Facility Inspections

Grade: A

This nursing home earned a solid overall grade as described above, but we really wanted to point out its excellent government inspections in recent years. We awarded them an A in this category. Inspection ratings account for several factors found on a facility's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we rely on is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with higher grades in this category usually have few severe deficiencies. This nursing home received 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This tells you that the inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies an immediate threat to patient health or safety. Keep in mind that deficiency-free inspection reports are rare in the industry.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

Another one of this nursing home's more favorable category scores came in the category of short-term care. In that category, we gave this facility a B. It actually performed better than most facilities in this area. Short-term care grades are based on the nursing home's quantity of skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This means a vast range of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. It does not appear that this facility submitted data regarding its registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. Finally, we assessed the percentage of residents who were able to return home from this facility. We found that 4.6 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

This nursing home's next best category was nursing. We awarded it a grade of C in this category. This is basically a middle of the road grade in this category. When calculating a facility's nursing score, we assess the number of hours nurses commit to patients and the levels of training of the nurses. This facility provided just 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Lastly, despite not having the highest total nursing hours, this facility actually performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is generally a reliable indicator that a nursing home has sufficient quality controls in place.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

Our last category is long-term care, in which we awarded this facility a C in this category. For long-term care residents, the nursing home's primary objective is to maintain patients' quality of life and keep them safe. On top of looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 94.82758 percent of its residents. This facility keeps its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
