Facility Inspections

Grade: A

To pair with its relatively modest overall grade, we awarded this nursing home an A for its inspection grade. This is far more impressive than the facility's overall score. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing our inspection ratings. One critical factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some can be relatively insignificant. Although this nursing home had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. A couple of minor deficiencies should not stop you from considering a nursing home.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home's short-term care grade ended up being one of its better features. The nursing home was awarded a grade of B- in this area. In the area of short-term care, we seek to evaluate indicators of a facility's rehabilitation services. We assess the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. We found that this nursing home was below average in the two key staffing areas we focus on. The facility supplied fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other nursing homes. It is still important to determine whether this is adversely impacting the quality of care. Lastly, we looked at the number of patients that were able to return home from this facility. We found that 5.1 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was actually quite a bit below average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

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 C. When determining our nursing grades, we analyze both the number of hours nurses spend with residents and the levels of licensure of those nurses. This place averages just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis, which is a very low figure. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this nursing home fared better in some of the quality-based metrics we assessed. It scored well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be indicators of the quality of nursing care. In many cases, the quality of nursing care is just as important as the number of hours of care provided.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The last area we looked at was long-term care, which was this facility's weakest category. We gave this nursing home a grade of D in that category. For long-term care residents, the primary objective is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. On top of considering the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients, which is higher than most nursing homes. To our surprise, this place also fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had just 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.
