Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

This facility's best category grade came in the category of health inspections. In that category, we gave this facility a B+. It outperformed most facilities in this area. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining our inspection ratings. One of those factors is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these are quite insignificant. While this place had a few deficiencies on its report, none were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. A couple minor deficiencies shouldn't lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

This facility also was awarded a positive grade in our short-term care category. We awarded this facility an above average grade of B in that area. Our short-term care grades are vital for patients needing rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally utilizes higher levels of highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means a vast range of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last metric we looked at in this category is the number of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We found that 5.5 percent of this nursing home's residents were able to return home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

Next, we looked at the nursing category where we awarded this nursing home a grade of C, which is a decent grade. There are quite a few criteria within this area. Many of the criteria relate to levels of nurse staffing. This place averages 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient daily, which is a very low figure. Lastly, despite not having the highest total nursing hours per resident, this facility actually performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is often an indicator that a facility has sufficient quality controls in place.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The final area we rated was long-term care. This nursing home was awarded a C for this area. If you are seeking services other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at long-term care ratings. On top of looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents. Finally, this facility was also able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
