Facility Inspections

Grade: A

To pair with its relatively modest overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A for our inspections rating. This grade is far better than the facility's overall rating. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing these inspection grades. One key factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some end up being quite insignificant. Although this nursing home had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were serious based on CMS' deficiency scale. A couple of minor deficiencies shouldn't lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

One of the other reasons we graded this nursing home so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing grade. In that category, we awarded this nursing home an C. When determining our nursing grades, we look at both the number of hours nurses spend with residents and the skill levels of those nurses. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Lastly, although this facility got dinged a bit for nursing hours per resident, it excelled in some of our quality measures. With less than five percent of its residents suffering from pressure ulcers, it fared well in this metric.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The next category we assessed is short-term care. In that category, we awarded this facility a grade of C. In our short-term care score, we try to craft a meaningful measure for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we assess the facility's level of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. We found that this place was below average in the two key staffing areas we focus on. The facility provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other facilities. Lastly, we considered the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 4.6 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most nursing homes, closer to half of their residents are able to return home so this figure is below average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Turning to the final area, we gave this nursing home a grade of D in long-term care. This is the facility's weakest category score. When facilities receive this type of grade in long-term care it is a bad sign for patient care and it may indicate that the facility is not as well-staffed. One of the data points we considered in addition to nurse's aid hours is vaccinations. Candidly, we were a bit concerned this nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccination to only 85.65737 percent of its residents. To our surprise, this place was actually decent at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This was its best score in this category.
