Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

The primary reason this nursing home received a decent overall score is its impeccable inspections in recent years. We gave them one of our better scores in that category, with an A+. This is a notably better score than the place's overall grade, which was decent but certainly not elite. Arguably the most significant factor we consider in computing our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes with better grades in this area typically avoided the more severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. Fortunately, although this place had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G through L. This means that the inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A couple of minor deficiencies should not stop you from considering a nursing home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facility's long-term care rating turns out to be one of its higher scores. The nursing home was given a B- in this area. If you are seeking services other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each facility's long-term care scores. In addition to considering the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 96.12404 percent of its patients, which is better than most nursing homes. This place also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.04 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

In addition, we gave this facility an F in the category of short-term care. In computing these short-term care grades, we quantify the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our objective is to devise a scale for comparing the rehabilitation services of nursing homes. With a grade in this range in this area, we weren't shocked to learn this facility was well below average in multiple staffing metrics we looked at. It supplied substantially fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most facilities. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. This was not a strength for this facility. We found that just 4.1 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most facilities, around half of their patients are able to return home so this is well below average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

This facility's weakest area was nursing, which is the last area we assessed. Unfortunately, we gave it a lowly F for this category. Despite some solid grades in other areas, this score is nevertheless alarming so we wanted to make sure you are aware. When determining our nursing grades, we weigh both staffing levels and the levels of licensure of the nurses. This facility offered only 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This is not a very impressive figure. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing ratings. This place performed well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.
