Facility Inspections

Grade: A

To pair with its strong overall performance, we awarded this nursing home an A for our inspections rating. Inspection scores are based on pieces of information located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes that score well in this area 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. This place was assessed 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be severe. This tells you that the government inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies to pose an imminent threat to resident health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Adding to its profile, this nursing home also received a score of B+ for its long-term care rating. This is a well above average grade in this area. For prospective residents looking for a permanent place to live as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care is an important category. In addition to assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 87.93103 percent of its residents. This is somewhat lower than we expected but still a respectable percentage. Although its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we had hoped, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

This nursing home's third highest area was its short-term care score, where it was awarded a C. Our short-term care grade is commonly employed to judge a facility's performance with rehabilitation To have highly scored rehabilitation services, facilities generally must have higher levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other types of therapists. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we looked at the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 5.1 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most facilities, closer to half of their residents are able to return home so this figure is below average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

Switching gears to our fourth category, this facility was awarded a grade of C in nursing, which is generally an acceptable score. Our nursing score is based on numerous factors. The most heavily weighted one is the amount of time nurses spent with patients. This place provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is a much lower figure than we were hoping for. Lastly, our nursing ratings also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. Despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours, this place actually performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is typically a good indicator that a facility has quality controls in place. Some falls could be avoided if a nursing home provides enough nurses aids to assist its patients.
