Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

The main reason this ended up being a decent nursing home is that it earned an elite inspection grade. Its inspection score was far better than its overall score. In our inspections category, we gave it an A+. Perhaps the most critical factor we look at in determining our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Places with higher scores in this area most likely dodged the most severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. This place received 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This tells you that the government inspectors did not deem any of these deficiencies an immediate risk to patient safety or health. We should point out that deficiency-free inspection reports are uncommon in the industry.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home received its next most favorable category score in the category of short-term care. We gave this facility a B- in this area, which is an acceptable grade. Our short-term care grades are presumably more critical for individuals requiring rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation generally requires higher levels of skilled nursing services. This includes not just nursing, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like this nursing home provided data regarding its registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. Finally, we assessed the percentage of residents that were able to return home from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was actually quite a bit below average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

One of this facility's better category grades was in the area of nursing care. In that area, we gave this facility a grade of B-. In determining a facility's nursing rating, we consider the amount of time nurses spend with residents as well as the skill levels of those nurses. This particular facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This figure is significantly below the national average. Lastly, despite not having the highest total nursing hours, this nursing home performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is often a reliable indicator that a place has quality controls in place.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The next category we scored was long-term care. This nursing home was given a grade of C for the category. Our long-term care grade is used to grade a facility's performance as a traditional nursing home, as opposed to focusing on the skilled nursing services offered by a rehabilitation facility. On top of considering the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients. Lastly, this nursing home was also able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
