Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

On top of receiving a strong overall grade, this place also earned first-rate inspections in recent years. We gave it one of our best grades in that area, with an A+. Our inspection grades are tied to items located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes that score well in this category typically have very few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these nursing homes generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

Additionally, this nursing home also received favorable short-term care scores this year. Indeed, we gave them one of our stronger grades in that category, with a grade of B. In the category of short-term care, we endeavor to evaluate measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We analyze a facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and various therapists. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we considered the number of residents that returned home from this nursing home. We found that 4.9 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

Additionally, this facility also received favorable long-term care scores in our assessment. Indeed, we awarded it one of our more favorable scores in that category, with a grade of B. When nursing homes receive a grade in this range in this category it generally means it's well-staffed and is an overall good place to reside on a permanent basis. On top of considering the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia sadly can be a dangerous illness for nursing home residents so we strongly prefer when a nursing home doesn't leave this to chance. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

Our final area is nursing, in which we awarded this facility a C in this category. We assessed the skill-level of nurses at the facility, as well as the quantity of time the nurses were with patients, in calculating our rating in this category. This place provides only 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This is a somewhat alarming figure which is well below average. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility surprisingly fared better in some of the quality-based metrics we looked at. It performed well in terms of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good measures of the quality of nursing care. In some cases, the quality of nursing care is every bit as important as the quantity of hours of care offered.
