Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

In addition to receiving a solid overall score, this nursing home also received strong health inspections in recent years. We awarded them one of our better scores in this area, with a B+. Arguably the most critical factor we look at in calculating our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a facility's inspection reports. Nursing homes with higher grades in this category most likely dodged the most severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. Fortunately, although this place had a few minor dings on its inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G through L. This tells you the government inspectors did not 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 leaves us less concerned with this inspection report.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

Building on its strong performance in other categories, we awarded this nursing home an B+ for our nursing rating. The nursing rating weighs a variety of subcategories. The most heavily weighted variable is the amount of time nurses spent with patients. This nursing home provides 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This place performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a facility has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can generally be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Additionally, this facility also was given favorable short-term care grades in our assessment. In fact, we gave them one of our more favorable scores in that area, with a score of B+. In the category of short-term care, we strive to assess indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We look at a nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. It doesn't appear that this nursing home submitted information about its staffing of registered nurses or physical therapists. Lastly, we considered the number of patients that were able to return home from this facility. We found that 5.3 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The next category we scored was long-term care. We gave this facility a grade of B- in that category. Our long-term care grade is typically used to judge a nursing home's performance as a traditional nursing home, as opposed to focusing on the skilled nursing services provided by a skilled nursing facility. On top of looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. Thankfully, this facility provided the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents, which is a very solid total. This place was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.03 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
