Facility Inspections

Grade: A

While we were not very complementary of this facility's overall grade, it received a very impressive inspection report this year. In fact, it received a nearly flawless inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our highest scores in that category with an A. Inspection ratings are tied to many items found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are a key item to look for on these inspections. Most importantly, you should avoid nursing homes with severe deficiencies linked to endangerment of patients. This nursing home received 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered severe. This means that CMS did not consider any of these deficiencies an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A few minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

This facilities second most favorable category was long-term care. We awarded it a C in this area. This is basically a middle of the pack grade in this area. For prospective residents seeking a permanent residence as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care grades are a key measure. In addition to considering the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Candidly, we were a bit worried that this facility administered the vaccine to a relatively low 86.666664 percent of its patients. Nevertheless, this facility was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Sadly, this facility's third best score was short-term care. As it turns out, with a grade of D in this area, it still fared somewhat badly. In calculating these short-term care ratings, we analyze the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The purpose is to create a measure for comparing the rehabilitation services of different facilities. With its grade in this category, we were not stunned to find that this nursing home is well below average in terms of the number of physical therapy and registered nurse hours offered to its residents based on the metrics we looked at. Honestly, this was what we expected here. The last metric we considered in this category is the number of patients that were able to return home from the facility. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 4.9 percent of its residents returning home. Unfortunately, this was well below average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

The final area we scored is nursing, where this facility was given a bottom of the barrel score in this area as well. Unfortunately, we gave it an F for this category, which is obviously somewhat alarming. Our nursing rating features a host of data points. The most important factor is the quantity of hours nurses spend with residents. With just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident daily, this place's nurse staffing levels were far below average. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This place fared well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these statistics to be indicators of the quality of nursing care.
