Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

While this facility earned a decent overall rating, its inspections score is notably better than its overall grade. Due to a strong government inspection report this year, it received one of our better scores in that category with a B+. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining our inspection grades. One key factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is usually more important than the number of deficiencies, as some can be relatively insignificant. While this place had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are found in categories G through L. This tells you the government inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A few minor deficiencies shouldn't stop you from considering a nursing home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home earned high scores in nursing as well. It earned one of our highest scores in that category with an B-. The nursing score weighs several datapoints, most of which are tied to nursing hours. This nursing home provides only 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This is a somewhat discouraging figure which is well below the national average. Lastly, nursing grades also consider quality-based measures, such as avoiding major falls. Despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours, this facility actually performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is often an indicator that a facility has sufficient quality controls in place. Some falls can be avoided if a facility supplies enough nurses aids to assist its residents.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

We also awarded this nursing home a solid score in the category of short-term care, with a B-. In computing these short-term care ratings, we analyze the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The purpose is to create a measure for comparing the rehabilitation services of different facilities. Unfortunately, we found that this facility provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other nursing homes. The more important thing is determining what effect this had on the quality of care. Lastly, we considered the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 5.1 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most facilities, closer to half of their residents are able to return home so this figure is below average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The next category we looked at was long-term care, which turned out to be this nursing home's worst category. We awarded this nursing home a grade of D in that area. When nursing homes receive a score in this range in this category it generally means the nursing home did not perform well in our measures relating to resident care. On top of assessing the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 72.72727 percent of its patients. This is multiple points lower than what we were hoping for. To our surprise, this nursing home was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility has fewer hospitalizations than many nursing homes. This was its best feature in this category.
