Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

Although we were not high on this place overall, we awarded it a B+ for our inspections rating. This grade is much better than the facility's overall grade. Arguably the most critical factor we look at in determining our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a facility's recent inspection reports. It is generally best to avoid facilities that had too many severe deficiencies. While this facility had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means that CMS didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home's next best area was short-term care. We gave it a B- in this area. This is essentially a slightly below average grade in this category. Short-term care grades are commonly employed to assess a nursing home's rehabilitation services. To have highly rated rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to provide better levels of highly skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other licensed professionals. In this nursing home's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the typical facility. The last metric we assessed in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 5.9 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is below average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

We awarded this facility a respectable grade in the area of nursing as well, with a grade of C. The nursing score considers a host of datapoints. The most important variable is the amount of time nurses spent with residents. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility surprisingly excelled in some of the quality measures we looked at. It scored well when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be reliable measures of the quality of nursing care. In many cases, the quality of nursing care is every bit as important as the number of hours of care provided.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The next area we rated was long-term care. This nursing home was given a very poor grade of F in that category. Facilities that receive this kind of score in this category likely don't provide the kind of consistent 24/7 care that some other facilities offer. Once we assessed the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then looked at the facility's vaccination data. Candidly, we were a bit worried that this nursing home vaccinated 81.17647 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is quite a few points less than average. To our surprise, this facility was actually decent at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had just 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This was its best feature in this category.
