Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

This nursing home earned an inspection grade which is better than its overall score. Inspection scores are based on a facility's recent health inspections. We awarded this facility an above average grade of B+ in this area. Our inspection ratings weigh several factors found on a facility's inspection report. One key criteria we rely on is the number and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with higher scores in this category typically have few of these severe deficiencies. This particular nursing home received 5 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a solid inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facility's next most favorable category is short-term care. In that category, we gave this nursing home a grade of B-. In our short-term care rating, we endeavor to craft a sound barometer for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we look at a facility's scope of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. We found that this place was below average in the two key staffing areas we focus on. It supplied fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. It is important to determine whether this is adversely impacting the quality of care. The final statistic we looked at in this category is the number of patients that were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that just 5.5 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home. Unfortunately, this was below the national average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The third highest area we awarded this facility in any area came in the category of long-term care, where we gave it a grade of C. Our long-term care ratings are more critical for folks needing more traditional services related to personal care. On top of assessing the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 97.167755 percent of its residents. This nursing home keeps its patients out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

Moving on to our final area, this nursing home was awarded a grade of C in nursing, which is a decent grade. Nursing scores are mostly based on a facility's nurse staffing. 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, we also looked at some nursing quality measures. Although this place got dinged a bit for its nursing hours, it excelled in a few of these quality-based metrics. With fewer than five percent of its residents experiencing pressure ulcers, it performed very well in this subcategory. This is generally an indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can typically be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as by having a system of moving a resident at least once a day.
