Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

In addition to being a respectable facility overall, this facility also excelled in the category of inspections, where it earned a grade of A-. Few facilities performed better in this category. Arguably the most critical factor we consider in determining our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places with better scores in this category typically dodged the most severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. Although this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were serious based on CMS' deficiency scale. A couple minor deficiencies should not stop you from considering a nursing home.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home received its next most favorable category grade in the area of short-term care. We gave this facility a B- in this category, which is an acceptable grade. In the category of short-term care, we endeavor to assess measures of a facility's rehabilitation services. We assess the facility's skilled nursing services, including the ones performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. We found that this nursing home was below average in the two key staffing areas we focus on. The facility supplied fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. The final statistic we considered in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the facility and return home. We discovered that just 6 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is below average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The next highest area we gave this facility in any area came in the area of long-term care, where we gave it a C. If you are seeking services other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each facility's long-term care ratings. In addition to looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 98.0456 percent of its patients. This place keeps its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

Moving on to the final area, we awarded this nursing home a grade of D for our nursing category. This was the nursing home's weakest category grade. Our nursing grade is largely associated with a facility's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient each day. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing ratings. This nursing home performed well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.
