Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

The primary reason this nursing home received a decent overall grade is its impeccable inspections in recent years. We awarded it one of our better scores in that category, with an A-. This is a notably better score than the facility's overall grade, which was decent but not in the elite range. These inspection ratings weigh several factors, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these issues by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Fortunately, although this nursing home had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G through L. This tells you that the government inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies shouldn't stop you from considering a nursing home.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Additionally, we also wanted to point out that this facility was given impressive short-term care marks this year. We awarded them one of our more impressive grades in this area, with a grade of B+. This turned out to be the nursing home's second highest grade. Our short-term care grades are critical for patients looking for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually requires more skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes a wide range of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not all facilities employs these types of nurses. However, based on the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final datapoint we looked at in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We found that 6 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

Turning to another strength for this facility, it also earned an elite nursing rating. In fact, we gave this facility a grade of D. Nursing grades are heavily correlated with nurse staffing levels. With a meager 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis, this facility's nurse staffing levels were quite a bit below average. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing grades. This place fared well when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The last category we graded was long-term care, proved to be this nursing home's least impressive category. We awarded this facility a grade of D in that area. Long-term care scores of this caliber generally are a bad sign for the quantity and quality of care provided by nurses and aids, as well as the levels of routine medical care available. Once we assessed the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination data. Frankly, we were a bit concerned this nursing home vaccinated 77.43056 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which happens to be several points below the national average. Surprisingly, this place was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility has fewer hospitalizations than many nursing homes. This was its best score in this category.
