Facility Inspections

Grade: A

To go along with its decent overall grade, we awarded this facility an A for its inspection grade. This score is far better than the facility's overall rating. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing our inspection grades. One critical factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some of these are quite minor. Although this facility had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. Remember that deficiency-free inspection reports are uncommon in the industry.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

This nursing home also received a strong nursing grade. In fact, we awarded it a grade of B+ in that category, which is one of our better scores. Our nursing score is largely tied to a facility's nurse staffing. This place boasts a really impressive 4.1 hours of nursing care per patient daily, of which a significant percentage was provided by registered nurses. This is one of the most highly highly trained levels of nurses. This is one of the higher totals of nursing hours we found at any facility. On top of offering high levels of care, this place also performed well in several of the quality measures we looked at. For example, in terms of the percentage of its residents suffering falls resulting in serious injury, this place performed as well as any nursing home the country. Avoiding major falls is generally an indicator that a facility has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can generally be prevented if more nurses and better safety protocols are employed.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home was given its third most favorable category score in the category of short-term care. We awarded this nursing home a B- in this category, which is a decent score. In our short-term care category, we attempt to create a sound gauge for rehabilitation services. In this process, we look at a nursing home's scope of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. This nursing home excelled in the two key staffing areas we looked at. The facility provided more care from physical therapists and registered nurses than the typical nursing home. Finally, we considered the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 32.9 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most facilities, closer to half of their patients are able to return home so this is below average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

This facility's least impressive area was long-term care, which is the final category we analyzed. We gave it an F in this category. Despite a few solid scores in other areas, this grade is nevertheless disappointing so we would like to to make sure you are aware. When nursing homes receive this type of score in this category it is typically a bad sign for resident care and it may indicate that the facility is not as well-staffed. While we determined this nursing home had an above average volume of nursing hours provided by aids and other nursing staff, we found its vaccination rate to be somewhat slightly lower than we anticipated. It gave the pneumonia vaccine to just 78.35051 percent of its patients. This is a figure we would love to see this facility bring up. To our surprise, this facility was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home has less hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. This is its best feature in this category.
