Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

In addition to being a respectable facility overall, this facility really excelled in the area of inspections, where it earned an A-. Few facilities performed better in this category. These 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. This place was hit with 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered to be major deficiencies. This means that the government inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies to pose an immediate risk to resident health or safety. The fact that the deficiencies were relatively minor made us feel better about this inspection report.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

This nursing home also received a strong grade in our nursing category. We awarded this nursing home an above average grade of B+ in this area. Nursing scores are mostly associated with a facility's nurse staffing. This particular nursing home provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This nursing home performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a nursing home has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can typically be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

This facility also was awarded an impressive grade in our short-term care category. We awarded this facility an above average grade of B in this area. In calculating our short-term care ratings, we analyze the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The purpose is to devise a barometer for sizing up the rehabilitation services of various facilities. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. However, according to the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final metric we looked at in this area is the percentage of residents who eventually returned home from the facility. We found that 5.4 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Switching gears to our last category, this nursing home really did not perform well. Due to a poor grade of F in long-term care, this was its poorest category. Facilities that do not fare well in long-term care often don't provide as much nursing care and also may be lagging in some of the areas of routine medical care we assessed. One of the criteria we considered in addition to nursing hours was vaccines. Candidly, we were a bit worried that this facility administered the pneumonia vaccination to a relatively low 86.454185 percent of its residents. To our surprise, this nursing home was actually decent at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had just 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This was its best feature in this category.
