Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

The primary reason this ended up being a decent nursing home is that it earned an excellent inspection score. Its inspection grade was far better than its overall grade. In the inspections category, we gave this facility an A-. Perhaps the most critical factor we look at in determining our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities with higher grades in this area most likely dodged the most severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. Fortunately, although this nursing home had a few minor dings on its report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G through L. This means that the government inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A few minor deficiencies shouldn't stop you from considering a nursing home.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

This nursing home also was given a favorable grade in our short-term care category. We gave this nursing home a better than average grade of B in this category. Short-term care scores are based in part on a nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled highly skilled professionals. This includes a broad spectrum of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, in addition to other types of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we assessed the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

This facility's next best category was its nursing grade, where it received a grade of C. Nursing ratings are mostly associated with the facility's level of nurse staffing. This particular nursing home provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This figure is far below average. Finally, although this nursing home got docked a bit for nursing hours, it excelled in a few of our quality-based metrics. With fewer than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed very well in this metric.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The last area we rated was long-term care. We gave it an abysmal F for this category, which is a very poor score. This is clearly a major concern. For patients looking for a permanent residence as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care is an important category. On top of assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 98.17073 percent of its patients. Surprisingly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility has less hospitalizations than most nursing homes. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.
