Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

On top of having a decent overall grade, we also would like to point out that this place received favorable health inspections in recent years. We awarded them one of our better scores in this area, with a B+. This is a notably better score than the nursing home's overall score. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining these inspection scores. One critical factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies are relatively minor. This nursing home was hit with 7 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This indicates that the inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies to create an immediate risk to resident safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

In addition, we gave this facility a B in our long-term care category. This happens to be one of our better scores. Nursing homes that receive this kind of grade in long-term care typically provide consistent 24/7 care to ensure patients are kept in good health. Once we looked at the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 89.189186 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which happens to be slightly below what we were hoping for but still a respectable figure. While its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we hoped for, at least this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facilities next best category is short-term care. We gave it a B- in this area. This is basically a middle of the pack score in this area. In computing our short-term care scores, we size up a facility's levels of skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other highly skilled individuals. This score is often a fair assessment of a nursing home's rehabilitation. Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last item we assessed in this area is the number of residents that who were able to eventually return home from the facility. We found that just 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home. This figure was below the national average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

The next area we graded was nursing. We awarded it a C in this area. This is a decent grade in this category. Our nursing score assesses a handful of components, many of which are associated with quantities of nurse staffing. This facility provides only 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a somewhat uninspiring figure as it is well below the national average. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility surprisingly excelled in some of the quality measures we assessed. It performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care. In some cases, the quality of nursing care is just as important as the number of hours of care provided.
