Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

The main reason this facility received a decent overall grade is its excellent health inspections in recent years. We gave it one of our better grades in that area, with an A-. This is a notably better grade than the facility's overall score, which was decent but certainly not elite. Our inspection ratings are based on datapoints located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities that score well in this category have very few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these places should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. While this nursing home had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are found in categories G through L. This means CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

We also wanted to note that this facility was awarded a great long-term care grade. In fact, we awarded it one of our most impressive grades in that area with a score of A-. For patients looking for a permanent place to live as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care grades are an important measure. After considering the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 93.82023 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is a bit less than we anticipated but still a respectable percentage. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

This nursing home's next most favorable area ended up being short-term care. In that area, we awarded this nursing home a grade of C. Our short-term care ratings are vital for prospective residents seeking rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually mandates higher levels of skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes a wide spectrum of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Unfortunately, we weren't able to locate information on registered nurse or physical therapy staffing for this nursing home. Finally, we assessed the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 5.9 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most nursing homes, closer to half of their patients are able to return home so this figure is below average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

The final category we analyzed is nursing. We awarded this facility a D for our nursing category, rendering this its least impressive area. When determining a nursing home's nursing rating, we assess the amount of time nurses are seeing residents as well as the skill levels of the nurses. With a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis, this facility's nurse staffing levels were well below the national average. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing scores. This facility performed well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be measures of the quality of nursing care.
