Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

We want to point out that this nursing home outperformed its overall grade in the category of inspections. In fact, it received a nearly flawless inspection report this year. As a result, we gave it one of our best scores in this category with a grade of A+. These inspection scores take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This particular nursing home received 4 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a good inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

In addition, we awarded this nursing home a B+ in our long-term care category. This happens to be one of our more impressive grades. For long-term care residents, the nursing home's primary goal is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. One of the datapoints we considered after nursing hours is vaccinations. This facility provided the pneumonia vaccine to 92.85715 percent of its patients. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

This nursing home's nursing grade appears to be one of its better features. The facility received a grade of C in this category. When computing our nursing ratings, we analyze both staffing levels and the training levels of those nurses. This facility provides only 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This is a somewhat uninspiring figure as it is well below average. Finally, our nursing scores also factor in quality-based measures, such as avoiding major falls. Despite not having the highest total nursing hours, this place performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is generally a good indicator that a facility has sufficient quality controls in place. Some falls could be avoided if a nursing home supplies enough nurses to assist its residents.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The final category we graded was short-term care, which ended up being this nursing home's weakest area. We gave it an abysmal F for this category, which is clearly very disappointing. Our short-term care ratings are based in part on the facility's quantity of skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This includes a broad spectrum of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other types of therapy. It appears that this facility was subpar in terms of its quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its patients based on the staffing figures we looked at. Finally, we looked at the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that just 4.9 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
