Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

While this facility received a decent overall score, its inspections score is notably more impressive than its overall score. Due to a strong government inspection report this year, it received a strong score in that area with a B+. These inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This facility received 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered severe. This tells you that the government inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies to pose an immediate threat to resident 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 nursing home also received a strong grade in our nursing category. We awarded this nursing home an above average grade of B+ in this area. Our nursing score is based on a number of factors. The most heavily weighted variable is the number of hours nurses spend with patients. This nursing home provides 0.6 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed very well in terms of minimizing its residents' 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

This facilities next most favorable category is short-term care. We gave it a grade of B- in this category. This is basically a middle of the pack score in this area. With our short-term care assessment, we try to create a fair barometer for rehabilitation. In this process, we analyze a facility's scope of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. Not all facilities employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we considered the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 4.8 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most nursing homes, closer to half of their patients are able to return home so this figure is below average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

Moving on to our next category, this facility received an acceptable long-term care grade of C. For prospective residents in need of a permanent residence as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care is a very important category. After considering the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination data. We were pleased to discover that this nursing home vaccinated 97.01492 percent of its residents against pneumonia. This nursing home keeps its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
