Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

We want to draw your attention to the fact that this facility outperformed its overall grade in the category of inspections. In fact, it received a nearly flawless inspection report this year. As a result, we gave it one of our best scores in this area with an A-. These inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these issues by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This facility received 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This tells you that the government inspectors didn't consider any of these deficiencies to cause an immediate risk to resident health or safety. A few minor deficiencies shouldn't lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

We also gave this facility a positive score in short-term care. This nursing home earned a B in this category, which turns out to be one of our more impressive grades. Short-term care ratings are based in part on a facility's quantity of highly-skilled highly skilled professionals. This means a broad spectrum of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, in addition to other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. However, according to the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last metric we assessed in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We found that 4.9 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

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. Nursing ratings are largely based on the facility's level of nurse staffing. This place provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This is a lower figure than we are used to seeing. Lastly, our nursing grades also consider quality-based metrics, such as preventing major falls. Despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours, this nursing home actually performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is typically an indicator that a place has sufficient quality controls in place. Some falls can be avoided if a facility provides enough nurses aids to assist its patients.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The next area we looked at was long-term care. We gave it an F in this area, which is a poor score. This is obviously a major concern. Long-term care grades in this range generally are a bad sign for the quantity and quality of care provided by nurses and aids, as well as the levels of routine medical care available. After considering the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination record. We were disappointed to learn that this facility vaccinated just 90.862946 percent of its residents for pneumonia. Surprisingly, this place actually fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This is its best feature in this category.
