Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

In addition to being a respectable facility overall, this place really excelled in the category of inspections, where it earned an A-. Few facilities performed better in this category. Perhaps the most important factor we look at in calculating our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. Places with better scores in this category most likely dodged the most severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. While this place had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. A few minor deficiencies shouldn't lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Another one of this facility's more favorable category scores was in the category of short-term care. In that category, we gave this facility a B+. It actually fared better than most facilities in this category. Short-term care ratings are meaningful for prospective residents needing rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically utilizes additional highly-skilled nursing services. This includes a wide scope of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we looked at the percentage of residents that returned home from this facility. We found that 5.4 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facility's next best category was its nursing grade, where it received a grade of B-. The nursing grade is based on many components, most of which are tied to quantities of nurse staffing. This facility provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility actually fared better in some of the quality measures we assessed. In fact, it scored well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care. In many cases, the quality of nursing care is as important as the number of hours of care offered.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The last category we assessed is long-term care, which turned out to be this facility's weakest category. Unfortunately, we gave it an abysmal F for this area, which is obviously a major concern. Nursing homes that receive this type of score in long-term care may not provide the kind of consistent 24/7 care that some other facilities offer. One of the factors we considered in addition to nurse's aid hours was vaccinations. Candidly, we were a bit concerned this nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccine to just 73.61963 percent of its patients. Surprisingly, this facility actually fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This was its best score in this category.
