Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

In addition to earning a strong overall grade, this facility performed even better in the area of inspections which is based on the nursing home's recent government inspections. We awarded it an A+ for this area, which is one of our highest scores. These inspection ratings weigh several factors, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these issues by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this place had a few minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means that the inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. The fact that none of the deficiencies were severe made us feel better about this inspection report.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Another one of this facility's above average category grades came in the area of long-term care. We awarded them one of our better scores in that category, with a grade of B+. Facilities that receive this kind of score in this category tend to provide consistent around the clock care to ensure patients are well cared for. Once we assessed the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 91.48936 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which happens to be somewhat below what we expected but still a reasonably acceptable percentage. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facility's next best category grade came in the area of nursing. In that category, we gave this nursing home a grade of B-. This wasn't quite on par with some of its other category grades mentioned above. The nursing score considers numerous datapoints. The most important factor is the amount of time nurses spend with patients. This nursing home averages just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this place actually fared better in some of the quality measures we looked at. It scored well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The final category we analyzed was short-term care. We awarded it a C in this category. This is a fair grade in this area. With our short-term care grade, we attempt to craft a fair barometer for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we assess a nursing home's levels of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. It does not look like this nursing home provided information on registered nurse or physical therapist staffing. The final item we assessed in this area is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 4.8 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is below average.
