Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

One of the reasons this place is a strong nursing home is that it earned an impressive inspection score. In fact, inspections is its best category grade. In that area, we gave this facility an A+. Inspection scores take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these issues by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This place was assessed 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be major deficiencies. This means that the government inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies an immediate threat to resident 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

This facility also received a strong long-term care grade. In fact, we awarded it an above average score of B in this area. In a long-term care setting, the primary objective is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate residents. After looking at the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination statistics. This facility vaccinated 92.49329 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which happens to be a bit less than we anticipated but still a reasonably acceptable figure. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home's third highest area was short-term care. In that area, we awarded this facility a grade of B-. In computing our short-term care scores, we assess the facility's levels of skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other highly trained professionals. This area is more often than not a fair measure of the nursing home's ability to rehabilitate patients. Unfortunately, we weren't able to find registered nurse or physical therapy staffing data for this facility. The last measure we looked at in this area is the number of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We discovered that just 5.9 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is below average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

The next category we looked at was nursing, ended up being this facility's worst area. We gave this facility a D in this category. This was one of just a couple of weak links of a strong report card. When computing our nursing ratings, we analyze both the number of hours nurses spend with residents and the skill levels of those nurses. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing ratings. This place performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.
