Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

One of the reasons this turned out to be a decent nursing home is it earned a favorable inspection grade. In that category, we awarded this facility a B+. Inspection grades account for several factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we rely on is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with better grades in this area typically have few severe deficiencies. Fortunately, although this nursing home had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you the government inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. The fact that the deficiencies were relatively minor leaves us less concerned with this inspection report.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

This facility also excelled in our nursing category, where it received an B+. Few places fared better in this category. Our nursing score is primarily associated with a facility's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed very well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The next most favorable area we gave this nursing home in any category came in the area of short-term care, where we gave it a B-. In our short-term care rating, we strive to create a meaningful gauge for rehabilitation. In this process, we look at the nursing home's offerings of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. We weren't able to track down information about this nursing home's registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. Finally, we looked at the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 3.8 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most facilities, closer to half of their patients are able to return home so this figure is below average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The final area we analyzed was long-term care, which ended up being this facility's least impressive category. It received a lowly F in this category, which is obviously very concerning. Facilities that do not fare well in this category often don't provide as much nursing care and also may be lagging in some of the areas of routine personal care we assessed. Once we looked at the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination records. We were not able to track down information about this nursing home's vaccination rates. Surprisingly, this place actually fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had just 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This was its best feature in this category.
