Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

While we were not high on this nursing home overall, we awarded it an A- for our inspections rating. This score is far more impressive than the nursing home's overall score. Our inspection grades weigh a host of factors included in a facility's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we rely on is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. You generally want to avoid places with too many deficiencies flagged. Fortunately, although this place had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are found in categories G through L. This means CMS didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A few minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

We also awarded this facility a middle of the pack score in the area of long-term care, where we awarded it a grade of C. Long-term care grades focus on a nursing home's personal care rather than the skilled nursing and medical services that are critical to a rehabilitation facility. After looking at the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination record. We were pleased to discover that this nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients against pneumonia. The last datapoint we assessed is the facility's hospitalization rate. We found that this nursing home had 1.91 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is not too far off the national average.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

We also gave this facility a middle of the road score in the area of short-term care, with a grade of C. Our short-term care scores are considered to be most critical for individuals requiring rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation usually requires more highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes not only nursing, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, this nursing home offers both physical therapists and registered nurses. Not all facilities offer both. Finally, we considered the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This place outperformed most facilities in this area with 57 percent of its patients returning home. This really bolstered its score in this area.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

Moving on to our fourth category, this nursing home didn't perform very well in this category either. With a bottom of the barrel grade of F in nursing, this is about as terrible as it gets. When calculating a facility's nursing grade, we look at the number of hours nurses spend with patients and the level of licensure of the nurses. This nursing home averaged a meager 3.1 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. To pair with its low totals in the area of nursing hours per resident, this nursing home also didn't fare as well in the quality-based measures we looked at in computing our nursing ratings. We looked at the percent of patients sustaining major falls and pressure ulcers. This facility had more falls and pressure ulcers than the average facility.
