Facility Inspections

Grade: A

We want to draw your attention to the fact that this nursing home really outperformed its overall grade in the category of inspections. In fact, it received a nearly flawless inspection report this year. As a result, we gave it one of our highest scores in that area with a grade of A. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining these inspection scores. One of those factors is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be relatively insignificant. It doesn't look like we were able to find deficiency counts for this nursing home. We would like to have more data for this nursing home. Without complete deficiency data, it is difficult to really evaluate the place in terms of this category.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This facility also was awarded a strong short-term care score. Indeed, we awarded them a grade of B+ in that category, which is one of our better. In determining our short-term care scores, we analyze a facility's levels of skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other licensed professionals. This grade is often a fair assessment of a facility's rehabilitation services. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all facilities employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final datapoint we assessed in this category is the percentage of patients that eventually returned home from the facility. We found that 5.3 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

This nursing home also received a strong nursing grade. In fact, we awarded it a grade of B in that category, which is one of our better scores. We weighed the skill-level of nurses working for the facility, in addition to the quantity of time those nurses spent with patients, in determining our grade in this category. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality measures and this facility excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any nursing home the state in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can typically be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as by employing a policy of moving a resident at least once a day.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The last area we assessed is long-term care, which turned out to be this nursing home's weakest area. It received an F for this area, which is certainly a major concern. Long-term care scores of this caliber 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, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination records. We were a bit bothered by the fact that this nursing home vaccinated a relatively low 90.804596 percent of its patients against pneumonia. To our surprise, this nursing home was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility has less hospitalizations than most nursing homes. This is its best score in this category.
