Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

While this facility's overall grade was decent, it really fared well in the category of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A- for that category, which is one of our best scores. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating these inspection ratings. One key factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more important than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies end up being quite minor. While this place had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none were serious based on CMS' deficiency scale. A couple of minor deficiencies should not lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

This nursing home also was awarded a strong grade in our short-term care category. We gave this nursing home an above average grade of B in that area. Our short-term care grade is commonly used to judge a nursing home's rehabilitation services. In order to offer highly rated rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to provide better levels of highly skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other types of therapists. It does not appear that this facility submitted data regarding its registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. Lastly, we considered the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 5.9 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facility's next most favorable area is long-term care. In that category, we gave this facility a grade of B-. In determining our long-term care grades, we scrutinize the personal care received by a facility's patients. After considering the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 96.37883 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is higher than the average nursing home. This facility 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 number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

The next area we graded is nursing, which ended up being this nursing home's worst category. Sadly, it received an F for this area, which is obviously very concerning. The nursing score assesses many subcategories, but the primary one is the level of nurse hours per patient per week. This facility averaged a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient daily. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing ratings. This facility fared well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.
