Facility Inspections

Grade: A

In addition to being a respectable nursing home overall, this facility really excelled in the category of inspections, where it received a grade of A. Few nursing homes performed better in this category. Our inspection scores are based on many datapoints found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities that receive favorable grades in this area typically have few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these places generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. While this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is always a good sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

This nursing home also received high marks in the area of long-term care, with a superb grade of A- in this category. When facilities receive a grade in this range in this category it generally means it has plenty of staff and is an overall good place to reside on a permanent basis. One of the datapoints we considered after nurse's aid hours is vaccinations. This nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccination to 99.59596 percent of its patients. This is a great way to minimize negative health outcomes for the aged 65 and up population. Finally, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

Moving on to another strength for this facility, it also received an elite nursing grade. We gave this facility an D. When calculating our nursing grades, we assess both staffing levels and the levels of licensure of those nurses. This facility offered only 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident daily. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing ratings. This nursing home performed well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The last area we scored is short-term care, which ended up being this facility's weakest category. Sadly, it received an F in this category, which is clearly concerning. Our short-term care grade is typically used to judge a facility's performance with rehabilitation. In order to have highly scored rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must offer higher levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other highly skilled individuals. Given its weak score in this category, we were not surprised to discover that this facility provides significantly fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than most other nursing homes. Lastly, we looked at the number of patients that were able to return home from this facility. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 3.9 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.
