Facility Inspections

Grade: B

We would like to point out that this facility's inspection score exceeded its overall score. This facility earned a grade of B in this area, which is one of our better grades. Inspection grades account for a host of factors found on a facility's inspection reports. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Places with better grades in this area typically have few severe deficiencies. While this nursing home had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G through L. This tells you that the government inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A couple of minor deficiencies should not stop you from considering a nursing home.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

We also gave this nursing home a solid grade in the category of short-term care, where it received a B-. Short-term care grades are commonly employed to gauge a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation. To have highly rated rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must have better levels of skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other highly trained professionals. Unfortunately, this place was below average in terms of its number of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its patients based on the metrics we assessed. The last item we looked at in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We discovered that just 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is below average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home's next best category was nursing. We awarded it a grade of B- in this category. This is basically a middle of the road grade in this category. Our nursing rating is primarily based on the nursing home's nurse staffing. This place provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This is a low total compared to most other nursing homes. Lastly, despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours, this place actually performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is typically a reliable indicator that a place has sufficient quality controls in place.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

Moving on to our fourth category, this nursing home was given an acceptable long-term care score of C. If you are looking for services other than rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each nursing home's long-term care grades. After considering the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then looked at the facility's vaccination data. We were pleased to find that this nursing home vaccinated 99.570816 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Lastly, this nursing home was also able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
