Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A+ for our inspections rating. Inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these issues by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This particular nursing home received 4 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a good inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This facility is also strong in the area of short-term care, where it was given a grade of B+. It outpaced most facilities in this area. Short-term care grades are typically used to assess a nursing home's rehabilitation services. To have highly graded rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to offer better levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other highly trained professionals. Unfortunately, it does not look like this nursing home submitted data regarding its registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. Finally, we assessed the number of residents that returned home from this nursing home. We found that 6.4 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home's next best category was nursing. We awarded it a grade of B- in this category. While this wasn't quite as good as some of its other category grades, this isn't a bad score either. Our nursing grade is based on a variety of factors. The most heavily weighted factor is the quantity of hours nurses spend with residents. This particular facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This figure is significantly below the national average. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures. While this place got dinged a bit for nursing hours, it actually excelled in some of these quality measures. With fewer than five percent of its patients experiencing pressure ulcers, it did remarkably well in this statistic. This can be a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can typically be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as having a policy of moving patients even once per day.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The final area we scored was long-term care, is this nursing home's weakest area. We gave this nursing home a D in that area. This really was one of just a couple of dings of a quality report card. When facilities receive a grade in this range in this category it typically means the nursing home did not perform well in our measures relating to patient care. In addition to looking at the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 70.450096 percent of its patients. This is significantly less than the national average. To our surprise, this facility was actually decent at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had just 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This is its best feature in this category.
