Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

While this nursing home's overall grade was not a highlight, it actually excelled in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it an A- for that area, which is one of our best scores. Inspection scores take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this nursing home had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means that CMS didn't deem 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: B-minus

This facility's second highest area turned out to be long-term care. In that category, we awarded this nursing home a B-. In a long-term care environment, the primary goal is to maintain patients' quality of life and keep them safe. In addition to considering the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents, which is more than most nursing homes. This nursing home also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

Among this nursing home's several poor grades was its F in the area of nursing care. There are a variety of factors included in this grade. Many of the subcategories reflect levels of nurse staffing. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing scores. This nursing home performed well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these statistics to be good measures of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The last area we assessed is short-term care. This nursing home received a rock bottom grade of F in that area. In crafting these short-term care ratings, we analyze the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our objective is to devise a measure for sizing up the rehabilitation services of various nursing homes. With its poor rating in this area, we were not shocked to learn that this facility provides significantly fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other facilities. Lastly, we considered the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that just 3.9 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.
