Facility Inspections

Grade: A

To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A for our inspections rating. Our inspection scores are tied to several items found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes that score well in this area have few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these nursing homes generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. Although this facility had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. A couple relatively minor dings are not necessarily something to panic about.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

Building on its strong performance in other areas, we awarded this nursing home an B+ for our nursing rating. Nursing grades are primarily associated with the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality measures and this facility excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any place the state in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can often be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as having a policy of moving a resident more frequently.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

This nursing home was awarded a strong short-term care score as well. We awarded it one of our higher grades in that area with a grade of B. Our short-term care grades are meaningful for patients seeking rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually requires more highly-skilled nursing. This includes a vast range of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final statistic we considered in this category is the percentage of patients who ultimately returned home from the nursing home. We found that 4.3 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The last category we looked at is long-term care. This facility was given a very good long-term care score in our assessment, with a grade of B-. Even though this wasn't as good as many of its other category grades, this remains a decent rating for that category. In a long-term care environment, the facility's primary goal is to maintain patients' quality of life and keep them safe. After assessing the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then looked at the facility's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 99.6139 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is more than the vast majority of nursing homes. Lastly, this facility was also 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.
