Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A+ for our inspections rating. Perhaps the most important factor we look at in determining our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. Nursing homes with higher scores in this area typically dodged the more severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. 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. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

This facility performed well in our long-term care category. As a result, we awarded it a grade of A- for that area, which turns out to be one of our most favorable grades. Long-term care grades in this range generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. After looking at the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination records. This nursing home vaccinated 89.701 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which happens to be a few points below what we were hoping for but still a respectable percentage. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The third area we analyzed is short-term care. In that category, we gave this facility a decent grade of C. Our short-term care grade is commonly used to grade a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation To provide highly scored rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must have better levels of skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other types of therapists. Unfortunately, it doesn't appear that this facility provided data regarding its registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. The last metric we considered in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that just 5.9 percent of this facility's residents returned home. This figure was below the national average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

This nursing home's worst area was nursing, which is the last category we assessed. In this area, we gave this nursing home a grade of D. The nursing rating analyzes many components, many of which are associated with nursing hours. With a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis, this facility's nurse staffing levels were far below average. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing ratings. This place performed well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
