Facility Inspections

Grade: A

The primary reason this facility received a decent overall score is its excellent government inspections in recent years. We awarded it one of our higher scores in that category, with an A. This is a much better grade than the facility's overall grade, which was decent but not in the elite range. Arguably the most important factor we look at in determining our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. Facilities with higher grades in this category most likely dodged the most severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. This particular nursing home received 5 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a good inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

This nursing home also was awarded a favorable long-term care score. Indeed, we awarded them a grade of B in this category, which happens to be one of our more favorable scores. In a long-term care environment, the facility's primary goal is to maintain patients' quality of life and keep them safe. After considering the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination records. This nursing home vaccinated 78.23129 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which happens to be somewhat less than we were hoping for but still a decent figure. Although its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we like to see, at least this place was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

This facility's next best category was its nursing grade, where it received a grade of C. The nursing grade includes several factors. The most important one is the quantity of hours nurses spent with residents. This place averages just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient daily, which is well below average. Lastly, while this nursing home got dinged a bit for nursing hours, it actually excelled in some of our quality metrics. With less than five percent of its patients sustaining pressure ulcers, it did remarkably well in this area.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The last area we looked at is short-term care. We gave this facility a C in this category. Short-term care grades are generally employed to gauge a facility's rehabilitation services. To provide highly graded rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to offer higher levels of highly skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other highly trained professionals. It does not look like this facility submitted registered nurse or physical therapist staffing data. Lastly, we considered the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 5.4 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most facilities, closer to half of their residents are able to return home so this figure is below average.
