Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

We want to draw your attention to the fact that this nursing home outperformed its overall grade in the category of inspections. In fact, it received a nearly flawless government inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our best scores in this category with an A-. Our inspection ratings weigh a host of factors found on a facility's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we rely on is the number and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with better grades in this area generally have very few severe deficiencies. While this facility had a few minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G through L. This means 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. Remember that deficiency-free inspection reports are rare in this industry.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facility's long-term care grade is one of its more favorable grades. The nursing home was given a grade of B- in this area. For prospective residents seeking a permanent residence rather than rehabilitation, long-term care is a very important category. Once we looked at the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination records. This facility vaccinated 99.196785 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is better than most nursing homes. Finally, this facility was also able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home's next best category was nursing. We awarded it a grade of B- in this category. This is basically a middle of the road grade in this category. The nursing grade includes many factors, however, the paramount one is the quantity of nurse hours per patient per week. This facility averages 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident each day, which is well below average. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures. Although this place got docked a bit for its nursing hours, it actually excelled in a few of these quality-based metrics. With fewer than five percent of its patients sustaining pressure ulcers, it fared remarkably well in this metric. This is generally an indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can frequently be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as by having a protocol of moving residents even once per day.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The next category we analyzed was short-term care. In that category, we gave this nursing home a grade of C. In our short-term care grade, we strive to create a sound gauge for rehabilitation. In this process, we analyze a facility's scope of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. Unfortunately, it doesn't appear that this nursing home submitted registered nurse or physical therapist staffing data. Lastly, we considered the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most facilities, closer to half of their patients are able to return home so this figure is below average.
