Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

To pair with its decent overall score, we gave this nursing home a grade of A+ for our inspections rating. This is far better than the facility's overall score. Our inspection ratings are based on many items found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities that receive favorable grades in this area tend to have very few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these nursing homes generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Even some of the best nursing homes receive an occasional ding on their inspection report.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

In addition, we gave this facility a grade of B in our long-term care category. This is one of our more favorable scores. Nursing homes that receive this type of score in long-term care typically provide consistent around the clock care to make sure patients are kept in good health. On top of assessing the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 65.95744 percent of its patients, which is a few points below what we expected. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

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. There are a variety of datapoints within this category. Most of these subcategories are tied to levels of nurse staffing. This place provides only 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is a somewhat concerning figure which is well below average. Lastly, despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours per resident, this facility performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is often a reliable indicator that a place has sufficient quality controls in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

This facility's least impressive category is short-term care, which is the last area we analyzed. It received an F for this category. In spite of multiple acceptable scores in other categories, this grade is still disappointing so we felt obligated to make sure you are aware. In the category of short-term care, we endeavor to evaluate indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We analyze the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses and various therapists. Unfortunately, this nursing home was below average in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its residents based on the measures we assessed. Finally, we assessed the percentage of patients that ultimately were able to return home from this nursing home. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was well off the national average.
