Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

This facility received a solid overall grade as described above, but we really wanted to point out its excellent government inspection reports in recent years. We gave them an impressive grade of A- in this category. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating these inspection ratings. One critical factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these can be relatively minor. Fortunately, although this place had some minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you that the inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A few minor deficiencies shouldn't stop you from considering a nursing home.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home's second best category is its short-term care score, where it was awarded a grade of B-. In our short-term care rating, we endeavor to forge a meaningful gauge for rehabilitation. In this process, we assess a facility's level of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. Unfortunately, this place was below average in terms of its level of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its patients based on the metrics we assessed. Lastly, we looked at the number of residents who returned home from this nursing home. We found that 5.9 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was quite a bit below the national average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

This facility's third best area ended up being its long-term care grade, where it was given a C. In a long-term care setting, the primary goal is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. Once we looked at the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination statistics. Candidly, we were a bit concerned this nursing home vaccinated 83.22147 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which happens to be quite a bit below the national average. Nevertheless, this nursing home keeps its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

The final area we looked at was nursing, which turned out to be this nursing home's least impressive category. We gave this nursing home a grade of D in this area. Our nursing rating considers several factors. The most important one is the number of hours nurses spend with residents. With just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis, this place's nurse staffing levels were quite a bit below the national average. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing ratings. This facility performed well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
