Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

The primary reason this facility received a decent overall score is its impeccable inspections in recent years. We gave them one of our better scores in that area, with an A+. This is a much better score than the facility's overall score, which was decent but certainly not elite. Arguably the most significant factor we consider in calculating our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Nursing homes with better scores in this category typically dodged the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. This nursing home received 7 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be major deficiencies. This indicates that the inspectors did not deem any of these deficiencies to cause an imminent risk to resident safety or health. A couple of minor deficiencies should not stop you from considering a nursing home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

This nursing home's long-term care rating appears to be one of its higher grades. The facility was awarded a grade of C in this category. Our long-term care grades are more important for individuals in need of more traditional assistance associated with activities of daily living. On top of looking at the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. We found that this facility provided the vaccine to just 47.058823 percent of its patients, which is a bit of a concern. Finally, we looked at the facility's number of hospitalizations. With 1.98 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility is also slightly below the national average.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

We also gave this nursing home a respectable grade in the area of short-term care, with a C. Our short-term care scores are presumably more important for patients in need of rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation usually mandates more skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means not just nursing services, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. This nursing home is respectable both in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its residents. The last metric we considered in this area is the number of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We found that it was respectable in this metric with 46.6 percent of its patients returning home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

Switching gears to our next area, this facility was awarded a grade of C in nursing, which we consider to be an acceptable grade. There are a number of data points within this area. Most of the criteria reflect the quantity and quality of nurse staffing. 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, our nursing ratings also factor in quality-based assessments, such as preventing major falls. While this nursing home did not have as many nursing hours per resident as many other nursing homes we assessed, it was still better than average in the area of preventing falls. This is generally an indicator of how carefully a nursing home's nursing staff is tending to its residents. Major falls can many times be avoided if more nurses aids and safety protocols are in place.
