Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

While we didn't give this nursing home a good overall grade, we actually gave it a strong grade in the area of inspections, where it received a B+. Arguably the most significant factor we consider in calculating our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. It is typically in your best interest to avoid facilities that had a long list of severe deficiencies. While this place had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are found in categories G through L. This tells you 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 aren't necessarily the end of the world.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The next best category we awarded this facility in any category came in the area of long-term care, where we gave it a C. Our long-term care ratings are meaningful for prospective residents seeking non-healthcare services such as personal care. Once we looked at the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination record. This nursing home vaccinated 96.44444 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is better than the average nursing home. Lastly, this nursing home was also able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

This nursing home's next most favorable area was its short-term care grade, where it was given a grade of C. Short-term care grades are typically employed to score a nursing home's rehabilitation services To have highly graded rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to offer higher levels of highly skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other types of therapists. Unfortunately, we found that this place provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other facilities. Finally, we considered the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 5.6 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most facilities, closer to half of their residents are able to return home so this figure is below average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

Moving on to the last area, we awarded this facility a grade of D in our nursing category. This was the nursing home's worst category grade. When computing a nursing home's nursing grade, we assess the number of hours nurses spend with residents and the levels of training of those nurses. This facility provided only 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This is not a very impressive figure. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing grades. This place performed well in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
