Facility Inspections

Grade: A

The primary reason this nursing home received a decent overall grade is its excellent government inspections in recent years. We gave them one of our higher scores in that category, with an A. This is a much better score than the facility's overall score, which was decent but certainly not elite. Our inspection ratings weigh a host of factors included in a facility's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we weigh heavily is the number and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with higher scores in this category typically have few severe deficiencies. This facility was assessed 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered to be severe. This tells you that CMS didn't deem any of these deficiencies to pose an immediate threat to patient health or safety. A few minor deficiencies shouldn't lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home's next highest category was its long-term care grade, where it was awarded a grade of B-. In the category of long-term care, we weigh the quantity of care provided by a facility, as opposed to more medically-intensive services. Once we looked at the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination record. Candidly, we were a bit worried that this nursing home vaccinated 69.54378 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which happens to be quite a bit lower than what we were hoping for. Nevertheless, this place keeps its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

The next highest grade we gave this nursing home in any area came in the category of nursing, where we gave it a grade of C. We looked at the qualifications of nurses at the nursing home, in addition to the quantity of hours the nurses spent with residents, in determining our rating in this category. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Lastly, despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours, this facility actually performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is often a reliable indicator that a facility has quality controls in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The last area we assessed is short-term care, turned out to be this facility's weakest category. We gave this facility a grade of D in this category. In calculating our short-term care scores, we analyze the nursing home's levels of skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists respiratory therapists and other licensed professionals. This area is considered to be a fair assessment of the facility's ability to rehabilitate patients. Given its grade in this area, we were not surprised to discover that this facility was well below average in terms of its number of physical therapy and registered nurse hours offered to its patients based on the data we assessed. Frankly, this was about what we expected to find. The last measure we assessed in this category is the percentage of residents who returned home from the facility. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 4.5 percent of its residents returning home. Unfortunately, this was well below average.
