Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

It should also be noted that this nursing home's inspection rating outpaced its overall grade. In fact, we awarded it a B+ for its inspections grade, which is one of our better scores. These inspection scores take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these issues by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this facility had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. A few minor deficiencies shouldn't lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

This nursing home also received a strong nursing grade. In fact, we awarded it a grade of B in that category, which is one of our better scores. Our nursing score is mostly associated with a facility's nurse staffing. This nursing home averages 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This place performed very well in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

This facility's next highest area was its long-term care grade, where it was awarded a grade of C. Long-term care grades are important for people in need of non-healthcare services such as personal care. After considering the amount of nursing care, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination records. We were optimistic to discover that this facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients for pneumonia. Lastly, this place was also able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The final area we analyzed is short-term care. This facility received a grade of C for the area. Our short-term care scores are based in part on a nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This means a vast range of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Unfortunately, this nursing home was below average in terms of its number of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its patients based on the metrics we assessed. Lastly, we considered the percentage of patients that were able to return home from this facility. We found that 4 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was quite a bit below average.
