Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

This facility received a solid overall grade as described above, but we really wanted to point out its nearly flawless health inspections in recent years. We gave them an impressive grade of A+ in this category. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating our inspection scores. One key factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more important than the number of deficiencies, as some of these are relatively minor. This nursing home was hit with 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be severe. This means that CMS didn't consider any of the deficiencies to create an immediate risk to resident safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies are not necessarily something to panic about.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facility was awarded its second highest category score in the area of short-term care. We gave this nursing home a B- in this area, which is a respectable grade. With our short-term care assessment, we seek to craft a sound measure for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we look at the nursing home's scope of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. One reason for this facility's strong score in this category is that it provides a greater volume of physical therapist hours to its residents than the average nursing home. Finally, we assessed the number of residents that ultimately were able to return home from this nursing home. It performed better than most nursing homes with 53.4 percent of its residents returning home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The third category we assessed is long-term care, where this nursing home was given a C in this category. In crafting our long-term care grades, we assess the facility's personal care services. After we finished assessing the amount of care provided by nurses, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination records. This nursing home vaccinated 92.88703 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Fortunately, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Although it had 2 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, its risk adjusted metric was better than the majority of nursing homes due to it having some more complicated patients.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

Moving on to our next area, this facility was given a respectable nursing grade of C. Nursing grades are mostly tied to a facility's nurse staffing. This nursing home averages 3.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Although this place excelled in terms of quantity of nursing hours, it fell short in some of the data points that related to quality. This facility's nursing rating was pulled down by its subpar performance in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers. In fact, we found that 12.2 percent of this facility's patients suffered from pressure ulcers.
