Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

It should be noted that this nursing home's inspection score outpaced its overall grade. In fact, we awarded it a B+ for its inspections rating, which is one of our better scores. Our inspection grades weigh several factors included in a facility's inspection report. One key criteria we consider is the number and severity of deficiencies. Places with higher grades in this category usually have very few of these severe deficiencies. While this place had a few minor dings on its report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G through L. This tells you that the government inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies should not stop you from considering a nursing home.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Additionally, we also wanted to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received impressive short-term care marks this year. We gave them one of our more impressive grades in this category, with a B+. This proved to be the facility's second strongest score. Our short-term care ratings are probably more important for patients requiring rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation typically utilizes more highly-skilled nursing services. This includes not only nursing, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. Unfortunately, it does not look like this nursing home submitted information on registered nurse or physical therapist staffing. The final statistic we considered in this area is the percentage of patients who eventually returned home from the facility. We found that 6.5 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

The next highest grade we gave this nursing home in any area came in the category of nursing, where we gave it a grade of C. The nursing rating considers numerous datapoints. The most heavily weighted variable is the amount of time nurses spend with residents. This facility provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This is a lower figure than we were hoping for. Lastly, although this place got dinged a bit for nursing hours per resident, it excelled in a few of our quality metrics. With fewer than five percent of its residents experiencing pressure ulcers, it did well in this subcategory.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

This facility's worst area was long-term care, which is the last area we assessed. For this area, we awarded this facility a grade of just D. For prospective patients seeking a permanent place to live rather than rehabilitation, long-term care is a very important category. On top of considering the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 99.324326 percent of its patients. Surprisingly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility has fewer hospitalizations than the average nursing home. Sadly, a few of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.
