Facility Inspections

Grade: A

While we were not high on this facility's overall score, it actually received a very impressive inspection report this year. In fact, it received an excellent inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our highest scores in that category with an A. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating these inspection ratings. One of those factors is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies are quite insignificant. Although this place had a few deficiencies on its report, none of them were severe based on CMS' scale. A couple minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home's second best category ended up being long-term care. In that area, we gave this nursing home a grade of B-. With our long-term care score, we analyze the volume of services provided by a nursing home, along with some qualitative statistics. In addition to considering the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 93.11927 percent of its patients. This is slightly less than we were hoping for but still a respectable percentage. On a more positive note, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The next category we analyzed is short-term care, in which this facility received an F. Short-term care grades are often employed to gauge a facility's performance with rehabilitation In order to provide high-end rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to offer higher levels of skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other licensed professionals. Based on its score in this category, we weren't stunned to find that this facility was well below average in terms of the number of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its patients based on the data we looked at. Honestly, this was what we expected to find. Finally, we assessed the percentage of patients that eventually returned home from this facility. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was well off the national average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

The last area we assessed was nursing. This facility was given an abysmal grade of F in this area. The nursing score considers a host of subcategories. The most important factor is the quantity of hours nurses spend with patients. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing grades. This nursing home fared well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
