Facility Inspections

Grade: A

In addition to being a respectable facility overall, this place really excelled in the area of inspections, where it earned an A. Few facilities performed better in this area. Our inspection grades weigh several factors included in a nursing home's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we rely on is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Places with better scores in this area generally have very few severe deficiencies. While this facility had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G through L. This means 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 lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

We also gave this facility a respectable grade in the category of long-term care, where it received a B-. In computing our long-term care grades, we scrutinize the personal care offered to the nursing home's patients. On top of considering the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 99.19355 percent of its residents. Lastly, 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.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The third area we graded was short-term care. In that category, we gave this facility a solid grade of C. Short-term care ratings are critical for prospective residents seeking rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually requires higher levels of highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means a wide spectrum of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other types of therapy. We were surprised to find that this facility was below average in the two key staffing areas we focus on. It offered fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other facilities. Finally, we looked at the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 5.2 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: D

The final category we rated was nursing, which is a weak spot for this facility. We gave this nursing home a grade of D for our nursing category. Our nursing rating is based on numerous factors. The most heavily weighted factor is the amount of time nurses spent with residents. This facility provided only 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing scores. This place fared well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
