Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

While this nursing home received a decent overall score, its inspections grade is notably more impressive than its overall score. Due to a strong health inspection report this year, it received one of our better scores in that category with a B+. Inspection scores take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This nursing home was hit with 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This means that the government inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies to pose an imminent risk to resident health or safety. We should point out that deficiency-free inspections are uncommon in this industry.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

This nursing home also received a strong grade in our nursing category. We awarded this nursing home an above average grade of B+ in this area. We looked at the levels of nurses employed by the facility, as well as the quantity of hours those nurses were with patients, in determining our grade in this area. This nursing home averages 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This facility performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a nursing home has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can often be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

Additionally, we also wanted to note that this nursing home was awarded favorable long-term care marks in this assessment. We awarded them one of our higher grades in this category, with a B. Nursing homes that excel in this category typically provide residents with better supervision and stay on top of routine healthcare services. One of the datapoints we considered on top of nursing hours was vaccinations. This facility provided the pneumonia vaccination to 98.9011 percent of its residents. This is a reliable method to minimize unnecessary deaths for the senior population. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The last area we scored is short-term care. This facility received a grade of C in the area. In computing our short-term care grades, we look at a nursing home's levels of highly skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists respiratory therapists and other types of therapists. This category is considered to be a meaningful assessment of a facility's ability to rehabilitate patients. Unfortunately, it does not look like this nursing home submitted information on registered nurse or physical therapist staffing. The last metric we looked at in this category is the percentage of residents that ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that just 3.6 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
