Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

The primary reason this nursing home received a decent overall grade is its impeccable government inspections in recent years. We awarded them one of our higher grades in that category, with an A-. This is a much better score than the place's overall score, which was decent but certainly not elite. Inspection ratings weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This particular nursing home received 3 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a solid inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

Additionally, we gave this nursing home a B in our long-term care category. This is one of our higher scores. When nursing homes receive a grade in this range in long-term care it typically means it's well-staffed and is an overall good place to reside on a permanent basis. After looking at the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination data. This facility vaccinated 99.06542 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is better than the vast majority of nursing homes. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The third area we looked at was short-term care, where this nursing home was awarded a grade of C in this category. In our short-term care rating, we try to forge a sound gauge for rehabilitation. In doing so, we analyze a facility's scope of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. In this nursing home's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than the typical facility. The final measure we considered in this area is the percentage of patients that ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that just 4.8 percent of this facility's patients returned home. This figure was below the national average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

Switching gears to our fourth area, we awarded this facility a grade of D in our nursing category. This was the facility's least impressive category grade. When determining a facility's nursing rating, we assess the number of hours nurses are caring for residents and the levels of training of those nurses. This place averaged a meager 0.2 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is well below average. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing scores. This facility performed well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these data points to be indicators of the quality of nursing care.
