Facility Inspections

Grade: A

To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A for our inspections rating. Inspection scores weigh several factors, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can find more information about each of these issues by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this place had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G through L. This means that the inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A few relatively minor dings are not necessarily the end of the world.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

This nursing home fared well in the category of short-term care. As a result, we awarded it a grade of A- for that area, which happens to be one of our most elite scores. With our short-term care rating, we attempt to forge a sound measure for rehabilitation. In this process, we look at the nursing home's offerings of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we looked at the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 6.4 percent of this nursing home'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. Our nursing rating is based on quite a few factors, but the primary consideration is the quantity of nurse hours per patient per week. This particular nursing home provided 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This place 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.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The next area we assessed is this nursing home's poorest category. Nevertheless, even in its worst category we still awarded it an acceptable grade of C in long-term care. For patients looking for a permanent place to live rather than rehabilitation, long-term care grades are a key measure. One of the criteria we considered on top of nurse's aid hours was vaccinations. Frankly, we were a bit bothered by the fact that this facility provided the pneumonia vaccination to a relatively low 89.20187 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 an impressively low number.
