Facility Inspections

Grade: A

In addition to receiving a strong overall grade, this place also earned first-rate health inspections in recent years. We awarded it one of our better grades in this area, with an A. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining our inspection scores. One critical factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more important than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be relatively insignificant. While this facility had some minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means that the government inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Remember that deficiency-free inspections are uncommon in the industry.

With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any facility the state in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can often be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as employing a policy of turning residents more often.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

Switching gears to our next category, this nursing home was given an acceptable long-term care rating. Although this was not quite as strong as many of its other grades, this is truly not a major area of concern.
