Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

With an overall grade this high, it should come as no surprise that this facility performed well in inspections, where it earned an A-. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing these inspection scores. One of those factors is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some are quite minor. This facility received 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This tells you that the inspectors did not deem any of these deficiencies to cause an imminent risk to patient health or safety. Remember that deficiency-free inspection reports are rare in this industry.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

One of the other reasons we graded this facility so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing grade. Nursing proved to be its second best category grade. In that category, we gave this nursing home an A-. There are quite a few criteria included in this grade. Most of these datapoints are tied to staffing levels. This nursing home averages 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This facility 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.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This facility also was given an impressive long-term care score. Indeed, we awarded it an above average grade of B+ in this area. Long-term care scores of this caliber generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. Once we looked at the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 99.50556 percent of its patients for pneumonia. Vaccines are critical to keeping patients out of the hospital. Finally, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Switching gears to our last area, this nursing home also excelled in our short-term care category. We awarded it a grade of B+ in that area. This finalized a very impressive profile. Short-term care grades are meaningful for prospective residents looking for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally utilizes more highly-skilled nursing. This means a vast scope of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final item we considered in this area is the number of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that 0 percent of this nursing home's patients were able to return home.
