Facility Inspections

Grade: A

The primary reason this facility received a decent overall grade is its impeccable health inspections in recent years. We gave them one of our better grades in that area, with an A. This is a notably better score than the facility's overall score, which was decent but not in the elite range. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing our inspection ratings. One of those factors is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some can be quite minor. Although this place had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none were serious based on CMS' deficiency scale. A couple minor deficiencies shouldn't stop you from considering a nursing home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

This nursing home also received a strong long-term care score. Indeed, we awarded it a grade of B in that area, which is one of our more favorable scores. Long-term care ratings of this caliber generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. On top of looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients, which is better than most nursing homes. Lastly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

This nursing home's second lowest category was short-term care, where it received just a D in that area. This is a well below average grade. Short-term care grades are based in part on the facility's quantity of highly-skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This means a vast range of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, not to mention other types of therapy. Based on its score in this category, we weren't surprised to find that this place was well below average in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours offered to its patients based on the data we looked at. Lastly, we looked at the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that just 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

The final category we assessed is nursing. We gave it an abysmal F in this area, which is a poor score. This is certainly a significant concern. Nursing ratings are mostly based on the nursing home's nurse staffing. This particular facility offered just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This number is quite a bit below the national average. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing scores. This place performed well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these data points to be reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care.
