Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

To pair with a favorable overall score, we gave this facility an A+ for our inspection category. Our inspection scores weigh several factors included in a nursing home's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we rely on is the number and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with better grades in this area usually have very few severe deficiencies. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Even some of the best nursing homes receive an occasional ding on their inspection report.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

Contributing to this nursing home's list of achievements, it also was awarded a first-rate short-term care score. We awarded them a dominant strong of A in this category. In the area of short-term care, we endeavor to evaluate measures of a facility's rehabilitation. We assess the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last measure we looked at in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We discovered that 6.3 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home's next best category was nursing. We awarded it a grade of B- in this category. While this wasn't quite as good as some of its other category grades, this isn't a bad score either. The nursing rating weighs a variety of subcategories. The most important factor is the number of hours nurses spent with residents. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This figure is significantly below the national average. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics. While this place got docked a bit for nursing hours per resident, it excelled in a few of these quality metrics. With fewer than five percent of its patients experiencing pressure ulcers, it performed remarkably well in this area. This is typically an indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can generally be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as by having a protocol of turning a patient at least once a day.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The next area we assessed was long-term care. In this category, we awarded this facility a solid grade of B-. This actually is this nursing home's least impressive category. Long-term care grades are used to grade a nursing home's performance as a traditional nursing home, as opposed to focusing on the skilled nursing services provided by a rehabilitation facility. One of the statistics we considered on top of nurse's aid hours is vaccines. Thankfully, this nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccine to 99.32705 percent of its residents. Lastly, this facility was also able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
