Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

This nursing home earned an inspection score which is better than its overall rating. Inspection ratings are associated with a facility's recent health inspections. We awarded this facility an above average grade of B+ in this category. These inspection ratings weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Although this facility had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were severe based on CMS' scale. A few minor deficiencies should not lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

Another one of this nursing home's more favorable category scores was in the category of short-term care. In that area, we awarded this facility a B. In computing our short-term care scores, we analyze a facility's levels of highly skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other licensed professionals. This grade is more often than not a solid measure of the nursing home's ability to rehabilitate patients. When we assessed this facility's nursing hours, we found it offered more care from registered nurses than most nursing homes. The last metric we assessed in this area is the number of residents who returned home from the facility. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home permanently.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

Next, we looked at the nursing category where we awarded this nursing home a grade of B-, which is a decent grade. Our nursing rating includes a variety of subcategories. The most important factor is the number of hours nurses spend with residents. This facility provided just 2.8 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Finally, nursing scores also factor in quality-based assessments, such as preventing major falls. Despite not having the highest total nursing hours per resident, this place performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is typically a good indicator that a facility has quality controls in place. Some falls can be avoided if a facility supplies enough nurses to assist its residents.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

This nursing home's least impressive category was long-term care, which is the final category we scored. In this category, we gave this facility a grade of just D. Nursing homes that don't 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. On top of considering the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Frankly, we were a bit concerned this nursing home administered the vaccine to a relatively low 68.06722 percent of its residents. Finally, we looked at the facility's number of hospitalizations. Here we found that this facility fared poorly with 3.04 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Unfortunately, this figure is nearly double the national average.
