Facility Inspections

Grade: A

To go along with its decent overall score, we awarded this nursing home an A for its inspection grade. This is far more impressive than its overall grade. These inspection grades take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Fortunately, although this nursing home had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are found in categories G through L. This means CMS didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Remember that deficiency-free inspection reports are uncommon in this industry.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facility's second best category grade came in the area of nursing. In that category, we gave this nursing home a grade of B-. Nursing ratings are mostly associated with a nursing home's nurse staffing. This facility averages just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient daily, which is not an impressive total. Finally, our nursing ratings also consider quality-based assessments, such as preventing major falls. Despite not having the highest total nursing hours per resident, this facility performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is typically a good indicator that a nursing home has sufficient quality controls in place. Many falls can be avoided if a facility provides enough nurses aids to assist its patients.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

We also awarded this nursing home a middle of the road score in the area of long-term care, where we gave it a B-. Long-term care grades are based in part on the nursing home's quantity of care. This includes a vast scope of personal care services, ranging from help with activities of daily living to routine healthcare services. On top of assessing the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 80.51643 percent of its patients. This is significantly below what we were hoping for. Nevertheless, this place keeps its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The last area we looked at was short-term care. We awarded it a grade of C in that category. This is a decent grade in this category. Short-term care ratings are meaningful for prospective residents in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally utilizes higher levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means a wide scope of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. We weren't able to find information on registered nurse or physical therapy staffing for this nursing home. The last measure we assessed in this area is the number of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is actually below average.
