Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

On top of being a great facility overall, it also earned A+ inspections recently. Its inspections are nearly perfect. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing our inspection scores. One of those factors is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies end up being quite insignificant. Fortunately, although this facility had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G through L. This means that the inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This facility received a favorable long-term care grade as well. We gave it one of our higher grades in that category with a score of B+. When nursing homes receive this type of grade in this category it is usually a good sign for resident care and indicates that the nursing home is well-staffed with nurses and aids. In addition to considering the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents, which is very impressive. Pneumonia is too frequently a dangerous condition for nursing home patients so we strongly prefer when a nursing home doesn't leave its residents vulnerable. Finally, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

Next, we looked at the nursing category where we awarded this nursing home a grade of B-. This facility didn't perform quite as well in this category as it did in some other categories. Nevertheless, this is still a respectable score. Our nursing rating is based on a variety of subcategories. The most heavily weighted one is the quantity of hours nurses spent with patients. This nursing home averages just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Lastly, while this place got docked a bit for nursing hours, it excelled in a few of our quality measures. With less than five percent of its patients sustaining pressure ulcers, it fared well in this subcategory.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The next category we analyzed is short-term care. This facility was awarded a better than average short-term care grade in our assessment, with a grade of B-. Although this was not as elite as many of its other scores, this is nevertheless an acceptable rating in that area. In computing our short-term care scores, we size up a facility's levels of highly skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other highly skilled individuals. This category is typically a solid measure of a facility's rehabilitation services. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all facilities employs these types of nurses. However, based on the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last datapoint we assessed in this category is the number of residents that who were able to eventually return home from the nursing home. We found that just 4.6 percent of this facility's patients returned home. Unfortunately, this was below the national average.
