Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

To pair with its relatively modest overall grade, we awarded this facility an A- for our inspections rating. This is far more impressive than its overall grade. These inspection ratings weigh several factors, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can find more information about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Although this place had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none were serious based on CMS' deficiency scale. The fact that none of the deficiencies were severe made us feel better about this inspection report.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

This facility also performed well in the area of short-term care. For this reason, we awarded it a grade of A- for that area, which is one of our best scores. Our short-term care grade is commonly used to score a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation. In order to offer highly graded rehabilitation services, facilities generally must feature higher levels of highly skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other types of therapists. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we assessed the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 6.3 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

Next, we looked at the nursing category where we awarded this nursing home a grade of C, which is a decent grade. Our nursing grade focuses on the nursing home's nurse staffing levels. We consider both the levels of skill of those nurses as well as the quantity of hours spent with patients. This facility provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality measures. Although this facility got docked a bit for its nursing hours per resident, it excelled in a few of these quality measures. With less than five percent of its residents suffering from pressure ulcers, it performed well in this area. This is generally an indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can many times be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as by having a protocol of turning a resident more frequently.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The final category we assessed was long-term care. We gave this facility a grade of D in long-term care, rendering this the facility's weakest grade. When facilities receive this kind of score in long-term care it is typically a bad sign for patient care and it may indicate that the nursing home is not as well-staffed. On top of looking at the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. We found that this nursing home gave the vaccine to only 89.13043 percent of its patients, which is slightly concerning. To our surprise, this nursing home was actually decent at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had just 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This was its best score in this category.
