Facility Inspections

Grade: A

To pair with its decent overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A for our inspections rating. This score is far better than its overall score. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing our inspection grades. One critical factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some end up being relatively insignificant. This place was hit with 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered severe. This tells you that the inspectors didn't consider any of these deficiencies to pose an immediate threat to resident safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies should not lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

We also awarded this nursing home a solid grade in the area of long-term care, where it received a B-. Long-term care grades focus on a nursing home's assistance with daily living instead of the skilled therapy or healthcare services that are critical to a skilled nursing facility. On top of assessing the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its residents. This facility keeps its patients out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

Moving on to another strength for this facility, it also received an elite nursing score. In fact, we gave this nursing home an D. Our nursing grade focuses on the nursing home's nurse staffing levels. We consider both the levels of licensure of the nurses as well as the quantity of hours spent with patients. With just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis, this nursing home's nurse staffing levels were significantly below average. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing scores. This nursing home performed well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

This nursing home's weakest area was short-term care, which is the last area we assessed. In this category, we gave this nursing home a grade of just D. In our short-term care category, we strive to forge a fair measure for rehabilitation. In doing so, we analyze the facility's offerings of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. Considering its score in this area, we weren't stunned to discover that this nursing home is well below average in terms of its number of registered nurse and physical therapy hours offered to its patients based on the measures we assessed. Honestly, this was what we expected here. The final statistic we looked at in this area is the number of residents who returned home from the nursing home. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 4.4 percent of its residents returning home. Unfortunately, this was well below the national average.
