Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

The primary reason this facility received a decent overall score is its excellent government inspections in recent years. We gave them one of our higher grades in that area, with an A+. This is a much better grade than the facility's overall score, which was decent but not in the elite range. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating our inspection scores. One critical factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies are quite insignificant. While this place had a few deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is always a good sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

We also gave this facility an impressive grade in long-term care. This facility received a grade of B+ in this category, which is one of our higher scores. For prospective residents seeking a permanent place to live as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care grades are very important. After considering the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 93.3526 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is a few points less than we expected but still a respectable percentage. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.04 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

This nursing home wound up receiving a a terrible score in our short-term care category. It was given an F in this area. Short-term care grades are generally used to assess a nursing home's rehabilitation services In order to provide high-end rehabilitation services, facilities generally must have better levels of skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other licensed professionals. With its grade in this area, we weren't stunned to find that this place is well below average in terms of the quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours offered to its residents based on the measures we assessed. Finally, we looked at the number of residents that eventually returned home from this facility. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 4.6 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

Switching gears to our last area, this facility did not fare well. With a very poor grade of F in nursing, this was this nursing home's weakest area. Our nursing score focuses on the nursing home's nurse staffing levels. We look at both the levels of training of those nurses and the quantity of hours spent with patients. This place averaged a meager 0 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This is an alarmingly low total. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing scores. This facility performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these data points to be good measures of the quality of nursing care.
