Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

This nursing home's overall score was propped up by the fact that it has earned favorable government inspections in recent years. We gave it a strong score in that area, with a B+. This is a much better score than the facility's overall score. Arguably the most significant factor we look at in determining our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places with better grades in this area typically dodged the most severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. This particular nursing home received 4 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a solid inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facility's second best category grade came in the area of nursing. In that category, we gave this nursing home a grade of B-. Nursing scores are primarily based on a nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This place provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This is a relatively low total compared to most other nursing homes. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility fared better in some of the quality measures we looked at. In fact, it performed well in terms of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be indicators of the quality of nursing care. In some cases, the quality of nursing care is as important as the quantity of hours of care offered.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

This nursing home's third highest category ended up being long-term care. In that category, we awarded this nursing home a C. In the area of long-term care, we assess the quantity of care offered by a nursing home, as opposed to more healthcare-oriented services. In addition to considering the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. We discovered that this facility vaccinated just 56.29371 percent of its patients, which is quite a bit lower than we expected. Nevertheless, this facility keeps its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The last category we analyzed is short-term care. We awarded this facility a C in this area. In determining our short-term care scores, we assess a nursing home's levels of skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other highly skilled individuals. This area is typically a useful measure of a facility's rehabilitation services. We found that this nursing home was below average in the two key staffing areas we looked at. The facility provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other nursing homes. Finally, we assessed the percentage of residents who who were able to eventually return home from this nursing home. We found that 4.1 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was actually quite a bit below average.
