Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

We want to point out that this facility really outperformed its overall score in the area of inspections. In fact, it received an excellent government inspection report this year. As a result, we gave it one of our best grades in this category with an A-. Perhaps the most important factor we consider in computing our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. Places with higher grades in this area typically avoided the more severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. Although this place had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. A couple of minor deficiencies should not stop you from considering a nursing home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

Another one of this nursing home's stronger areas was in the category of nursing care. In that area, we gave this facility a grade of B. Our nursing grade is mostly associated with a facility's nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This nursing home performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a facility has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can frequently be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

This nursing home's next most favorable category is long-term care. We gave it a C in this area. This is essentially a slightly below average score in this area. For patients seeking a permanent residence rather than skilled nursing, long-term care is an important category. One of the criteria we considered on top of nursing hours is vaccinations. This facility provided the pneumonia vaccine to 93.11224 percent of its residents. Nevertheless, this place excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

Our last area is short-term care, in which we awarded this nursing home a C in this area. In the category of short-term care, we seek to evaluate measures of a facility's rehabilitation services. We look at the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. Unfortunately, we found that this facility provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other nursing homes. Finally, we looked at the percentage of patients who ultimately returned home from this facility. We found that 3.9 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was well below average.
