Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

We would like to point out that this facility's inspection rating exceeded its overall score. This facility earned a B+ in this area, which is a quality score. Inspection ratings are tied to many pieces of information located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes that excel in this category tend to have very few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these facilities generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. While this nursing home had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G through L. This tells you that CMS didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies should not stop you from considering a nursing home.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

Additionally, we also wanted to draw your attention to the fact that this facility was given positive short-term care marks in this assessment. We awarded them one of our more impressive grades in this category, with a grade of B. This proved to be the nursing home's second strongest score. In computing our short-term care grades, we look at a facility's levels of highly skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other highly skilled individuals. This rating is generally a fair assessment of the nursing home's ability to rehabilitate patients. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we considered the number of residents who who were able to eventually return home from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

In addition, we awarded this nursing home a grade of B in our nursing category. This is one of our better grades. The nursing grade assesses a handful of datapoints, but the most important one is the quantity of nurse hours per patient per week. This facility provided 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This nursing home performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a facility has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can often be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

This facility's least impressive category is long-term care, which is the final area we scored. Unfortunately, we gave it a lowly F in this category. Despite multiple acceptable scores in other areas, this grade is still disappointing so we felt obligated to point it out. For patients looking for a permanent residence as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care is an important category. One of the criteria we considered in addition to nursing hours was vaccines. Fortunately, this facility provided the pneumonia vaccination to 95.62842 percent of its patients. To our surprise, this facility also fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had just 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.
