Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

While this nursing home earned a decent overall score, its inspections score is notably better than its overall grade. Due to a strong government inspection report this year, it earned one of our better scores in that category with a B+. Our inspection grades account for a host of factors included in a facility's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we weigh heavily is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Places with better grades in this area usually have few of these severe deficiencies. While this place had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G through L. This means that the government inspectors 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 should not lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

This nursing home also was awarded a positive short-term care grade. Indeed, we gave them a grade of B in that category, which is one of our more favorable scores. In calculating our short-term care grades, we scrutinize the nursing home's levels of skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists respiratory therapists and other types of therapists. This rating is considered to be a meaningful assessment of the nursing home's rehabilitation. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not all facilities employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we looked at the number of patients who ultimately were able to return home from this facility. We found that 5.1 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facility's next best category grade came in the area of nursing. In that category, we gave this nursing home a grade of B-. Our nursing score features a number of factors. The most heavily weighted factor is the amount of time nurses spend with patients. This facility provides only 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This is a somewhat concerning figure as it is well below the national average. Lastly, despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours per resident, this facility performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is generally an indicator that a facility has quality controls in place.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The final category we looked at was long-term care, which ended up being this facility's least impressive category. It received a lowly F for this category, which is clearly concerning. For patients looking for a permanent place to live rather than skilled nursing, long-term care is a very important category. On top of assessing the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 97.74775 percent of its residents. To our surprise, this place was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had just 0.03 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Sadly, a few of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.
