Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

The main reason this nursing home received a decent overall score is its excellent health inspections in recent years. We gave them one of our higher grades in that category, with a grade of A+. This is a much better score than the place's overall grade, which was decent but certainly not elite. Our inspection grades are tied to several pieces of information located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes that score well in this area have very few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these nursing homes should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. This place received 8 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered severe. This means that CMS didn't deem any of these deficiencies an immediate risk to resident safety or health. We should note that deficiency-free inspection reports are uncommon in this industry.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

Another one of this nursing home's better category scores came in the area of short-term care. In that area, we gave this facility a grade of B. It actually outperformed most nursing homes in this category. Our short-term care grade is typically used to grade a facility's performance with rehabilitation. In order to provide high-end rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to provide better levels of highly skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other types of therapists. Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last datapoint we assessed in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the facility and return home. We found that 5.8 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

An additional reason we rated this facility so highly is that it received an A+ nursing score. Our nursing rating looks at the facility's nurse staffing levels. We factor in both the levels of licensure of the nurses and the quantity of hours spent with residents. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed very well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Switching gears to the last area, this nursing home did not fare very well. Due to a rock bottom grade of F in long-term care, this is this facility's worst category grade. When nursing homes receive a score in this range in long-term care it typically means the facility did not perform well in our measures relating to patient care. Once we concluded our assessment of the volume of nursing care, we next considered the facility's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 92.42424 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Surprisingly, this facility was actually decent at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This is its best feature in this category.
