Facility Inspections

Grade: B

This nursing home's overall grade was bolstered by the fact that it has earned favorable inspections in recent years. We awarded them one of our better scores in that category, with a B. This is a much better score than the facility's overall score. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining our inspection scores. One critical factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some of these are quite minor. This place was hit with 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered severe. This indicates that the government inspectors didn't consider any of these deficiencies an immediate risk to resident health or safety. A couple of minor deficiencies shouldn't lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

One of the other reasons we rated this nursing home so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing grade. In that area, we gave this nursing home a grade of B-. Nursing scores are heavily correlated with nurse staffing levels. This place provides only 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This is a somewhat uninspiring figure as it is well below average. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics. While this facility got dinged a bit for nursing hours, it excelled in a few of these quality measures. With less than five percent of its residents suffering from pressure ulcers, it did well in this subcategory. This is typically an indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can generally be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as employing a policy of turning patients at least once a day.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The next area we graded was short-term care. In that category, we awarded this nursing home a decent grade of C. In determining our short-term care scores, we assess a nursing home's levels of highly skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other types of therapists. This rating is frequently a useful assessment of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We were surprised to find that this facility was below average in the two key staffing areas we focus on. In fact, it provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other nursing homes. The last measure we considered in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to return home from the facility. We found that just 0 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The last category we rated was long-term care. We awarded this facility a grade of C in that area. For prospective patients in need of a permanent place to live as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care grades are very important. One of the factors we considered in addition to nurse's aid hours was vaccinations. We were a bit alarmed this facility administered the pneumonia vaccination to only 80.995476 percent of its patients. Fortunately, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
