Facility Inspections

Grade: A

While this nursing home's overall grade was not bad, it really fared well in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A for that category, which is one of our highest scores. Inspection grades weigh a host of factors included in a nursing home's inspection report. One key criteria we consider is the number and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with better grades in this area tend to have very few severe deficiencies. While this place had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you that the inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Remember that deficiency-free inspection reports are uncommon in this industry.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

Another one of this nursing home's more impressive category grades was in the area of short-term care. In that area, we awarded this facility a grade of B. It actually fared better than most facilities in this area. Our short-term care scores are probably most meaningful for people requiring a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally utilizes more skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes not merely nursing services, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. One of this facility's strengths is physical therapy. We found that it provides at least one and a half times as many hours of physical therapy as most other facilities. The last measure we assessed in this area is the percentage of patients that ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that it performed as well as just about any facility in Virginia in this area with 58.4 percent of its patients returning home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facility was awarded its third most favorable category score in the area of long-term care. We awarded this facility a grade of B- in this category, which is an acceptable grade. In calculating our long-term care grades, we assess the facility's personal care services. One of the criteria we considered on top of nurse's aid hours is vaccines. Thankfully, this facility provided the pneumonia vaccination to 99.27885 percent of its patients. Finally, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 1.2 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home has less hospitalizations than many nursing homes.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

The next category we looked at was nursing. We awarded it a grade of B- in that category. This is not a bad grade in this category. In determining our nursing ratings, we analyze both staffing levels and the skill levels of the nurses. This nursing home provided just 3.1 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This figure is significantly below average. Finally, although this place got docked a bit for nursing hours per resident, it actually excelled in a few of our quality-based measures. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it fared well in this statistic.
