Facility Inspections

Grade: B

While this nursing home earned a decent overall score, its inspections grade is notably more impressive than its overall score. Due to a strong inspection report this year, it received a strong score in that category with a B. Inspection ratings account for a host of factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Places with higher grades in this category tend to have very few of these severe deficiencies. This place was hit with 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered severe. This indicates that CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies to be an imminent risk to patient safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies shouldn't stop you from considering a nursing home.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facility's next best category is short-term care. In that area, we gave this nursing home a grade of B-. In the area of short-term care, we strive to evaluate measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We analyze a facility's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and various therapists. We found that this place was below average in the two key staffing areas we looked at. The facility supplied fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. It is still important to determine whether this is adversely impacting the quality of care. The final metric we assessed in this category is the number of residents who returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

This nursing home's next best category was nursing. We awarded it a grade of C in this category. This is basically a middle of the road grade in this category. Our nursing score assesses quite a few factors, most of which are tied to levels of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this nursing home surprisingly excelled in some of the quality-based metrics we looked at. It scored well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be reliable measures of the quality of nursing care. In many cases, the quality of nursing care is every bit as important as the quantity of hours of care provided.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The last category we graded was long-term care. For this category, we awarded this facility a grade of C. In a long-term care environment, the primary objective is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. In addition to assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 96.75926 percent of its residents. Lastly, this facility was also able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
