Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

This facility earned a solid overall grade as described above, but we really wanted to point out its nearly flawless inspection reports in recent years. We awarded them an A- in this category. Our inspection scores are tied to many datapoints located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places that score well in this area tend to have few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these nursing homes generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. Although this nursing home had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were serious based on CMS' deficiency scale. A couple of minor deficiencies shouldn't lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facility received high grades in nursing as well. In fact, it received one of our highest scores in that category with an B-. Our nursing rating assesses quite a few components, but the primary consideration is the quantity of nurse hours per patient per week. This facility provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This is a low total compared with most nursing homes. Lastly, despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours per resident, this place performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is typically a reliable indicator that a nursing home has quality controls in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

This facility's third best area is short-term care. In that category, we gave this nursing home a grade of C. Short-term care ratings are critical for individuals seeking rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually mandates additional highly-skilled nursing. This includes a vast spectrum of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Unfortunately, this nursing home was below average in terms of its level of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its patients based on the measures we assessed. Finally, we considered the number of residents who eventually returned home from this facility. We found that 5.8 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was well below the national average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The final category we rated was long-term care. We awarded it a grade of C in this area. This is basically a middle of the road grade in this category. Our long-term care grades are more important for residents needing more traditional services associated with activities of daily living. Once we looked at the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination statistics. We were a bit bothered by the fact that this facility vaccinated 72.75542 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is several points less than what we expected. On a more positive note, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
