Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

The main reason this ended up being a decent nursing home is that it received an excellent inspection grade. Its inspection grade was far better than its overall score. In our inspections category, we gave this facility a grade of A+. These inspection scores take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This place received 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This means that the government inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies an immediate 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

Additionally, we also would like to point out that this facility was awarded strong long-term care marks in this assessment. We awarded them one of our better grades in that category, with a B. This proved to be the nursing home's second best grade. If you are seeking anything other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each nursing home's long-term care ratings. On top of assessing the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 92.9368 percent of its patients. This is slightly lower than we were hoping for but still a reasonably acceptable percentage. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The next category we looked at was short-term care, where this nursing home received a grade of B- in this category. Short-term care grades are based on the facility's quantity of skilled highly skilled professionals. This includes a vast spectrum of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, in addition to other variations of therapy. It does not look like this nursing home submitted data regarding its registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. The last metric we assessed in this area is the number of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We discovered that just 5.7 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is actually below average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

The last area we scored was nursing, which was this nursing home's weakest area. It received an F for this area, which is clearly very concerning. In computing a nursing home's nursing score, we look at the amount of time nurses are with residents as well as the levels of training of the nurses. This facility offered only 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident each day. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing ratings. This nursing home performed well in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these statistics to be indicators of the quality of nursing care.
