Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

This nursing home earned an inspection score which is stronger than its overall score. Inspection grades are associated with the facility's recent inspections. We awarded this nursing home an above average grade of B+ in this category. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing these inspection scores. One key factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some can be quite minor. This nursing home was hit with 7 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This tells you that CMS didn't deem any of the deficiencies to be an immediate threat to resident health or safety. The fact that the deficiencies were relatively minor made us feel better about this inspection report.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

We also awarded this facility a favorable grade in nursing. This facility earned a grade of B in this category, which is one of our better grades. Our nursing rating is primarily based on a nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home averages 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This place performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a place has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can many times be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home's third most favorable category came in the area of short-term care. In that area, we gave this facility a B-. In the category of short-term care, we seek to evaluate indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We analyze the facility's skilled nursing services, including the ones performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. Not all facilities employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last measure we assessed in this category is the number of residents who ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that just 0 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

Moving on to the fourth area, this nursing home was given a C for long-term care, which we consider to be a decent score. In a long-term care setting, the facility's primary objective is to maintain patients' quality of life and keep them safe. Once we assessed the volume of nursing care, we next considered the facility's vaccination records. We were optimistic to learn that this nursing home vaccinates 99.27007 percent of its residents for pneumonia. Finally, this nursing home was also able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
