Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

We would like to point out that this facility's inspection rating exceeded its overall score. This facility earned a B+ in this category, which is one of our better grades. Inspection ratings are tied to many datapoints found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places that excel in this category have few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these facilities generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. This particular nursing home received 3 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a solid inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

Additionally, we gave this facility a B in our short-term care category. This happens to be one of our better scores. Our short-term care ratings are believed to be more critical for people needing rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation usually requires higher levels of skilled nursing services. This includes not just nursing services, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like this facility submitted data regarding its registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. Finally, we assessed the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 6.1 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

This nursing home's nursing grade appears to be one of its better features. The facility received a grade of C in this category. When calculating a facility's nursing rating, we assess the quantity of hours nurses are caring for patients and the levels of training of the nurses. This place provides only 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This is a somewhat uninspiring figure as it is well below average. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this place excelled in some of the quality measures we looked at. It scored well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these areas to be reliable measures of the quality of nursing care. In some cases, the quality of nursing care is every bit as important as the quantity of hours of care offered.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The next category we graded was long-term care, which turned out to be a weak link for this nursing home. We gave this facility a D in our long-term care category. In a long-term care setting, the facility's primary goal is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. On top of assessing the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients. Surprisingly, this facility was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Sadly, a few of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.
