Facility Inspections

Grade: A

This facility received a solid overall grade as described above, but we really wanted to emphasize its nearly flawless government inspection reports in recent years. We awarded them an A in this category. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating these inspection ratings. One key factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be quite minor. This facility received 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This tells you that the government inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies to pose an imminent risk to patient safety or health. The fact that none of the deficiencies were severe made us feel better about this inspection report.

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 gave this nursing home an B. There are a host of datapoints included in this grade. Many of these datapoints relate to levels of nurse staffing. This facility provided 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This nursing home performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a facility has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can typically be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

We also awarded this facility a middle of the pack score in the category of short-term care, where we awarded it a B-. Our short-term care scores are probably more meaningful for individuals needing a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically mandates more highly-skilled nursing. This means not merely nursing services, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Unfortunately, we weren't able to track down information on registered nurse or physical therapy staffing for this nursing home. The final statistic we considered in this category is the number of residents who ultimately returned home from the facility. We found that just 5 percent of this facility's patients returned home. This figure was below average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

This facility's worst area was long-term care, which is the final area we looked at. In this area, we awarded this nursing home a grade of just D. Long-term care ratings in this range generally are a bad sign for the quantity and quality of care provided by nurses and aids. After considering the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 91.85083 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which happens to be a few points less than we expected but still a reasonably acceptable figure. To our surprise, this facility actually fared well at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had just 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This was its best score in this category.
