Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

The main reason this facility received a decent overall score is its impeccable inspections in recent years. We gave them one of our better scores in that category, with an A+. This is a notably better score than the facility's overall score, which was decent but certainly not elite. Arguably the most critical factor we look at in computing our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a facility's inspection reports. Places with higher scores in this category most likely avoided the more severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. Although this facility had some deficiencies on its report, none of them were serious based on CMS' scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This nursing home also was awarded a strong long-term care grade. As a matter of fact, we gave them a grade of B+ in this category, which happens to be one of our better. In a long-term care environment, the primary goal is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. Once we assessed the volume of care provided by nurses, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination data. This facility vaccinated 93.722946 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Unfortunately, this facility only received a D for its short-term care grade, which is not an impressive grade. In calculating our short-term care ratings, we scrutinize the facility's levels of skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists respiratory therapists and other highly trained professionals. This area is considered to be a solid measure of the nursing home's ability to rehabilitate patients. Unfortunately, we discovered that this nursing home offers fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than most facilities. Lastly, we considered the number of patients who ultimately returned home from this nursing home. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 4.8 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

Turning to our next category, we gave this facility a D in our nursing category. This was the facility's worst category rating. Of course, this category pulled down the facility's overall profile a bit. The nursing rating analyzes quite a few data points, most of which are associated with quantities of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing scores. This nursing home fared well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these statistics to be indicators of the quality of nursing care.
