Facility Inspections

Grade: A

The main reason this ended up being a decent nursing home is that it earned an elite inspection grade. In fact, its inspection grade was far better than its overall score. In the inspections category, we gave this facility an A. These inspection ratings weigh several factors, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can find more information about each of these factors by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This facility received 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This indicates that the inspectors did not deem any of these deficiencies to be an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

In addition, we gave this nursing home a grade of B+ in our long-term care category. This is one of our more impressive scores. When nursing homes receive this type of grade in long-term care it is usually a good sign for resident care and suggests that the nursing home is well-staffed with nurses and aids. On top of considering the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 95.180725 percent of its patients, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia sadly is often a deadly health condition for nursing home residents so we strongly prefer when a nursing home does not leave its residents vulnerable. Finally, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

This nursing home received its third most favorable category score in the category of short-term care. We gave this facility a C in this category, which is a decent grade. With our short-term care grade, we strive to craft a fair measure for rehabilitation. In doing so, we look at a nursing home's offerings of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. We were not able to find information on registered nurse or physical therapy staffing for this nursing home. The final item we looked at in this area is the percentage of patients who returned home from the facility. We found that just 4.8 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home. Unfortunately, this was below the national average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

This nursing home's weakest area was nursing, which is the final area we assessed. In this category, we awarded this facility a grade of just D. When determining a nursing home's nursing rating, we look at the number of hours nurses spend with patients as well as the level of licensure of those nurses. With just 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient each day, this facility's nurse staffing levels were well below average. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This place fared well when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
