Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

The primary reason this facility received a decent overall score is its impeccable health inspections in recent years. We gave it one of our better grades in that area, with an A-. This is a much better grade than the place's overall grade, which was decent but certainly not elite. These inspection ratings take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can find more information about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This nursing home received 7 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This means that CMS did not deem any of these deficiencies to create an immediate threat to resident health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies should not stop you from considering a nursing home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

This nursing home performed well in our nursing category. In fact, we gave it a grade of C for that category, which is one of our best grades. Our nursing grade analyzes the facility's level of nurse staffing. We look at both the levels of licensure of those nurses and the quantity of hours spent with residents. 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 nursing home fared better in some of the quality-based metrics we assessed. It performed well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these areas to be indicators of the quality of nursing care. In some cases, the quality of nursing care is every bit as important as the number of hours of care offered.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

This nursing home's next best area is long-term care. We awarded it a C in this category. This is essentially a slightly below average score in this category. Our long-term care grade assesses a nursing home's assistance with daily living instead of the skilled therapy or healthcare services that are critical to a rehabilitation facility. After considering the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination record. We were pleased to learn that this nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients for pneumonia. This nursing home also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The last area we rated is short-term care. We awarded this nursing home a C in that category. Short-term care scores are important for patients looking for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically requires more skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means a broad range of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Unfortunately, we found that this nursing home provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other nursing homes. The tricky part is determining what bearing this had on the quality of care. Lastly, we considered the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 4.3 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most nursing homes, closer to half of their residents are able to return home so this figure is below average.
