Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

We want to point out that this nursing home really outperformed its overall grade in the category of inspections. In fact, it received an excellent inspection report this year. As a result, we gave it one of our highest scores in that category with an A+. Perhaps the most critical factor we look at in calculating our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. Places with higher scores in this category most likely avoided the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. Fortunately, although this place had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you that the inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A couple relatively minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

We also awarded this facility a respectable grade in the area of short-term care, where we gave it a grade of B-. Our short-term care grades are meaningful for residents needing rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually mandates higher levels of skilled nursing. This means a vast spectrum of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. We weren't able to find information about this nursing home's registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. Lastly, we assessed the number of patients who returned home from this nursing home. We found that 5.4 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was quite a bit below the national average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

The next highest grade we gave this nursing home in any area came in the category of nursing, where we gave it a grade of C. Our nursing rating analyzes several datapoints, but the main one is the level of nurse hours spent with patients. This place averages just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident daily, which is well below average. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility excelled in some of the quality measures we looked at. In fact, it scored well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these areas to be reliable measures 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

The final category we analyzed is long-term care. We gave this nursing home a C in that area. Long-term care grades assess a nursing home's personal care rather than the highly skilled nursing and healthcare services that are critical to a skilled nursing facility. After assessing the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination statistics. We were optimistic to find that this facility vaccinated 98.71245 percent of its residents for pneumonia. This place keeps its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
