Facility Inspections

Grade: A

The main reason this facility received a decent overall score is its impeccable inspections in recent years. We awarded them one of our better grades in that area, with an A. This is a much better grade than the facility's overall score, which was decent but not in the elite range. Inspection scores take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these factors by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This facility was hit with 6 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This tells you that the government inspectors did not consider any of these deficiencies to cause an immediate threat to resident safety or health. The fact that the deficiencies were relatively minor made us feel better about this inspection report.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facility's second most favorable category was long-term care. In that area, we gave this facility a B-. For prospective patients in need of a permanent place to live rather than rehabilitation, long-term care grades are a key measure. In addition to considering the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 97.560974 percent of its residents, which is higher than the average nursing home. This nursing home also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The third category we graded was short-term care, where this facility was given a grade of B- in this area. In the category of short-term care, we endeavor to assess measures of a facility's rehabilitation. We look at the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and various therapists. Unfortunately, it doesn't appear that this nursing home provided information about its staffing of registered nurses or physical therapists. Finally, we assessed the number of residents that ultimately returned home from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was quite a bit below average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

This facility's least impressive category was nursing, which is the final category we scored. For this category, we gave this facility a grade of D. Our nursing grade assesses the facility's level of nurse staffing. We weigh both the levels of licensure of those nurses and the quantity of hours spent with residents. This facility provided a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is an alarmingly low total. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing scores. This nursing home fared well when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these metrics to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
