Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

While this facility earned a decent overall grade, its inspections score is notably better than its overall grade. Due to a strong inspection report this year, it received a strong score in that area with a grade of B+. Our inspection ratings account for a host of factors included in a facility's inspection reports. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the number and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with better scores in this area tend to have few severe deficiencies. This facility was assessed 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This tells you that the government inspectors didn't deem any of these deficiencies to create an immediate threat to patient health or safety. Remember that deficiency-free inspection reports are uncommon in the industry.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

This nursing home also received a favorable grade in our long-term care category. We gave this nursing home an above average grade of B in this category. When facilities receive a grade in this range in long-term care it typically means it has plenty of staff and is an overall good place to live on a permanent basis. After looking at the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination record. This nursing home vaccinated 94.28571 percent of its residents for pneumonia. Vaccines are vital to keeping residents healthy. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively 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 score consists of several subcategories, many of which are tied to levels of nurse staffing. This nursing home provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This figure is far below the national average. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility actually fared better in some of the quality-based metrics we assessed. It performed well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

Switching gears to our next area, this nursing home was awarded a respectable short-term care grade of C. In determining our short-term care scores, we assess the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The objective is to formulate a tool for sizing up the rehabilitation services of different nursing homes. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we looked at the percentage of residents that returned home from this nursing home. We found that 4.9 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was well below average.
