Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

To pair with its decent overall score, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A- for our inspections rating. This score is far more impressive than its overall grade. Inspection scores weigh a host of factors found on a nursing home's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we look at is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with better scores in this area tend to have very few severe deficiencies. Amazingly, this was one of the few nursing homes in the country that had no deficiencies whatsoever on its inspection report. This is very impressive. This is definitely an excellent sign for this nursing home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

One of this facility's more favorable category grades was in the area of long-term care. This wound up being its second best category. In that area, we gave this nursing home a grade of C. In calculating our long-term care grades, we size up the personal care offered to the facility's patients. We would need to do a little more research into this place before expressing a stronger opinion on this category as it looks like we are missing a few datapoints for long-term care.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

We also gave this nursing home a decent score in the category of nursing care, with a grade of C. Our nursing rating focuses on the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. We factor in both the levels of training of those nurses and the quantity of hours spent with patients. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Finally, although this place got dinged a bit for nursing hours per resident, it excelled in a few of our quality measures. With fewer than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it fared well in this statistic.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

Moving on to the next category, this nursing home received a grade of C in short-term care, which is generally a decent score. In the area of short-term care, we strive to evaluate measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We look at a nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. We found that this facility was below average in the two key staffing areas we assessed. The facility provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. The last measure we considered in this category is the percentage of patients that eventually returned home from the facility. We found that just 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.
