Facility Inspections

Grade: B

On top of having a decent overall score, we also would like to point out that this nursing home received favorable government inspections in recent years. We gave them one of our better scores in this category, with a grade of B. This is a notably better score than the facility's overall score. Our inspection scores are based on several items located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places that excel in this area have few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these nursing homes should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. Fortunately, although this place had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G through L. This tells you the inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A few minor deficiencies shouldn't stop you from considering a nursing home.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

In addition, we awarded this facility a B in our short-term care category. This happens to be one of our more impressive grades. In computing our short-term care grades, we scrutinize a facility's levels of skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other highly skilled individuals. This grade is more often than not a meaningful assessment of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. However, based on the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last item we looked at in this category is the percentage of residents who ultimately returned home from the nursing home. We found that 5.3 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

This nursing home's third most favorable area was long-term care. We awarded it a C in this category. This is basically a middle of the road grade in this area. In a long-term care setting, the primary goal is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. In addition to considering the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. We discovered that this facility vaccinated just 79.268295 percent of its patients, which is a bit of a concern. Nevertheless, this nursing home was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

Our next area is nursing, in which we gave this facility a C in this area. Nursing scores are based in large part on levels of nurse staffing. This facility provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Finally, despite not having the highest total nursing hours per resident, this facility actually performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is typically a good indicator that a nursing home has sufficient quality controls in place.
