Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

It should be noted that this nursing home's inspection rating outpaced its overall score. In fact, we gave it a grade of B+ for its inspections grade, which is one of our better scores. Inspection scores weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this facility had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are found in categories G through L. This means the inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. The fact that none of the deficiencies were severe made us feel better about this inspection report.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

We also wanted to emphasize the fact that this facility earned an B in the area of nursing. When determining our nursing ratings, we analyze both the number of hours nurses spend with residents and the training levels of those nurses. This particular nursing home provided 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also looked at certain nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing grades. These include minimizing residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We look at these datapoints as predictive indicators of the quality of nursing care offered, since better care tends to reduce these problems.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

We also awarded this nursing home a positive score in short-term care. This nursing home earned a B in this area, which turns out to be one of our more impressive scores. Our short-term care ratings are based in part on the nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled nursing services. This includes a vast spectrum of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, in addition to other variations of therapy. Unfortunately, it doesn't appear that this nursing home submitted registered nurse or physical therapist staffing data. Finally, we considered the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This place outperformed the majority of facilities in the nation in this area with 52.3 percent of its patients returning home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The next category we analyzed was long-term care. We awarded this nursing home a B- in this category. In the area of long-term care, we focus more on the amount of care offered by a nursing home, as opposed to more healthcare-oriented services. After looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination statistics. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is higher than the vast majority of nursing homes. Lastly, we looked at its number of hospitalizations. Here we found that this facility had 3.46 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Although this figure is somewhat concerning, this statistic can be skewed for some facilities due to the preexisting medical conditions of patients.
