Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

In addition to being a respectable facility overall, this place also excelled in the area of inspections, where it received an A+. Few nursing homes performed better in this category. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating our inspection ratings. One critical factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more important than the number of deficiencies, as some end up being quite insignificant. Although this facility had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. Keep in mind that deficiency-free inspection reports are uncommon in the industry.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

Another one of this facility's higher category grades came in the area of long-term care. In that category, we awarded this nursing home a B. In a long-term care environment, the facility's primary objective is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. In addition to looking at the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 91.55844 percent of its patients, which is somewhat less than we expected. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

This nursing home's next best category was nursing. We awarded it a grade of C in this category. This is basically a middle of the road grade in this category. We weighed the levels of nurses working for the nursing home, as well as the number of hours the nurses worked with patients, in determining our grade in this category. 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. Finally, while this facility got docked a bit for its nursing hours, it excelled in a few of our quality metrics. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed remarkably well in this metric.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The next category we assessed is short-term care. We awarded this facility a D in our short-term care category, rendering this the facility's least impressive grade. Short-term care grades are typically used to judge a facility's rehabilitation services. To have quality rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to have higher levels of highly skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other highly trained professionals. Unfortunately, this nursing home was below average in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its residents based on the measures we assessed. The final measure we looked at in this category is the number of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 3.8 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these poor metrics sunk this facility's short-term care grade.
