Facility Inspections

Grade: A

The primary reason this nursing home received a decent overall score is its impeccable government inspections in recent years. We gave it one of our higher scores in that area, with an A. This is a notably better grade than the facility's overall grade, which was decent but not in the elite range. Our inspection ratings are tied to many items found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places that excel in this area typically have few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these facilities should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. Although this place had a few deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. A few minor deficiencies are not something to panic about.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

We also gave this nursing home a middle of the road grade in the area of short-term care, with a grade of B-. In our short-term care category, we attempt to create a meaningful barometer for rehabilitation. In doing so, we look at the facility's level of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 5 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most nursing homes, closer to half of their residents are able to return home so this figure is below average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facility's next best category was its nursing grade, where it received a grade of B-. The nursing rating weighs several subcategories. The most heavily weighted factor is the amount of time nurses spent with patients. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Finally, despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours, this place actually performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is usually an indicator that a nursing home has quality controls in place.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The final category we rated is long-term care. We awarded this facility a C in this area. For prospective residents in need of a permanent residence rather than skilled nursing, long-term care is a very important category. Once we finished looking at the amount of care provided by nurses, we next considered the facility's vaccination record. We were pleased to find that this nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Finally, this facility was also able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
