Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

This nursing home's overall grade was bolstered by the fact that it has earned favorable inspections in recent years. We gave them a strong score in that category, with a B+. This is a notably better grade than the facility's overall grade. Our inspection scores weigh several factors included in a facility's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we consider is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Places with higher grades in this area usually have few of these severe deficiencies. Although this facility had a few deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were serious based on CMS' scale. A few minor deficiencies shouldn't lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

We also awarded this nursing home a favorable grade in long-term care. This facility received a B in this area, which is one of our more impressive grades. Long-term care grades of this caliber generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. After we finished assessing the volume of nursing care, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This facility vaccinated 95.59748 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is very impressive. Pneumonia is too frequently a dangerous illness for nursing home patients so we like it when a facility does not take any chances. Finally, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facility's next best category grade came in the area of nursing. In that category, we gave this nursing home a grade of B-. There are several datapoints included in this grade. Many of the factors are tied to the quantity of nurse staffing. This place provides only 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This is a somewhat uninspiring figure as it is well below the national average. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility surprisingly fared better in some of the quality-based metrics we looked at. It performed well in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these areas to be measures of the quality of nursing care. In many cases, the quality of nursing care is as important as the quantity of hours of care offered.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The last category we scored is short-term care. We awarded it a C in this category. This is a fair grade in this category. Our short-term care scores are presumably most important for patients needing rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation typically mandates more highly-skilled nursing services. This means not merely nursing services, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. Unfortunately, we found that this place provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other nursing homes. The more important thing is determining what effect this had on quality of care. Lastly, we assessed the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most facilities, closer to half of their residents are able to return home so this figure is below average.
