Facility Inspections

Grade: A

To pair with its decent overall grade, we gave this facility an A for its inspection grade. This score is far more impressive than the facility's overall grade. Perhaps the most critical factor we look at in calculating our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places with higher scores in this category typically dodged the more severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. This nursing home was assessed 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This tells you that the government inspectors didn't consider any of these deficiencies to be an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A few minor dings are not necessarily something to panic about.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

One of the other reasons we rated this nursing home so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing grade. In that area, we awarded this nursing home an B+. There are many criteria included in this grade. Most of the subcategories reflect staffing levels. This particular nursing home provided 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This place performed very well in terms of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

This facility also was given a positive grade in our short-term care category. We awarded this facility an above average grade of B in this area. Our short-term care ratings are believed to be more important for residents needing rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation typically mandates more skilled nursing services. This means not merely nursing, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. However, according to the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last item we looked at in this area is the number of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We found that 5 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Moving on to the fourth area, this facility really did not perform very well. Due to a very poor grade of F in long-term care, this is its worst category grade. When facilities receive this type of score in long-term care it is a bad sign for patient care and it may mean that the facility is not as well-staffed. In addition to considering the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 90.60403 percent of its residents. This is many points lower than average. To our surprise, this facility was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility has fewer hospitalizations than the average nursing home. This is its best feature in this category.
