Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

The primary reason this facility received a decent overall score is its impeccable government inspections in recent years. We awarded it one of our higher grades in that area, with an A-. This is a notably better grade than the facility's overall grade, which was decent but certainly not elite. These inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these issues by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Fortunately, although this nursing home had some minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means the government inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A couple of minor deficiencies shouldn't lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

Turning to an additional strength for this nursing home, it also received a high-end short-term care grade. Indeed, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A-. Short-term care scores are meaningful for prospective residents needing rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally requires additional skilled nursing. This includes a wide spectrum of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, this nursing home offers both physical therapists and registered nurses. Not all facilities offer both. Lastly, we looked at the number of residents that returned home from this facility. We found that it fared as well as just about any nursing home in the country in this area with 66.3 percent of its residents returning home. Most facilities are below 50 percent in this statistic.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

This nursing home's next best category was nursing. We awarded it a grade of C in this category. This is basically a middle of the road grade in this category. Nursing scores are largely associated with the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This facility provided just 3.2 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Finally, we also baked some quality measures into our nursing grades. This nursing home was relatively weak in a few of the major areas we focus on, with below average scores for minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. These areas are generally good indicators of the quality of nursing care offered.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The next area we graded is long-term care, which ended up being this nursing home's weakest category. We gave it an abysmal F for this area, which is clearly a major concern. If you are looking for services other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each facility's long-term care scores. One of the factors we considered on top of nursing hours was vaccinations. Thankfully, this nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccination to 100 percent of its patients. Surprisingly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.39 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home has less hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.
