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 77.055214 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.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The third best category we awarded this facility in any category came in the area of short-term care, where we awarded it a C. Our short-term care ratings are crucial for people looking for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally mandates higher levels of skilled nursing services. This includes a broad scope of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Unfortunately, we found that this nursing home provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other nursing homes. The final statistic we assessed in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We discovered that just 4.8 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is below average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

Moving on to our next category, we gave this nursing home a grade of D for our nursing category. This was the facility's weakest category grade. There are a number of factors included in this area. Most of these subcategories reflect levels of nurse staffing. This place averaged only 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these metrics to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
