Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

To go along with its favorable overall performance, we gave this place an A+ for the area of inspections. Inspection ratings weigh several factors, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these items by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this place had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G through L. This tells you the government inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

This nursing home was given impressive grades in the category of long-term care as well. Consequently, we awarded it one of our most dominant scores in that category with a area of A+. When nursing homes receive a score in this range in this category it generally means it has plenty of staff and is an overall good place to live on a permanent basis. Once we finished looking at the amount of nursing care, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 96.09375 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia can be a deadly ailment for nursing home residents so we prefer when a facility doesn't roll the dice on this issue. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

Turning to the area of nursing care, this was not one of this facility's strong suits. We awarded it a grade of D in this category. Clearly, this facility performed much better in the categories discussed above. In determining our nursing grades, we look at both nursing hours and the skill levels of the nurses. This nursing home offered only 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This is an alarmingly low total. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing grades. This nursing home performed well in terms of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The next area we assessed was short-term care, which is this nursing home's weakest category. We gave it an F in this area, which is certainly somewhat concerning. Our short-term care grades are meaningful for prospective residents needing rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically mandates more highly-skilled nursing services. This includes a wide scope of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. It appears that this nursing home was below average in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its residents based on the data we considered. Finally, we looked at the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. This was not a strength for this nursing home. We found that just 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most nursing homes, about half of their residents are able to return home so this is well below average.
