Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

We also wanted to emphasize that this nursing home has received near flawless health inspections in recent years. We gave them an impressive grade of A+ in this area. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating our inspection grades. One critical factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some of these end up being quite insignificant. Fortunately, although this nursing home had a few minor dings on its inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G through L. This means the government inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

We also wanted to direct your attention to the fact that this facility performed well in our long-term care rating. We awarded them a dominant grade of A+ in this area. When facilities receive a score in this range in long-term care it generally means it has plenty of staff and is an overall good place to live on a permanent basis. One of the datapoints we considered after nursing hours is vaccinations. This facility administered the pneumonia vaccine to 99.250374 percent of its patients. This is a proven method to minimize unnecessary hospitalizations for the elderly population. Lastly, we looked at the facility's number of hospitalizations. While it had 3.03 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, its risk adjusted score was close to the national average due to it having some more complicated patients.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

Another one of this facility's impressive category grades came in the area of nursing care. We awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with a grade of B+. Our nursing score looks at the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. We weigh both the levels of skill of the nurses and the number of hours spent with residents. This nursing home provided 4 hours of nursing care per patient daily. Roughly a quarter of those hours were provided by registered nurses, which are among the most highly skilled levels of nurses. These are both impressive figures, which typically correlates with quality care. Lastly, this place also performed well in several of the quality-based metrics we assessed. In terms of the number of its residents suffering falls which lead to serious injury, this nursing home performed as well as any facility in the nation.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The last category we rated was short-term care. In this area, we awarded this facility an acceptable grade of B-. This turned out to be this facility's weakest area. In calculating these short-term care ratings, we analyze the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The objective is to formulate a scale for comparing the rehabilitation services of various facilities. This nursing home excelled in the two key staffing areas we looked at. The facility provided more care from physical therapists and registered nurses than the typical facility. The last metric we looked at in this area is the number of residents who eventually returned home from the facility. We found that just 37.1 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home. Unfortunately, this was below the national average.
