Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

On top of receiving a strong overall score, this nursing home performed even better in the area of inspections which is based on the nursing home's recent inspections. In fact, we gave it an A+ for that category, which is one of our highest grades. Arguably the most critical factor we look at in calculating our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. Facilities with higher scores in this area typically avoided the more severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. 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. Even some of the best nursing homes receive an occasional ding on their inspection report.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

In addition, this nursing home also was given favorable short-term care scores in our assessment. Indeed, we gave them one of our higher grades in that category, with a grade of B+. In our short-term care assessment, we seek to create a sound barometer for rehabilitation. In doing so, we assess a nursing home's offerings of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. Unfortunately, we were not able to track down information about this nursing home's registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. Lastly, we assessed the number of patients that were able to return home from this facility. We found that 6 percent of this nursing home's patients were able to return home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

This nursing home also was given a favorable long-term care score. In fact, we gave it an above average grade of B in this category. When nursing homes receive this kind of score in this category it is typically a good sign for resident care and suggests that the nursing home is well-staffed with nurses aids. Once we looked at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 98.40426 percent of its residents for pneumonia. Vaccines are vital to keeping patients out of the hospital. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

Moving on to our last area, this facility was awarded an acceptable nursing grade of C. Our nursing score weighs a host of subcategories. The most heavily weighted factor is the number of hours nurses spend with residents. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Finally, despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours per resident, this nursing home performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is generally a reliable indicator that a nursing home has quality controls in place.
