Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

The main reason this nursing home received a decent overall grade is its impeccable government inspections in recent years. We awarded it one of our better scores in that area, with a grade of A+. This is a notably better grade than the place's overall score, which was decent but not in the elite range. Our inspection grades are based on many items found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes that receive favorable grades in this area typically have few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these nursing homes should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. Although this place had a few deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. A couple of minor deficiencies should not stop you from considering a nursing home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

This nursing home also was given a positive long-term care grade. Indeed, we gave them a grade of B in this area, which happens to be one of our more favorable scores. Nursing homes that excel in this category typically provide patients with better supervision and stay on top of routine healthcare services. After assessing the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is more than most nursing homes. 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 one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

Next, we looked at the nursing category where we gave this nursing home an F. This is certainly not one of this facility's better areas. Our nursing score includes a host of factors. The most important variable is the number of hours nurses spent with patients. This particular nursing home averaged just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This number is far below the national average. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing ratings. This facility fared well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these datapoints to be indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The last category we assessed was short-term care. Unfortunately, we gave it an F in this area, which is a very poor grade. This is certainly a major concern. In the category of short-term care, we seek to assess measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We look at a nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and various therapists. Based on its score in this area, we were not stunned to find that this nursing home was well below average in terms of the quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its residents based on the metrics we assessed. Frankly, this was what we expected here. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of patients that who were able to eventually return home from this facility. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 3.2 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.
