Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

This nursing home received a solid overall grade as described above, but we really wanted to point out its excellent government inspection reports in recent years. We gave them an impressive grade of A- in this category. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating our inspection ratings. One of those factors is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some end up being quite minor. This particular nursing home received 5 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a good inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

Another one of this nursing home's higher category scores was in the category of short-term care. In that category, we awarded this facility a B. With our short-term care grade, we strive to create a sound gauge for rehabilitation. In this process, we analyze the facility's level of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. However, based on the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last statistic we assessed in this category is the percentage of patients who who were able to eventually return home from the facility. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facilities next most favorable area was long-term care. We awarded it a B- in this area. This is essentially a middle of the road score in this area. For long-term care residents, the facility's primary objective is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. On top of looking at the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 98.82353 percent of its patients, which is higher than the majority of nursing homes. Finally, this place was also able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.03 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

The final category we scored was nursing. We awarded this facility a C in that category. Our nursing rating is primarily based on a facility's nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Lastly, although this place got dinged a bit for its nursing hours, it excelled in a few of our quality measures. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed very well in this area.
