Facility Inspections

Grade: A

To pair with its relatively modest overall grade, we gave this nursing home an A for its inspection grade. This grade is far more impressive than the facility's overall grade. Our inspection scores are tied to many items found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places that excel in this category typically have very few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these facilities generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. Although this facility had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were serious based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

We also gave this facility an impressive score in long-term care. This facility earned a B+ in this area, which is one of our better scores. If you are looking for anything other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each nursing home's long-term care grades. Once we assessed the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 63.400578 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which happens to be a few points lower than we were hoping for but still a respectable figure. While its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we hoped for, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Sadly, this facility's next highest score is short-term care. Nevertheless, with a grade of D in this category, it still performed relatively badly. In the category of short-term care, we try to qualify measures of a facility's rehabilitation services. We assess a facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. Unfortunately, this facility was below average in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours offered to its residents based on the staffing figures we considered. The final statistic we looked at in this category is the percentage of patients who returned home from the facility. This facility struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 4.4 percent of its patients returning home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

This nursing home's worst category is nursing, which is the final category we analyzed. In this area, we gave this facility a grade of just D. We assessed the levels of nurses working for the nursing home, as well as the quantity of hours those nurses spent with patients, in determining our grade in this category. This nursing home offered a meager 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing grades. This nursing home performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good measures of the quality of nursing care.
