Facility Inspections

Grade: B

On top of having a decent overall grade, we also want to point out that this nursing home earned favorable health inspections in recent years. We gave them one of our better grades in this category, with a B. This is a notably better score than the nursing home's overall score. Inspection grades take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these issues by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. A couple of minor deficiencies shouldn't lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home's next best area is long-term care. In that category, we gave this facility a grade of B-. If you are looking for services other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at long-term care ratings. After assessing the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination records. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is higher than most nursing homes. This facility was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

This facility's next best category grade came in the area of nursing. In that category, we gave this nursing home a grade of C. There are a host of criteria within this grade. Most of these datapoints relate to levels of nurse staffing. 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. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility fared better in some of the quality-based metrics we assessed. It scored well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

Moving on to the last area, this facility received a grade of C for short-term care, which is an acceptable score. In the category of short-term care, we seek to qualify indicators of a facility's rehabilitation. We analyze a facility's skilled nursing services, including the ones performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. Unfortunately, we found that this nursing home provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. The more important thing is determining what bearing this had on the quality of care. Lastly, we considered the number of patients that eventually returned home from this nursing home. We found that 5.4 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was actually well below the national average.
