Facility Inspections

Grade: A

This nursing home received a strong overall score as described above, but we especially want to point out its excellent inspections in recent years. We awarded it an impressive grade of A in this area. Our inspection scores weigh several factors included in a facility's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we rely on is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with higher grades in this category generally have few severe deficiencies. This particular nursing home received 8 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a good inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

We also gave this nursing home a decent score in the category of nursing care, with a grade of B-. Nursing ratings are mostly tied to a facility's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home averages just 2.9 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Finally, nursing ratings also consider quality-based measures, such as preventing major falls. Despite not having the highest total nursing hours, this place actually performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is usually a good indicator that a nursing home has sufficient quality controls in place. Some falls could be avoided if a facility provides enough nurses aids to assist its residents.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The next highest category we awarded this nursing home in any category came in the category of short-term care, where we gave it a grade of B-. In the category of short-term care, we strive to assess indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We assess a nursing home's skilled nursing services, including the ones performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. We were pleased to find that this nursing home employs both registered nurses and physical therapists. The same can't be said for all nursing homes. The final measure we assessed in this area is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. This proved to be a stronger area than its staffing data. This place performed well in this metric with 57.8 percent of its patients returning home. This was a boost to its grade in this area.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The last area we rated is long-term care. In that category, we awarded this nursing home a B-. With our long-term care grade, we focus more on the quantity of services offered by a nursing home, as well as a handful of qualitative metrics. One of the criteria we considered after nurse's aid hours was vaccinations. Thankfully, this nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccination to 100 percent of its patients. Lastly, this facility was also able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
