Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

While we were not high on this place overall, we awarded it a B+ for our inspections category. This score is far more impressive than the facility's overall score. Our inspection grades are tied to datapoints found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are an important item to look for on these inspections. You should especially avoid nursing homes that have severe deficiencies associated with risks to resident well being. While this nursing home had some deficiencies on its report, none were serious based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is always a good sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

In addition, we also wanted to point out that this nursing home received strong long-term care marks this year. We awarded them one of our more impressive grades in this area, with a B. This proved to be the nursing home's second highest grade. Long-term care scores of this caliber generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. One of the datapoints we considered after nursing hours was vaccinations. This nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccine to 92.82297 percent of its patients. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it 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 number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The third area we graded was short-term care, where this nursing home received a grade of C in this category. Our short-term care grade is commonly used to measure a nursing home's rehabilitation services To have highly rated rehabilitation services, facilities generally must feature higher levels of highly skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other highly skilled individuals. Unfortunately, this facility was below average in terms of its number of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its patients based on the measures we assessed. The final item we looked at in this area is the number of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We discovered that just 5.8 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is actually below average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

The final area we graded is nursing. This nursing home received an abysmal grade of F in this area. Nursing ratings are heavily correlated with nurse staffing levels. With a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient each day, this place's nurse staffing levels were quite a bit below the national average. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing scores. This facility fared well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
