Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

It should also be noted that this facility's inspection grade outpaced its overall grade. In fact, we awarded it a grade of B+ for its inspections grade, which is one of our better scores. Arguably the most critical factor we look at in calculating our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes with better scores in this area typically dodged the more severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. This facility was assessed 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered severe. This indicates that CMS didn't consider any of these deficiencies to pose an imminent threat to resident safety or health. A few minor deficiencies shouldn't lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

This nursing home also received a strong nursing grade. In fact, we awarded it a grade of B in that category, which is one of our better scores. Nursing scores are largely based on a nursing home's nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 3.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality measures and this facility excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any facility the nation in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can generally be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as by having a policy of moving a patient more frequently.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The third area we graded was long-term care, where this facility was awarded a grade of C in this category. Our long-term care grades are more meaningful for individuals in need of more conventional services related to personal care. One of the factors we considered in addition to nurse's aid hours was vaccinations. Thankfully, this facility administered the pneumonia vaccine to 94.38776 percent of its patients. Lastly, this facility was also able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The next area we analyzed was short-term care, which turned out to be a weak link for this nursing home. We gave this facility a D for the area of short-term care. With our short-term care category, we strive to forge a valuable measure for rehabilitation. In doing so, we look at the nursing home's level of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. In this nursing home's case, it looks like it offered fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the typical facility. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of residents who eventually returned home from this facility. It fared better in this area, with 54.2 percent of its patients returning home.
