Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

While we were not high on this nursing home overall, we awarded it an A- for our inspections rating. This score is significantly more impressive than the nursing home's overall score. Inspection ratings are tied to many items located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are a key item to look for on these reports. You should especially avoid nursing homes that have severe deficiencies linked to risks to resident well being. While this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none were severe based on CMS' scale. A couple minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

We also want to point out that this facility received a decent grade in our nursing category. We awarded it a grade of C in the area. Our nursing grade is primarily associated with a facility's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home averages just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Finally, although this facility got dinged a bit for nursing hours, it actually excelled in a few of our quality-based measures. With fewer than five percent of its residents experiencing pressure ulcers, it fared remarkably well in this area.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

This facility's second least favorable category is short-term care, where it earned a grade of just D in that category. This is a relatively poor grade. In the area of short-term care, we seek to qualify measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We look at the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. Based on its grade in this area, we weren't surprised to find that this place was well below average in terms of the quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours offered to its patients based on the metrics we looked at. Honestly, this was about what we expected to find. Finally, we considered the percentage of patients that returned home from this facility. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 4.8 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was well off the national average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Moving on to our final category, we awarded this facility a grade of D in the area of long-term care. This was the nursing home's weakest category grade. In a long-term care environment, the primary goal is to keep patients healthy and safe. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate residents. In addition to looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 98.15078 percent of its patients. Surprisingly, this place was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Sadly, some of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.
