Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

The primary reason this facility received a decent overall grade is its excellent inspections in recent years. We gave it one of our higher grades in that area, with an A-. This is a much better score than the place's overall grade, which was decent but certainly not elite. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining our inspection ratings. One of those factors is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some are relatively insignificant. Fortunately, although this nursing home had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you the inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A few minor deficiencies should not lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

In addition, we gave this facility a B in our short-term care category. This is one of our more favorable grades. Our short-term care grades are based in part on a facility's quantity of highly-skilled highly skilled professionals. This includes a broad range of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. It does not look like this nursing home provided information on registered nurse or physical therapist staffing. Finally, we looked at the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 5.8 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

Moving on to another strength for this facility, it also earned an elite nursing score. We gave this nursing home an D. Our nursing score focuses on the facility's nurse staffing levels. We factor in both the levels of training of the nurses and the amount of time spent with patients. This place offered only 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is well below average. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Moving on to the last category, we gave this facility a grade of D in our long-term care category. This is the nursing home's worst category grade. For residents seeking a permanent place to live as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care grades are an important measure. On top of assessing the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients, which is better than the average nursing home. To our surprise, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home has fewer hospitalizations than the average nursing home. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.
