Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

This facility's best category grade came in the category of government inspections. In this area, we gave this facility a B+. It actually outperformed most facilities in this category. Our inspection ratings account for several factors found on a facility's inspection report. One key criteria we look at is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with higher grades in this category usually have few of these severe deficiencies. Fortunately, although this nursing home had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G through L. This means that CMS didn't deem 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 stop you from considering a nursing home.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facility's short-term care grade appears to be one of its better scores. The nursing home was awarded a B- in this category. Short-term care grades are typically employed to grade a facility's performance with rehabilitation. To have good rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to feature better levels of skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other highly skilled individuals. Unfortunately, we found that this place provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other nursing homes. Finally, we assessed the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This proved to be more of a strength for this facility. In fact, we found that it outperformed the majority of facilities in the nation with 50.8 percent of its patients returning home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

This facility's next best category was its nursing grade, where it received a grade of C. In computing our nursing ratings, we weigh both the number of hours nurses spend with residents and the training levels of the nurses. This facility provided 3.8 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based metrics, such as preventing major falls. This place performed admirably in this statistic.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Moving on to the final category, we awarded this nursing home a D in long-term care. This is the facility's worst category rating. For prospective patients looking for a permanent residence rather than skilled nursing, long-term care is a very important category. Once we finished looking at the quantity of nursing care, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination record. We were optimistic to discover that this nursing home vaccinated 97.91667 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Lastly, we looked at the nursing home's number of hospitalizations. We found that this place fared much worse with 5.18 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Sadly, this statistic is more than twice the national average.
