Facility Inspections

Grade: A

To go along with its decent overall grade, we gave this facility a grade of A for our inspections rating. This score is far better than the facility's overall grade. Inspection ratings weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this place had a few minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G through L. This tells you the government inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Remember that deficiency-free inspections are uncommon in this industry.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

One of the other reasons we rated this facility so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing rating. Nursing proved to be its second best category grade. In that area, we awarded this facility a grade of B-. Our nursing score is based on several subcategories, but the paramount consideration is the level of nurse hours per patient per week. This nursing home provides 3.1 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Although this place didn't really impress in terms of the quantity of nursing care provided, it performed admirably in some of our quality-based metrics. In fact, it was above average in two of the major statistics we assess, with good scores for minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. These areas are measures of the quality of nursing care provided since many bed sores and falls can be avoided.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facility's next most favorable area is long-term care. In that area, we awarded this nursing home a grade of B-. In our long-term care category, we weigh the volume of care offered by a nursing home, as well as a handful of qualitative statistics. Once we looked at the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination records. This nursing home vaccinated 94.314384 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is higher than the average nursing home. Finally, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 1.68 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility had fewer hospitalizations than most nursing homes.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The next area we analyzed is short-term care. This facility received a grade of C in this category. In the category of short-term care, we endeavor to evaluate indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We assess a facility's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. This nursing home is respectable both in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its residents. Finally, we assessed the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that it performed decently in this area, with 47.1 percent of its residents returning home.
