Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

One of the reasons this proved to be a decent facility is that it earned a favorable inspection grade. In that category, we awarded this facility a B+. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing these inspection scores. One critical factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be relatively insignificant. This place was assessed 6 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This tells you that the inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies to be an immediate threat to patient safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies should not stop you from considering a nursing home.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This nursing home also was awarded a positive grade in our short-term care category. We awarded this facility an above average grade of B+ in this area. In calculating our short-term care grades, we analyze a facility's levels of highly skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists respiratory therapists and other licensed professionals. This category is typically a meaningful assessment of a nursing home's rehabilitation. Unfortunately, we weren't able to find registered nurse or physical therapy staffing data for this facility. Lastly, we considered the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 6.2 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

Next, we looked at the nursing category where we awarded this nursing home a grade of B-, which is a decent grade. The nursing score assesses quite a few components, most of which are associated with nursing hours. This particular facility provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This figure is far below average. Lastly, despite not having the highest total nursing hours, this nursing home performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is often a good indicator that a nursing home has sufficient quality controls in place.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The next area we scored is long-term care. Unfortunately, we gave it a lowly F for this area, which is a bottom of the barrel grade. This is certainly a significant disappointment. For prospective patients looking for a permanent residence rather than skilled nursing, long-term care is an important category. One of the statistics we considered in addition to nurse's aid hours was vaccines. Thankfully, this facility provided the pneumonia vaccine to 100 percent of its patients. Surprisingly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility has fewer hospitalizations than most nursing homes. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.
