Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

This nursing home earned an inspection score which is better than its overall score. Inspection grades are associated with the nursing home's recent health inspections. We awarded this facility a very solid grade of B+ in this category. Inspection ratings weigh a host of factors found on a facility's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we consider is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Places with better grades in this category tend to have very few of these severe deficiencies. While this nursing home had some minor dings on its report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you that the 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 minor dings are not necessarily the end of the world.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Another one of this nursing home's more impressive category scores was in the area of short-term care. In that area, we gave this nursing home a grade of B+. Short-term care grades are crucial for individuals seeking rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually mandates more highly-skilled nursing services. This means a broad scope of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final datapoint we assessed in this area is the percentage of residents that who were able to eventually return home from the nursing home. We found that 5.6 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

One of this facility's better category grades was in the area of nursing care. In that area, we gave this facility a grade of B-. Nursing grades are heavily correlated with quantity of nursing care available. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility surprisingly excelled in some of the quality-based metrics we assessed. In fact, it scored well when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care. In some cases, the quality of nursing care is as important as the number of hours of care offered.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The next area we graded is long-term care, ended up being this nursing home's worst area. We awarded this nursing home a D in that area. This really is one of the few dings in a strong profile. In a long-term care environment, the facility's primary goal is to maintain patients' quality of life and keep them safe. Once we assessed the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 96.759254 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is better than the majority of nursing homes. Surprisingly, this facility also fared well at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Sadly, a few of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.
