Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

To go along with its relatively modest overall grade, we gave this facility an A+ for our inspections rating. This is far better than its overall score. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing these inspection ratings. One critical factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more important than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies end up being relatively insignificant. While this place had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means the government inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A few minor deficiencies shouldn't stop you from considering a nursing home.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

We also gave this nursing home a strong grade in short-term care. This nursing home received a B in this area, which happens to be one of our better scores. Our short-term care scores are thought to be most important for people needing rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation generally utilizes higher levels of highly-skilled nursing services. This means not just nursing services, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other types of therapy. We were not able to locate information on registered nurse or physical therapy staffing for this nursing home. The last metric we assessed in this area is the number of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We found that 6.1 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

Another strength of this nursing home is its favorable grade in nursing. We gave them one of our better scores in that area, with a score of D. Nursing grades are tied to levels of nurse staffing. This facility provided a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This number is well below the national average. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing ratings. This facility fared well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Turning to our next area, we gave this facility a D in the area of long-term care. This was the facility's worst category score. If you are seeking anything other than rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each nursing home's long-term care grades. Once we assessed the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination records. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is better than the average nursing home. To our surprise, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home had less hospitalizations than most nursing homes. Sadly, some of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.
