Facility Inspections

Grade: B

This facility earned an inspection grade which is better than its overall grade. Inspection grades are associated with the nursing home's recent health inspections. We awarded this nursing home a very solid grade of B in this area. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining our inspection grades. One of those factors is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some of these end up being relatively minor. While this nursing home had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were serious based on CMS' scale. A few minor deficiencies should not lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facility's second best category was its nursing grade, where it received a grade of B-. Our nursing score is primarily associated with the facility's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is a low total compared to most other facilities. Finally, while this place got docked a bit for nursing hours per resident, it excelled in some of our quality metrics. With fewer than five percent of its patients suffering from pressure ulcers, it fared remarkably well in this area.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

This nursing home's third most favorable category was its long-term care grade, where it was awarded a grade of C. Our long-term care grades are more meaningful for residents in need of more conventional assistance associated with activities of daily living. Once we looked at the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then looked at the facility's vaccination records. We were optimistic to discover that this nursing home vaccinated 96.64634 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Lastly, this facility was also able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The next category we looked at is short-term care. We gave it a C in this category. This is a fair grade in this category. Our short-term care scores are critical for prospective residents seeking rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually mandates additional skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes a vast spectrum of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other types of therapy. We found that this facility was below average in the two key staffing areas we focus on. It offered fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other nursing homes. Lastly, we looked at the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 5 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most nursing homes, closer to half of their patients are able to return home so this figure is below average.
