Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

In addition to being a respectable facility overall, this place really excelled in the area of inspections, where it received an A+. Few facilities performed better in this area. Our inspection ratings weigh several factors found on a nursing home's inspection reports. One key criteria we rely on is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with better grades in this area typically have few severe deficiencies. While this facility had some minor dings on its report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means CMS 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 the end of the world.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

This facility also excelled in nursing, where it earned an B. Few places performed better in this area. Our nursing rating is mostly tied to the nursing home's nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed very well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home's next best category is short-term care. In that category, we awarded this facility a B-. With our short-term care grade, we seek to forge a valuable gauge for rehabilitation. In doing so, we assess a nursing home's level of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we considered the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 5.9 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most nursing homes, closer to half of their patients are able to return home so this figure is below average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Turning to the fourth area, we gave this facility a D for long-term care. This was the nursing home's worst category rating. Unfortunately, this grade hurt the nursing home's overall grade a bit. Facilities that do not fare well in long-term care often don't provide as much nursing care and also may be lagging in some of the areas of routine personal care we looked at. Once we concluded our assessment of the volume of nursing care, we turned to the facility's vaccination record. Frankly, we were a bit bothered by the fact that this facility vaccinated a relatively low 85.39604 percent of its residents for pneumonia. Surprisingly, this place was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility has fewer hospitalizations than most nursing homes. This is its best feature in this category.
