Facility Inspections

Grade: A

The primary reason this nursing home received a decent overall grade is its excellent health inspections in recent years. We gave them one of our better grades in that area, with an A. This is a much better score than the facility's overall grade, which was decent but certainly not elite. These inspection scores weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This nursing home received 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This indicates that the inspectors did not consider any of these deficiencies to cause an immediate threat to patient safety or health. A few relatively minor deficiencies aren't necessarily something to panic about.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

Another one of this nursing home's higher category scores was in the category of long-term care. In that area, we gave this nursing home a B. Nursing homes that receive this type of score in long-term care typically provide consistent around the clock care to make sure residents are well cared for. On top of assessing the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 96.084335 percent of its patients, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia sadly is often a deadly health condition for nursing home patients so we like it when a facility does not roll the dice on this issue. Lastly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

Next, we looked at the nursing category where we awarded this nursing home a grade of C, which is a decent grade. Nursing grades are based in large part on levels of nurse staffing. This facility provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures. While this facility got docked a bit for its nursing hours, it excelled in some of these quality measures. With less than five percent of its residents suffering from pressure ulcers, it performed remarkably well in this statistic. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can often be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as having a protocol of moving a patient at least once a day.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The last area we rated is short-term care. This nursing home was awarded a C in the area. In computing our short-term care ratings, we look at the nursing home's levels of highly skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists respiratory therapists and other highly trained professionals. This category is frequently a fair measure of the nursing home's rehabilitation. Unfortunately, we were not able to find information about this nursing home's registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. The last statistic we considered in this category is the number of patients who were able to leave the facility and return home. We discovered that just 5.1 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is actually below average.
