One of the reasons this place is a strong facility is that it received a very impressive inspection score. In fact, inspections turned out to be its best category. In this area, we awarded it an A+. Inspection scores weigh a host of factors found on a nursing home's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we consider is the number and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with better scores in this category usually have very few severe deficiencies. This particular nursing home received 3 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.

Another quality feature for this nursing home is that it was given a favorable long-term care score. In fact, this turned out to be its second best category score. In this category, we awarded this facility a B.

Indeed, it had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The next area we graded is short-term care, where this facility was given a B- in this area. Our short-term care ratings are based on a nursing home's quantity of skilled highly skilled professionals. This means a vast range of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, not to mention other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 4.8 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most nursing homes, closer to half of their residents are able to return home so this figure is below average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

The final area we looked at is nursing. For that category, we gave this nursing home a grade of C. In calculating a nursing home's nursing rating, we weigh the amount of time nurses are with patients as well as the skill levels of the nurses. This nursing home averages 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient daily, which is a very low figure. Lastly, we also factored some quality measures into our nursing scores. This place was relatively weak in two of the major metrics we look at, with below average scores for minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. These areas are usually reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care provided.
