Facility Inspections

Grade: A

The primary reason this ended up being a decent nursing home is that it received an excellent inspection score. In fact, its inspection score was far superior to its overall score. In our inspections category, we gave it a grade of A. These inspection grades take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these factors by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Fortunately, although this facility had some minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means the inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies shouldn't stop you from considering a nursing home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

Adding to this nursing home's list of strengths, it also received an excellent nursing grade. We awarded them an impressive grade of B- in this area. Nursing ratings are primarily based on a nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home averages just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility fared better in some of the quality-based metrics we assessed. It scored well in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

This facility's third most favorable area turned out to be its long-term care score, where it received a C. If you are seeking anything other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at long-term care scores. One of the datapoints we considered after nurse's aid hours was vaccinations. Thankfully, this nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccination to 97.48202 percent of its residents. This nursing home keeps its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The next area we scored is short-term care, proved to be this nursing home's worst area. We awarded this nursing home a grade of D in that area. Short-term care ratings are critical for individuals needing rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually requires more highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means a broad scope of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Given its grade in this area, we were not stunned to learn that this place was well below average in terms of its number of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its patients based on the metrics we assessed. Lastly, we considered the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. This wasn't a strength for this nursing home. We found that just 3 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most nursing homes, about half of their residents are able to return home so this is well below average.
