Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

While we were not complementary of this place's overall performance, it actually received an impressive inspection report this year with few dings from the applicable government inspectors. As a result, it received one of our better grades in that category with a B+. These inspection scores take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these items by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Fortunately, although this facility had some minor dings on its government inspection 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 didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

This facility received its next best category score in the area of long-term care. We gave this facility a grade of C in this category, which is a reasonably acceptable score. In a long-term care environment, the nursing home's primary objective is to maintain patients' quality of life and keep them safe. On top of looking at the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 76.99115 percent of its residents. This is pretty significantly below what we were hoping for. Fortunately, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. While it had 1.79 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, its risk adjusted metric was better than the majority of nursing homes due to it having more complicated patients.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

We awarded this facility a respectable grade in the area of nursing as well, with a grade of C. The nursing grade includes a handful of datapoints, many of which are based on nursing hours. This facility provides only 3.1 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is a somewhat concerning figure as it is well below the national average. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality measures. Although this place got docked a bit for nursing hours per resident, it actually excelled in some of these quality-based metrics. With less than five percent of its residents suffering from pressure ulcers, it fared very well in this statistic. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can typically be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as employing a policy of turning a patient more often.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The last category we rated was short-term care. In this category, we awarded this nursing home a C. In determining these short-term care ratings, we look at the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. Our purpose is to formulate a scale for comparing the rehabilitation services of different facilities. We were surprised to find that this place was below average in the two key staffing areas we looked at. In fact, it offered fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other nursing homes. The last statistic we assessed in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. This proved to be a stronger area than its staffing metrics. It performed well in this area with 56.3 percent of its patients returning home. This was a big boost to its score in this category.
