Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

In addition to receiving a strong overall rating, this facility performed even better in the area of inspections which is based on the facility's recent inspections. We gave it an A+ for this area, which is one of our best scores. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating our inspection scores. One key factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these can be quite insignificant. This nursing home was assessed 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered severe. This tells you that the government inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies to be an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

Adding to this nursing home's list of accomplishments, it also was given a superb long-term care grade. We gave them an impressive grade of A in this category. When facilities receive this kind of grade in long-term care it is a good sign for resident care and indicates that the nursing home is well-staffed with nurses and aids. Once we looked at the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination records. This facility vaccinated 98.92857 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is significantly higher than the vast majority of nursing homes. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

Next, we looked at the nursing category where we awarded this nursing home a grade of C. This facility didn't perform quite as well in this category as it did in some other categories. Nevertheless, this is still a respectable score. Our nursing score includes a host of subcategories. The most heavily weighted factor is the amount of time nurses spend with patients. This place provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this place fared better in some of the quality-based metrics we looked at. It performed well in terms of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The final category we rated is short-term care, is this facility's least impressive area. We gave this facility a grade of D in this category. This really was one of just a couple of dings on a quality profile. In the category of short-term care, we attempt to qualify indicators of a facility's rehabilitation services. We analyze the facility's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. Unfortunately, this nursing home was below average in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its residents based on the measures we assessed. Lastly, we assessed the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that just 4.1 percent of this facility's patients returned home.
