Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

In addition to being a respectable facility overall, this facility also excelled in the category of inspections, where it earned an A-. Few nursing homes performed better in this area. Our inspection grades are based on many datapoints located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities that score well in this area typically have very few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these nursing homes generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. This nursing home was assessed 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This indicates that CMS did not deem any of these deficiencies an immediate threat to patient health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies should not stop you from considering a nursing home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

One of the other reasons we graded this nursing home so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing grade. In fact, nursing proved to be its second best category grade. In that area, we awarded this nursing home an C. There are numerous factors included in this grade. Most of these criteria are tied to staffing levels. This facility provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Lastly, although this nursing home got dinged a bit for nursing hours per resident, it actually excelled in a few of our quality-based measures. With fewer than five percent of its residents suffering from pressure ulcers, it did very well in this subcategory.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The next category we looked at is short-term care, where this facility received a grade of C in this category. In our short-term care assessment, we attempt to craft a valuable gauge for rehabilitation. In doing so, we analyze the nursing home's offerings of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. In this place's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than the average facility. The last statistic we assessed in this category is the percentage of residents who eventually returned home from the facility. We found that just 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

Turning to the fourth area, this nursing home was given a C for long-term care, which we consider to be a respectable score. Our long-term care grade is used to grade a facility's performance as a traditional convalescent home, as opposed to focusing more on the skilled nursing services offered by a skilled nursing facility. Once we looked at the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then looked at the facility's vaccination records. This facility vaccinated 93.36283 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which happens to be a few points less than we anticipated but still a reasonably acceptable percentage. On a more positive note, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
