38047 percent of its residents. Nevertheless, this place also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 1.53 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

We also wanted to point out that this nursing home received an F for its nursing grade. Our nursing score looks at the facility's nurse staffing levels. We factor in both the levels of licensure of those nurses as well as the number of hours spent with residents. This nursing home offered just 2.6 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This figure is far below average. In addition to receiving below average marks for total nursing hours, this facility was a bit less impressive in some of the quality-based metrics we looked at in computing our nursing grades. We looked at the percent of residents experiencing pressure ulcers and found that this nursing home was at roughly 150 percent of the national average in this statistic.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The next area we assessed was short-term care. We gave it an abysmal F for this area, which is a rock bottom grade. Short-term care grades are based on a facility's quantity of skilled nursing services. This includes a broad spectrum of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other types of therapy. In this nursing home's case, we found that it provides less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. Finally, we considered the number of residents that who were able to eventually return home from this facility. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 37.4 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.
