Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

In addition to being a respectable facility overall, this place also excelled in the category of inspections, where it received an A+. Few facilities performed better in this category. Inspection ratings weigh several factors found on a nursing home's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we rely on is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with higher grades in this category typically have few of these severe deficiencies. This place received 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This indicates that the government inspectors did not consider any of these deficiencies to be an imminent risk to resident health or safety. Remember that deficiency-free inspection reports are rare in this industry.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facility's long-term care rating is one of its better grades. The facility was given a grade of B- in this area. In determining our long-term care ratings, we analyze the facility's ability to maintain its permanent residents' health and quality of life. In addition to considering the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 98.110466 percent of its patients. Finally, this facility was also able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The third category we analyzed is short-term care, where this facility was awarded a grade of B- in this area. Our short-term care scores are based on a nursing home's quantity of skilled nursing services. This means a wide spectrum of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, not to mention other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we looked at the number of patients that who were able to eventually return home from this facility. We found that 5.5 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was actually quite a bit below average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

Switching gears to our final area, this facility really didn't fare well. With a rock bottom grade of F in nursing, this is this facility's weakest category. When calculating our nursing grades, we look at both nursing hours and the training levels of those nurses. This facility provided only 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident each day. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing ratings. This nursing home performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
