Facility Inspections

Grade: A

This nursing home received a quality overall grade as described above, but we especially wanted to emphasize its excellent government inspections in recent years. We awarded them an A in this area. Inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This facility was hit with 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This means that the government inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies to be an immediate risk to patient health or safety. A couple relatively minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

One of the other reasons we graded this facility so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing grade. Nursing turned out to be its second best category grade. In that area, we awarded this nursing home an B. In computing a facility's nursing rating, we assess the amount of time nurses are caring for residents and the skill levels of the nurses. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This place performed very well in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

This nursing home is also strong in the category of short-term care, where it was given a score of B. It performed more favorably than most facilities in this area. Short-term care scores are meaningful for patients requiring rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically utilizes higher levels of highly-skilled nursing. This means a wide spectrum of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other types of therapy. We were not able to track down information about this nursing home's registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. Lastly, we considered the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 5.1 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

Turning to the fourth category, this nursing home received a decent long-term care grade of B-. Long-term care grades are generally used to measure a nursing home's performance as a traditional convalescent home, as opposed to focusing on the skilled nursing services provided by a skilled nursing facility. After assessing the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then looked at the facility's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is better than most nursing homes. Lastly, this place was also able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
