Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

We want to point out that this facility really outperformed its overall grade in the area of inspections. In fact, it received a nearly flawless inspection report this year. As a result, we gave it one of our best scores in that area with an A-. Inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these issues by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This nursing home was hit with 9 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This indicates that the inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies to create an imminent risk to resident safety or health. Keep in mind that deficiency-free inspections are uncommon in this industry.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

Additionally, we also wanted to note that this facility was given strong short-term care marks this year. We awarded them one of our more impressive grades in that area, with a B. This turned out to be the nursing home's second strongest grade. In our short-term care assessment, we endeavor to create a sound barometer for rehabilitation. In this process, we assess the facility's offerings of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. It doesn't look like this facility provided registered nurse or physical therapist staffing data. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 5.1 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

This nursing home also received a strong nursing grade. In fact, we awarded it a grade of B in that category, which is one of our better scores. There are a variety of subcategories within this area. Many of the subcategories relate to staffing levels. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home 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.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The last category we analyzed is long-term care. We awarded this nursing home a C in this category. For long-term care residents, the nursing home's primary objective is to maintain patients' quality of life and keep them safe. Once we assessed the volume of care provided by nurses, we then looked at the facility's vaccination records. We were pleased to discover that this facility vaccinated 100 percent of its residents for pneumonia. This place was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.04 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
