Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

This nursing home received a solid overall grade as described above, but we really wanted to emphasize its nearly flawless health inspection reports in recent years. We gave them an A- in this category. Our inspection ratings are based on many pieces of information located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes that score well in this category typically have few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these facilities should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. This facility was assessed 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered to be major deficiencies. This indicates that the inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies to create an imminent threat to resident safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies should not stop you from considering a nursing home.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home's next best category is short-term care. In that category, we gave this facility a grade of B-. Our short-term care scores are considered to be more meaningful for individuals needing rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation usually requires higher levels of skilled nursing services. This includes not just nursing, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. Unfortunately, this facility was below average in terms of its level of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its residents based on the metrics we assessed. The final item we assessed in this category is the number of patients that eventually returned home from the nursing home. This facility performed better in this statistic. We found that it fared better than most facilities in this metric with 53 percent of its residents returning 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-. In determining our nursing scores, we weigh both nursing hours and the training levels of those nurses. This facility averages just 3.2 hours of nursing care per patient per day, which is a very low figure. Lastly, our nursing ratings also factor in some quality-focused statistics. We especially look at the percentage of patients who sustained pressure ulcers and major falls. These statistics are decent measures of the quality of nursing care, since superior care tends to reduce these issues.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

This nursing home's worst area is long-term care, which is the final area we assessed. In this area, we gave this facility a grade of just D. For prospective residents seeking a permanent place to live rather than skilled nursing, long-term care is a very important category. After looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination statistics. We were optimistic to learn that this nursing home vaccinated 95.14563 percent of its residents against pneumonia. To our surprise, this place was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. It had only 1.52 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Sadly, a few of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.
