Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

On top of performing well in its overall grade, this facility performed at an even higher level in the area of inspections. In fact, it received a nearly flawless inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our highest grades in that category with a score of A-. These inspection scores weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This place received 9 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This means that the inspectors didn't deem any of these deficiencies to pose an imminent risk to resident safety or health. Keep in mind that deficiency-free inspections are rare in this industry.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

Adding to its strong performance in other areas, we awarded this nursing home an B+ for our nursing rating. Nursing grades are primarily tied to the facility's nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This nursing home performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a place has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can typically be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

Turning to the third area, this nursing home also earned a grade of B for its short-term care rating. This is a well above average grade in this area. Our short-term care ratings are considered to be more meaningful for patients requiring rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation generally requires additional skilled nursing services. This means not merely nursing services, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last statistic we assessed in this category is the number of patients that who were able to eventually return home from the nursing home. We found that 4.4 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The final category we scored was long-term care. We awarded it a C in this category. This is not a bad grade in this category. For residents looking for a permanent residence rather than skilled nursing, long-term care is an important category. On top of considering the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Thankfully, this nursing home administered the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients, which is a very respectable figure. Finally, this place was also able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
