Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

In addition to being a respectable nursing home overall, this facility also excelled in the area of inspections, where it received an A+. Few facilities performed better in this category. Inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these issues by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This facility received 6 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This means that the government inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies an immediate threat to resident safety or health. A couple relatively minor deficiencies aren't something to panic about.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

One of this nursing home's better category grades was in the category of short-term care. This wound up being its second most respectable category. In that category, we gave this nursing home a B-. Our short-term care grade is generally employed to judge a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation. In order to have highly graded rehabilitation services, facilities generally must offer better levels of skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other licensed professionals. Fortunately, this nursing home offers both physical therapists and registered nurses. Not all facilities offer both. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. In fact, we found that it outperformed the majority of nursing homes with 54.8 percent of its patients returning home. This is a higher rate than most nursing homes.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

This nursing home's third best category ended up being its long-term care score, where it received a grade of C. Our long-term care scores are more critical for individuals requiring more conventional assistance related to activities of daily living. In addition to assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home provided the vaccine to 99.68944 percent of its residents. This nursing home was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. Although it had 3.5 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, its risk adjusted statistic was better than the majority of nursing homes due to it having more complex patients.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

This nursing home's worst category was nursing, which is the last area we assessed. In this category, we gave this facility a grade of just D. The nursing score weighs a number of data points. The most important variable is the number of hours nurses spent with patients. This nursing home averages 3.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day, which is below the national average. To pair with its subpar totals in the area of nursing hours per resident, this nursing home also did not perform as well in the quality-based measures we looked at in calculating our nursing grades. We looked at the percent of residents experiencing major falls and pressure ulcers. This facility had more pressure ulcers and falls than the average nursing home.
