Facility Inspections

Grade: A

This nursing home earned a solid overall grade as described above, but we really wanted to point out its excellent government inspection reports in recent years. We gave them an impressive grade of A in this category. Inspection grades take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these items by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This particular nursing home received 5 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

This facility also excelled in the area of nursing, where it earned a grade of B. Few facilities performed better in this area. Our nursing rating is mostly based on the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed very well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home received its next best category score in the area of short-term care. We gave this facility a B- in this category, which is a decent grade. Short-term care ratings are crucial for people looking for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically mandates additional skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means a vast scope of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other types of therapy. In this facility's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than the typical facility. The hope is always that this does not adversely impact the quality of care. The final statistic we assessed in this category is the percentage of patients that ultimately were able to return home from the facility. We found that just 3.7 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home. This figure was below average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The last area we looked at is long-term care. Sadly, it received an F for this area, which is a bottom of the barrel score. This is clearly a significant concern. For patients looking for a permanent place to live as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care grades are very important. In addition to assessing the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 97.549774 percent of its patients. Surprisingly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility had fewer hospitalizations than many nursing homes. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.
