Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

This nursing home's overall grade was propped up by the fact that it has received favorable government inspections in recent years. We awarded it one of our better scores in that category, with a grade of B+. This is a notably better grade than the nursing home's overall grade. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating our inspection ratings. One of those factors is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some of these can be quite insignificant. Fortunately, although this facility had a few minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means the inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A couple relatively minor dings aren't something to panic about.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

This facility also excelled in the category of nursing, where it received a grade of B. Nursing grades are primarily based on a nursing home's nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This place performed very well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The third area we graded was long-term care. In that area, we awarded this facility a decent grade of B-. Long-term care grades are vital for residents looking for non-healthcare services such as personal care. Once we finished looking at the amount of care provided by nurses, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination statistics. We were optimistic to find that this facility vaccinates 99.06977 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Finally, this nursing home was also able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

Switching gears to our next category, this facility was given a grade of B- in short-term care, which we consider to be an acceptable rating. Short-term care scores are based in part on the facility's quantity of highly-skilled highly skilled professionals. This includes a wide spectrum of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, in addition to other forms of therapy. Unfortunately, it does not appear that this nursing home provided registered nurse or physical therapist staffing data. Finally, we assessed the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 5.2 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most nursing homes, closer to half of their residents are able to return home so this figure is below average.
