Facility Inspections

Grade: A

To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A for our inspections rating. These inspection ratings weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Fortunately, although this facility had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

Adding to this nursing home's list of achievements, it also was awarded a high-end long-term care grade. We awarded them a dominant grade of A- in this area. If you are seeking anything other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at long-term care ratings. In addition to assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 51.963047 percent of its residents. This is slightly less than we anticipated but still a decent figure. Although its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we like to see, at least this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facility's next best category was its nursing grade, where it received a grade of B-. While this didn't quite match its scores in some of the categories discussed above, this is still a decent score. Our nursing rating includes numerous datapoints. The most heavily weighted one is the number of hours nurses spent with residents. This facility provides only 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This is a somewhat alarming figure as it is well below the national average. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this nursing home surprisingly fared better in some of the quality measures we looked at. It performed well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care. In many cases, the quality of nursing care is just as important as the quantity of hours of care offered.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

Switching gears to our final category, this nursing home was given a respectable short-term care grade of C. In determining our short-term care grades, we look at a facility's levels of highly skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other highly skilled individuals. This category is generally a fair measure of the nursing home's rehabilitation. We were not able to find information on registered nurse or physical therapy staffing for this nursing home. Lastly, we assessed the number of residents that were able to return home from this facility. We found that 5 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was actually quite a bit below the national average.
