Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

While this nursing home's overall grade was decent, it really fared well in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A- for that category, which is one of our best scores. These inspection scores weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these issues by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this place had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are 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 safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies should not lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home's long-term care grade is one of its higher scores. The nursing home was given a B- in this area. In our long-term care category, we look at the volume of services offered by a facility, as well as a handful of quality statistics. After we finished looking at the amount of care provided by nurses, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination statistics. We were pleased to find that this facility vaccinates 99.5671 percent of its residents against pneumonia. This facility keeps its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home's nursing grade appears to be one of its better features. The facility received a grade of B- in this category. Our nursing score includes many components, however, the paramount one is the number of nurse hours spent with patients. This place provides only 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This is a somewhat uninspiring figure as it is well below average. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality measures. While this facility got docked a bit for nursing hours, it actually excelled in a few of these quality-based metrics. With less than five percent of its residents experiencing pressure ulcers, it did very well in this subcategory. This is typically an indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can typically be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as by employing a policy of moving a resident more often.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

This facility's weakest area is short-term care, which is the final area we analyzed. Unfortunately, we gave it an F for this category. In spite of multiple solid grades in other categories, this score is nevertheless disappointing so we wanted to point it out. With our short-term care category, we attempt to craft a meaningful barometer for rehabilitation services. In this process, we look at the nursing home's level of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. With its score in this area, we weren't stunned to learn that this nursing home was well below average in terms of its quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its residents based on the measures we assessed. Frankly, this was what we expected here. The final measure we assessed in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 4.2 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these subpar metrics was damning for this nursing home's short-term care grade.
