Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

To go along with its decent overall score, we awarded this facility an A- for our inspections rating. This is far better than its overall rating. Our inspection scores weigh a host of 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. Facilities with better scores in this area generally have very few severe deficiencies. Fortunately, although this nursing home had some minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G through L. This tells you that 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 lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This facility also was given a favorable short-term care grade. In fact, we gave it a B+ in that category, which is one of our more favorable scores. In computing these short-term care ratings, we quantify the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The purpose is to create a scale for comparing the rehabilitation services of nursing homes. Unfortunately, we were not able to track down information on registered nurse or physical therapy staffing for this nursing home. Finally, we assessed the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 6 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Moving on to the category of long-term care, this facility was awarded a grade of just D in that area. For long-term care residents, the facility's primary goal is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. In addition to looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 99.56616 percent of its residents, which is more than most nursing homes. To our surprise, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility had less hospitalizations than most nursing homes. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

The last area we rated is nursing, which is this facility's least impressive category. Unfortunately, we gave it an abysmal F for this area, which is obviously a major concern. Nursing grades are based in large part on quantity of nursing care available. With just 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient per day, this facility's nurse staffing levels were quite a bit below the national average. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home fared well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
