Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

Although we did not rate this facility highly overall, we want to point out its excellent government inspections in recent years. We awarded them an A- in this category. These inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these items by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Fortunately, although this place had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are found in categories G through L. This tells you that the inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

We also awarded this nursing home a respectable grade in the category of long-term care, where we awarded it a grade of C. In computing our long-term care grades, we look at the personal care received by the facility's residents. One of the factors we considered in addition to nursing hours was vaccinations. Thankfully, this facility administered the pneumonia vaccine to 95.03546 percent of its residents. Finally, we looked at the nursing home's number of hospitalizations. Here we found that this nursing home had 2.31 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Unfortunately, this figure was not quite as favorable than its other scores in this category.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

Unfortunately, this facility only received a grade of D for its nursing grade, which was actually one of its better category grades. In determining our nursing ratings, we assess both staffing levels and the training levels of those nurses. According to CMS records, this nursing home averaged 4 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This was actually above the national average. Keep in mind, however, that when we compute our nursing grades, we apply more weight to hours performed by nurses with a higher level of skill. Despite being above average in terms of nursing hours, this nursing home had abysmal scores in some of the quality-based measures we looked at in calculating our nursing grades. For starters, we looked at the percent of residents sustaining pressure ulcers. This facility was at more than double the national average in this statistic. This is quite alarming when you consider that many bed sores are believed to be preventable with better nursing care. This ended up sealing the nursing home's fate of receiving a very poor nursing grade.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The next category we assessed was short-term care, was this nursing home's worst area. We gave this facility a grade of D in that category. Our short-term care grades are probably more meaningful for folks in need of rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation usually mandates higher levels of highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means not only nursing, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home offers substantially less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than a typical facility. Finally, we assessed the percentage of residents that ultimately returned home from this facility. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 43.3 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.
