Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

We would like to point out that this nursing home's inspection grade exceeded its overall score. This facility earned a B+ in this area, which is one of our better grades. Arguably the most critical factor we look at in computing our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Facilities with better grades in this category typically dodged the more severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Based on this, we had a generally favorable view of this facility's recent inspections.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

In addition, we awarded this nursing home a grade of B in our nursing category. This is one of our better grades. In computing our nursing ratings, we factor in both the number of hours nurses spend with residents and the levels of licensure of the nurses. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This place performed very well in terms of 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: C

The third area we looked at was long-term care. In that category, we gave this nursing home a C. In our long-term care category, we focus more on the amount of care offered by a nursing home, as well as a few qualitative measures. One of the criteria we considered after nursing hours was vaccines. We were a bit bothered by the fact that this nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccination to only 80.89887 percent of its patients. Nevertheless, this place was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The final area we scored is short-term care, is this nursing home's worst area. We gave this nursing home a grade of D in that area. With our short-term care assessment, we strive to forge a meaningful measure for rehabilitation services. In this process, we analyze the nursing home's level of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. With its weak score in this area, we were not surprised to discover this nursing home offered far fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. The final datapoint we assessed in this area is the number of residents that eventually returned home from the facility. This facility struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 3.2 percent of its patients returning home. This was well below average.
