Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

We want to draw your attention to the fact that this nursing home really outperformed its overall grade in the area of inspections. In fact, it received an excellent inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our highest scores in that category with a grade of A+. Inspection ratings weigh several factors, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these issues 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

This facility also was awarded a favorable long-term care grade. In fact, we awarded it a grade of B in that area, which happens to be one of our more favorable scores. Facilities that do well in this category typically are well-staffed and provide extensive hands on care to patients. On top of assessing the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 97.1831 percent of its patients, which is much higher than most nursing homes. Finally, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 1.53 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home had fewer hospitalizations than the average nursing home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home's next best category was nursing. We awarded it a grade of B- in this category. This is basically a middle of the road grade in this category. When computing a facility's nursing score, we weigh the amount of time nurses are seeing residents and the level of skill of those nurses. Based on the CMS data, this nursing home offers 3.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing ratings. This place performed well in terms of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The next category we assessed was short-term care. We awarded this nursing home a grade of D in short-term care, leaving this as its weakest category grade. Our short-term care scores are presumably more important for residents requiring rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation typically requires higher levels of skilled nursing services. This includes not just nursing, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. It appears that this place was below average in terms of its quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its residents based on the measures we assessed. The last area we considered in this area is the number of residents that eventually returned home from the nursing home. This place fared better in this area, with 50.3 percent of its patients returning home. This was just about this nursing home's only redeeming quality in this area.
