Facility Inspections

Grade: B

This nursing home earned an inspection grade which is better than its overall grade. Inspection scores are based on a facility's recent health inspections. We awarded this facility a very solid grade of B in this category. Inspection scores account for several factors included in a nursing home's inspection reports. One key criteria we rely on is the number and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with better scores in this area tend to have very few of these severe deficiencies. While this place had a few deficiencies on its report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. Remember that deficiency-free inspection reports are uncommon in this industry.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facility's short-term care rating appears to be one of its respectable scores. The nursing home received a B- in this area. Our short-term care grades are arguably most meaningful for those requiring rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation typically mandates higher levels of skilled nursing services. This includes not only nursing, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. We were not able to locate information about this nursing home's registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. Finally, we looked at the number of patients that were able to return home from this facility. We found that 5.2 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was well below the national average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facility's next best category grade came in the area of nursing. In that category, we gave this nursing home a grade of B-. We assessed the skill-level of nurses at the nursing home, as well as the number of hours those nurses were with patients, in determining our score in this category. This facility averages 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident each day, which is well below average. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this place excelled in some of the quality measures we assessed. In fact, it scored well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care. In some cases, the quality of nursing care is every bit as important as the number of hours of care provided.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The final category we scored was long-term care. In this category, we awarded this nursing home a B-. If you are seeking anything other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at long-term care ratings. In addition to considering the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 99.11308 percent of its patients, which is better than most nursing homes. Finally, this facility was also able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
