Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

While we were not high on this nursing home overall, we awarded it a B+ for our inspections category. This score is much more impressive than the facility's overall grade. Inspection scores weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this facility had a few minor dings on its report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G through L. This means that the government inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A few minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

Additionally, we also would like to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received impressive long-term care marks this year. We awarded them one of our more impressive scores in that area, with a B. This proved to be the facility's second best grade. In a long-term care setting, the primary objective is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. After looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This facility vaccinated 91.01796 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is a bit lower than we anticipated but still a reasonably acceptable percentage. Lastly, we looked at its number of hospitalizations. We found that this facility had 2.86 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. While this wasn't as impressive as some of its other scores in this area, this statistic may be skewed for some facilities due to some of the medical complexity of patients.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

We were surprised to find that this nursing home also excelled in the area of nursing. We awarded it an impressive grade of D for that category, which is one of our best grades. We weighed the skill-level of nurses working for the nursing home, as well as the number of hours those nurses worked with patients, in calculating our grade in this category. In this facility's case, quantity of care does not appear to be the problem. According to its CMS reports, this facility provided an average of 3.9 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis, which was above the national average. Despite performing well in terms of nursing hours, this place didn't perform as well in the quality-based measures we looked at in calculating our nursing scores. We looked at the percentage of residents sustaining pressure ulcers and major falls. This facility was above the national average in both statistics. This may be a bad sign when you consider that many bed sores and falls are preventable with better nursing care. Unfortunately, these datapoints pulled down this nursing home's nursing rating significantly.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The final category we rated was short-term care, in which this facility was given a bottom of the barrel grade in this area also. Unfortunately, we gave it an F for this category, which is definitely somewhat alarming. Our short-term care scores are believed to be more critical for those in need of rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation typically requires more skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes not merely nursing, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. Given its score in this category, we weren't surprised to discover that this facility is well below average in terms of the number of registered nurse and physical therapy hours offered to its patients based on the metrics we assessed. Honestly, this was about what we expected to find. The final item we looked at in this category is the number of residents that eventually returned home from the facility. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 43.9 percent of its patients returning home.
