Facility Inspections

Grade: A

We want to point out that this nursing home really outperformed its overall score in the category of inspections. In fact, it received an excellent inspection report this year. As a result, we gave it one of our highest scores in that area with an A. Inspection scores weigh several factors, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can find more information about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This place was assessed 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This means that the inspectors did not consider any of these deficiencies an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies should not lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home's long-term care rating is one of its respectable features. The nursing home received a B- in this area. For prospective residents seeking a permanent place to live rather than rehabilitation, long-term care grades are very important. Once we looked at the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination records. This nursing home vaccinated 98.113205 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is better than most nursing homes. Finally, this nursing home was also able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

Next, we looked at the nursing category where we awarded this nursing home a grade of C, which is a decent grade. The nursing grade assesses a handful of datapoints, but the main one is the level of nurse hours per patient per week. This nursing home averages 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident daily, which is well below average. Finally, despite not having the highest total nursing hours, this place actually performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is usually a good indicator that a facility has sufficient quality controls in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Turning to the fourth area, we awarded this nursing home a D for our short-term care category. This is the facility's weakest category rating. Our short-term care ratings are likely most critical for patients in need of rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation usually requires more highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes not only nursing services, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. Finally, we considered the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that just 4.1 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
