Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

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 more impressive than its overall score. Our inspection scores account for several factors found on a facility's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we look at is the number and severity of deficiencies. Places with higher grades in this area generally have few of these severe deficiencies. This facility received 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This tells you that the inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies to cause an immediate threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

We also gave this nursing home a strong grade in long-term care. This nursing home earned a grade of B in this area, which turns out to be one of our more favorable scores. Long-term care grades in this range generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. On top of assessing the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 87.81163 percent of its residents, which is a bit below what we expected. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

This facility's next best category was its nursing grade, where it received a grade of C. Nursing grades are based in large part on 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 surprisingly fared better in some of the quality measures we looked at. It scored well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The next area we assessed is short-term care. Unfortunately, we gave it a lowly F in this area, which is a rock bottom grade. This is obviously a significant disappointment. Our short-term care scores are believed to be most important for people in need of rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation typically utilizes higher levels of highly-skilled nursing services. This includes not merely nursing, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. It looks like this nursing home was below average in multiple staffing metrics we focus on. The facility provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than most other facilities. Finally, we considered the number of residents that ultimately were able to return home from this facility. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 3.4 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.
