While we graded this facility incredibly poorly overall, it received a fairly respectable inspection report this year. As a result, it received a decent grade in that category with a score of B-. Our inspection ratings are based on several pieces of information located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are an important thing to look for on these reports. Severe deficiencies indicate a risk to patient safety. This place was hit with 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered to be major deficiencies. This means that CMS didn't deem any of these deficiencies to cause an immediate threat to patient safety or health. A few minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility also didn't grade out terribly in the category of long-term care. Indeed, we gave it a grade of B- in that category, which ended up being another one of its better grades. Long-term care grades assess a facility's assistance with daily living instead of the skilled therapy and healthcare services that are critical to a rehabilitation facility. After we finished assessing the quantity of nursing care, we turned to the facility's vaccination statistics. We were optimistic to learn that this facility vaccinates 100 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. Although it had 1.97 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, its risk adjusted statistic was better than most facilities since it had more complicated patients.

This category is typically a useful assessment of the nursing home's ability to rehabilitate patients. Given its grade in this area, we were not stunned to find that this facility was subpar in terms of its quantity of registered nurse hours offered to its residents. Frankly, this was about what we expected here. The final metric we looked at in this area is the number of residents who who were able to eventually return home from the nursing home. This facility struggled quite a bit in this area, with just 31.2 percent of its patients returning home. Unfortunately, this was well below the national average.
Moving on to the next area, this nursing home really did not perform well here either. Due to a poor grade of F in nursing, this is really as as uninspiring as it gets. The nursing score consists of a handful of factors, many of which are tied to nursing hours. In this facility's case, quantity of care does not appear to be the problem. According to its staffing data, this place provided an average of 3.9 hours of nursing care per patient each day, which was above the national average. While it fared well in terms of nursing hours, this place earned poor scores in the quality-based measures we looked at in determining our nursing ratings. We looked at the percent of patients sustaining major falls and pressure ulcers. This nursing home was at approximately 1.5 times the national average in both data points. This is likely not a very good sign when you consider that many falls are believed to be preventable with better nursing care. These data points helped pull down this facility's nursing score quite a bit.
