Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

To go along with its relatively modest overall grade, we awarded this facility an A+ for its inspection grade. This grade is far more impressive than the facility's overall rating. These inspection grades take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This particular nursing home received 3 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.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

Another one of this facility's higher category grades was in the category of long-term care. In that category, we awarded this facility a B. Facilities that receive this kind of score in this category tend to provide consistent 24/7 care to make sure patients are well cared for. One of the criteria we considered on top of nursing hours was vaccines. This nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccination to 93.333336 percent of its residents. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home was given its next best category grade in the area of short-term care. We awarded this nursing home a B- in this area, which is an acceptable grade. Short-term care grades are commonly used to gauge a facility's rehabilitation services To provide highly scored rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to have higher levels of highly skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other highly trained professionals. Unfortunately, it doesn't appear that this nursing home submitted information on registered nurse or physical therapist staffing. The last metric we considered in this category is the number of patients that returned home from the facility. We found that just 5.6 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

This facility's least impressive category was nursing, which is the last area we analyzed. For this area, we awarded this nursing home a D. In computing our nursing scores, we assess both staffing levels and the levels of licensure of the nurses. This nursing home provided only 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing grades. This nursing home fared well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.
