Facility Inspections

Grade: A

To pair with its relatively modest overall grade, we gave this nursing home an A for its inspection grade. This grade is far more impressive than the facility's overall grade. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining these inspection scores. One key factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be relatively minor. While this nursing home had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G through L. This tells you the 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 made us feel better about this inspection report.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

Additionally, we also would like to note that this facility received positive short-term care marks in this assessment. We gave them one of our more favorable scores in this area, with a B. This turned out to be the nursing home's second strongest grade. Our short-term care grades are probably more important for people in need of rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation generally mandates additional skilled nursing services. This includes not merely nursing services, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we assessed the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 5.7 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

Next, we looked at the nursing category where we awarded this nursing home a grade of B-, which is a decent grade. Our nursing grade features many subcategories. The most important one is the quantity of hours nurses spent with patients. This nursing home averages just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident each day, which is a very low figure. Finally, despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours per resident, this nursing home performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is generally a good indicator that a nursing home has quality controls in place.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The final category we graded was long-term care, which turned out to be this facility's least impressive category. It received an abysmal F for this area, which is certainly very concerning. If you are seeking anything other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at long-term care grades. In addition to considering the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 95.13889 percent of its residents, which is better than most nursing homes. Surprisingly, this facility also fared well at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.
