Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

We want to draw your attention to the fact that this facility really outperformed its overall grade in the category of inspections. In fact, it received an excellent government inspection report this year. As a result, we gave it one of our best scores in that area with an A-. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing our inspection grades. One key factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some of these end up being relatively insignificant. Fortunately, although this place had some minor dings on its report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G through L. This tells you the inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. We should note that deficiency-free inspection reports are rare in the industry.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home's next highest category is its short-term care grade, where it was given a B-. With our short-term care category, we seek to forge a valuable gauge for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we look at a facility's scope of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. We weren't able to locate registered nurse or physical therapy staffing data for this place. Finally, we considered the percentage of patients that were able to return home from this facility. We found that 5.9 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was quite a bit below the national average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The next most favorable category we gave this nursing home in any area came in the category of long-term care, where we gave it a B-. Long-term care grades assess a nursing home's assistance with daily living rather than the highly skilled therapy or medical services that are critical to a skilled nursing facility. One of the criteria we considered in addition to nursing hours was vaccines. Fortunately, this nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccination to 95.408165 percent of its residents. Lastly, this place was also able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

The final area we assessed was nursing. We gave it a B- in this category. This is basically a middle of the road grade in this area. There are numerous factors within this area. Most of the subcategories are tied to the quantity and quality of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a lower figure than we are used to seeing. Lastly, despite not having the highest total nursing hours per resident, this facility actually performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is often a good indicator that a place has quality controls in place.
