Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

Although we didn't give this facility a good overall score, we actually gave it a strong grade in the area of inspections, where it earned a B+. Inspection ratings account for a host of factors found on a facility's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we look at is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. You generally want to avoid facilities with too many deficiencies flagged. Although this place had a few deficiencies on its report, none of them were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. A couple minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

In addition, we gave this facility a grade of B in our short-term care category. This happens to be one of our more favorable grades. In calculating our short-term care ratings, we look at the facility's levels of skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other licensed professionals. This area is frequently a meaningful assessment of a nursing home's ability to rehabilitate patients. It doesn't look like this facility provided information on registered nurse or physical therapist staffing. The last metric we considered in this category is the number of residents who eventually returned home from the facility. We found that 6.8 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

We gave this facility a grade of just D for our nursing rating. The nursing score consists of many components, most of which are associated with nursing hours. This facility averaged a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This is not a very impressive figure. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing ratings. This nursing home fared well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Turning to our fourth category, this facility did not fare very well in this category either. With a rock bottom grade of F in long-term care, this is about as as uninspiring as it gets. In a long-term care environment, the primary goal is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate residents. In addition to assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Fortunately, this nursing home provided the vaccine to 95.80645 percent of its residents, which is a very respectable total. Surprisingly, this place also fared well at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.
