Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

The primary reason this nursing home received a decent overall grade is its excellent inspections in recent years. We gave it one of our better scores in that area, with a grade of A+. This is a notably better score than the place's overall score, which was decent but certainly not elite. Our inspection grades are based on many pieces of information found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes that receive favorable grades in this area typically have very few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these places should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. While this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none were serious based on CMS' deficiency scale. A few minor deficiencies aren't something to panic about.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

We also awarded this facility a favorable grade in long-term care. This nursing home earned a B+ in this area, which happens to be one of our higher scores. Nursing homes that do well in this category tend to be well-staffed and offer extensive hands on care to patients. On top of assessing the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 94.70405 percent of its patients, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia is too frequently a dangerous illness for nursing home patients so we strongly prefer when a nursing home doesn't roll the dice on this issue. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home was given its third best category grade in the category of short-term care. We awarded this nursing home a B- in this area, which is a decent grade. In calculating our short-term care grades, we look at a facility's levels of highly skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other types of therapists. This category is considered to be a solid measure of the facility's rehabilitation services. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. However, based on the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final metric we looked at in this category is the percentage of residents that ultimately returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 5.9 percent of this facility's residents returned home. This figure was below the national average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

This facility's worst area is nursing, which is the last category we looked at. In this area, we awarded this nursing home a grade of just D. Our nursing score consists of a handful of subcategories, but the most important consideration is the number of nurse hours per patient per week. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.
