Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

It should be noted that this facility's inspection rating outpaced its overall grade. In fact, we gave it a B+ for its inspections grade, which is one of our better scores. Arguably the most significant factor we consider in computing our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Nursing homes with higher scores in this area most likely dodged the more severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. This facility was assessed 7 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered severe. This indicates that the inspectors didn't deem any of these deficiencies an immediate risk to patient safety or health. A few minor deficiencies shouldn't stop you from considering a nursing home.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Another one of this nursing home's more favorable category grades came in the category of short-term care. In that category, we gave this nursing home a grade of B+. It actually performed better than most facilities in this category. Our short-term care ratings are arguably more meaningful for individuals needing rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation usually utilizes more highly-skilled nursing. This means not only nursing services, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. Unfortunately, we were not able to find information about this nursing home's registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. The last item we assessed in this area is the percentage of residents who returned home from the facility. We found that 5.8 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

One of this facility's better category grades was in the area of nursing care. In that area, we gave this facility a grade of C. Nursing ratings are largely based on a nursing home's nurse staffing. This place provides only 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This is a somewhat uninspiring figure as it is well below the national average. Lastly, although this facility got dinged a bit for nursing hours per resident, it excelled in some of our quality metrics. With less than five percent of its patients suffering from pressure ulcers, it fared well in this subcategory.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The last area we scored was long-term care, which was this nursing home's least impressive area. We gave this facility a D in this area. If you are seeking anything other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at long-term care ratings. One of the statistics we considered after nursing hours was vaccines. Fortunately, this facility administered the pneumonia vaccine to 100 percent of its residents. To our surprise, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.03 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility has fewer hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. Sadly, some of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.
