Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

While we were not high on this nursing home's overall performance, it actually received an impressive inspection report this year with few dings from the applicable government inspectors. As a result, it received one of our better grades in that area with a grade of B+. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating these inspection scores. One critical factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more important than the number of deficiencies, as some end up being relatively minor. While this place had some minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as 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 aren't necessarily the end of the world.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

We also want to point out that this facility received a decent grade in our nursing category. We awarded it a grade of C in the area. Nursing ratings are largely tied to the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Lastly, despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours, this place performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is generally a reliable indicator that a place has sufficient quality controls in place.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The next highest category we awarded this nursing home in any area came in the area of long-term care, where we gave it a grade of C. In a long-term care setting, the primary goal is to keep patients healthy and safe. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. One of the criteria we considered in addition to nursing hours is vaccinations. Thankfully, this facility administered the pneumonia vaccination to 97.38806 percent of its patients. This nursing home also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Turning to the fourth category, we gave this nursing home a grade of D in our short-term care category. This is the facility's weakest category rating. Our short-term care ratings are thought to be most meaningful for those needing rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation typically mandates additional highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes not merely nursing services, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other types of therapy. With a grade in this range for this category, we were not shocked to discover this nursing home was well below average in the two key staffing metrics we assess. It offered far fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most nursing homes. The final datapoint we looked at in this category is the percentage of patients that eventually returned home from the nursing home. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 4.9 percent of its residents returning home.
