Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

To go along with its favorable overall performance, we gave this facility an A- for our inspections rating. Inspection grades are based on pieces of information found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities that receive favorable grades in this area tend to have very few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these nursing homes generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. Fortunately, although this facility had a few minor dings on its inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means the inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. The fact that the deficiencies were relatively minor made us feel better about this inspection report.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

One of the other reasons we graded this nursing home so favorably is that it was awarded a dominant short-term care score. Indeed, short-term care ended up being its second most impressive category score. In that category, we gave this facility a score of A-. In the category of short-term care, we attempt to assess indicators of a facility's rehabilitation. We analyze a facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and various therapists. Fortunately, it looks like 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, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we considered the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 5.7 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

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. When calculating a facility's nursing rating, we consider the amount of time nurses are seeing residents and the skill levels of those nurses. This nursing home provides 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed very well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

Our final area is long-term care, where we gave this nursing home a grade of C in that area. Long-term care grades assess a facility's personal care rather than the highly skilled nursing and medical services that are critical to a skilled nursing facility. One of the statistics we considered after nursing hours is vaccinations. This nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccination to 92.59259 percent of its patients. Fortunately, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
