Facility Inspections

Grade: B

Although we were not high on this place overall, we awarded it a grade of B for our inspections category. This grade is much more impressive than the nursing home's overall grade. Our inspection scores are based on pieces of information located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are a key thing to look for on these reports. You should especially avoid nursing homes that have severe deficiencies linked to risks to resident well being. Fortunately, although this place had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means the inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

One of the other reasons we graded this nursing home so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing grade. This turned out to be its second best category grade. In that category, we gave this facility an B-. Nursing grades are tied to quantity of nursing care available. This place provides only 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is a somewhat discouraging figure as it is well below average. Finally, although this facility got dinged a bit for its nursing hours per resident, it excelled in some of our quality metrics. With fewer than five percent of its residents suffering from pressure ulcers, it did remarkably well in this metric.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The next category we analyzed is short-term care. In that category, we gave this nursing home a grade of C. With our short-term care assessment, we strive to craft a sound gauge for rehabilitation. In doing so, we analyze a facility's level of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. Unfortunately, we found that this place provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other facilities. Lastly, we looked at the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 3.8 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most nursing homes, closer to half of their patients are able to return home so this figure is below average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The last area we analyzed was long-term care. In that category, we awarded this nursing home a C. Our long-term care grade focuses on a nursing home's assistance with daily living instead of the highly skilled nursing or healthcare services that are critical to a rehabilitation facility. On top of looking at the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Fortunately, this nursing home administered the vaccine to 99.492386 percent of its patients, which is a very solid total. This nursing home keeps its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
