Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

This facility earned its best category grade in the area of inspections. Inspection grades are related to a facility's recent government inspection reports. We gave this facility a grade of B- in this category, which isn't a bad grade. Our inspection scores account for a host of factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we weigh heavily is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. While this facility had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means that the 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 shouldn't stop you from considering a nursing home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facility performed well in the area of nursing. We gave it a grade of B- for that category, which is one of our highest scores. In computing a nursing home's nursing grade, we assess the number of hours nurses are caring for patients and the level of skill of the nurses. This nursing home provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This figure is significantly below average. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures. Although this nursing home got dinged a bit for its nursing hours per resident, it excelled in a few of these quality-based metrics. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed well in this metric. This is often an indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can often be avoided by providing better nursing care, such as by employing a protocol of turning a patient more frequently.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

This facilities next most favorable category was short-term care. We gave it a C in this area. This is basically a middle of the pack grade in this area. In determining our short-term care ratings, we analyze a facility's levels of highly skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other highly skilled individuals. This category is generally a solid measure of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. In this place's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than a typical facility. The hope is that this does not adversely affect the quality of care. Finally, we considered the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 4.3 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most nursing homes, closer to half of their patients are able to return home so this figure is below average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The final area we assessed was long-term care. We awarded this facility a C in that area. Long-term care grades are used to judge a nursing home's performance as a traditional convalescent home, as opposed to focusing more on the skilled nursing services provided by a rehabilitation facility. On top of looking at the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 98.7013 percent of its residents, which is more than the majority of nursing homes. Finally, this place was also able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
