Facility Inspections

Grade: A

On top of being a quality nursing home overall, this facility really excelled in the area of inspections, where it received an A. Few facilities performed better in that area. Our inspection scores weigh a host of factors found on a nursing home's inspection reports. One key criteria we consider is the number and severity of deficiencies. Places with better scores in this area usually have very few of these severe deficiencies. Although this place had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. The fact that the deficiencies were relatively minor made us feel better about this inspection report.

Our nursing score is mostly based on the facility's nurse staffing. This nursing home averages 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home 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 facility was awarded its next most favorable category score in the area of short-term care. We awarded this facility a B- in this area, which is a respectable grade. With our short-term care score, we try to forge a valuable gauge for rehabilitation. In doing so, we assess the nursing home's levels of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not all facilities employs these types of nurses. However, according to the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we looked at the number of patients who were able to return home from this facility. We found that 4.6 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was actually well below average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

Turning to our final category, this nursing home was given an acceptable long-term care grade of B-. In crafting our long-term care grades, we look at the nursing home's personal care services. Once we finished looking at the volume of nursing care, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination data. We were optimistic to discover that this nursing home vaccinated 99.62406 percent of its residents for pneumonia. This facility also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
