Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

In addition to being a respectable nursing home overall, this facility really excelled in the area of inspections, where it received a grade of A+. Few facilities performed better in this area. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating these inspection grades. One key factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more important than the number of deficiencies, as some can be quite insignificant. While this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were severe based on CMS' scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is always a good sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

We also gave this nursing home a strong score in long-term care. This facility earned a grade of B+ in this category, which happens to be one of our more impressive scores. Facilities that receive this kind of score in long-term care tend to provide consistent 24/7 care to ensure residents are kept in good health. In addition to considering the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home provided the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients. Vaccines are vital to keeping patients healthy. This facility was also able to keep its patients out of the hospital. Although it had 2.33 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, its risk adjusted statistic was better than most facilities since it had more complex patients.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

Next, we looked at the nursing category where we gave this nursing home an F. This is certainly not one of this facility's better areas. Our nursing grade looks at the nursing home's nurse staffing levels. We factor in both the levels of training of those nurses and the number of hours spent with residents. This nursing home averaged only 2 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This is not a very impressive figure. This facility also had terrible marks in some of the quality-based metrics to pair with its weak nursing hours. We looked at the percent of patients sustaining pressure ulcers and we were disappointed. This nursing home was at roughly 1.5 times the national average in this metric.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The final category we assessed is short-term care. We gave it an F for this area, which is a poor score. This is obviously a major concern. Short-term care scores are based on the nursing home's quantity of skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This includes a vast spectrum of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, not to mention other forms of therapy. Not surprisingly, we found that this place provides significantly less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than a typical nursing home. Lastly, we assessed the number of patients that were able to return home from this facility. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 32.5 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.
