Facility Inspections

Grade: A

To pair with its decent overall grade, we gave this nursing home an A for our inspections rating. This score is far better than its overall grade. Inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this facility had a few minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you that the inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A couple minor dings are not necessarily the end of the world.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facility's short-term care score ended up being one of its higher scores. The facility was awarded a grade of B- in this area. In the area of short-term care, we seek to qualify indicators of a facility's rehabilitation. We analyze the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. Unfortunately, we were not able to track down registered nurse or physical therapy staffing data for this nursing home. The last statistic we assessed in this category is the number of residents who returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 43 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facility's next best category grade came in the area of nursing. In that category, we gave this nursing home a grade of B-. There are a host of datapoints within this area. Many of these subcategories reflect levels of nurse staffing. This nursing home averages just 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Finally, we also factored a few quality-based metrics into our nursing ratings. This nursing home was subpar in a few of the major areas we focus on, with below average scores for minimizing its patients' major falls and pressure ulcers. These areas are generally indicators of the quality of nursing care offered.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The last category we rated was long-term care. We awarded this facility a grade of D for the area of long-term care, rendering this the nursing home's least impressive area. If you are looking for services other than rehabilitation, you should take a close look at long-term care ratings. Once we assessed the amount of care provided by nurses, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination record. We were optimistic to learn that this facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients against pneumonia. To our surprise, this facility also fared well at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had just 0.92 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.
