Facility Inspections

Grade: A

To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A for our inspections rating. Inspection ratings account for a host of factors found on a facility's inspection reports. One key criteria we look at is the number and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with better scores in this category usually have few of these severe deficiencies. This place received 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered severe. This tells you that the inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies to cause an imminent threat to resident safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

In addition, this nursing home also was given favorable long-term care scores this year. In fact, we gave them one of our stronger grades in that area, with a grade of B+. For prospective residents in need of a permanent residence as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care is an important category. After looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 71.328674 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which happens to be a bit lower than we anticipated but still a decent percentage. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

This nursing home is also above average in the category of short-term care, where it was given a score of B. It performed more favorably than most facilities in this category. In the area of short-term care, we attempt to qualify indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We assess a nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and various therapists. We weren't able to locate information on registered nurse or physical therapy staffing for this nursing home. The final item we considered in this area is the number of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We found that 6.1 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

This nursing home's weakest category was nursing, which is the final area we scored. In this category, we awarded this nursing home a grade of D. The nursing category weighs many subcategories, many of which are tied to nursing hours. This nursing home provided a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This is an alarmingly low total. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing scores. This place fared well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these statistics to be reliable measures of the quality of nursing care.
