Facility Inspections

Grade: A+

One of the many reasons this turned out to be a quality nursing home is that it received an A+ inspection grade. This is simply as good as it gets in this critical category. Inspection scores are tied to several pieces of information found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places that score well in this category tend to have very few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these nursing homes should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. It does not appear that we have deficiency counts for this nursing home. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

To add to its high-end performance in other areas, we gave this nursing home a score of A for its long-term care score. For prospective residents looking for a permanent residence rather than rehabilitation, long-term care is an important category. In addition to considering the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 48.888885 percent of its patients. This is somewhat lower than we anticipated. While its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we had hoped, we were pleased to find place was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

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+. The nursing grade weighs numerous factors. The most heavily weighted factor is the quantity of hours nurses spend with patients. This facility provided 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed very well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

The last category we graded was short-term care, where this nursing home was awarded a B. This actually proved to be this nursing home's least impressive category. A nursing home is doing something right when their poorest score still is better than most other facilities. In the category of short-term care, we endeavor to assess indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We analyze the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we assessed the percentage of patients who who were able to eventually return home from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this facility's patients returned home.
