Facility Inspections

Grade: A

To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home an A for our inspections rating. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining these inspection grades. One critical factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these are quite insignificant. 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.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Additionally, this facility also was awarded favorable long-term care scores in our assessment. In fact, we gave them one of our better grades in that category, with a score of B+. When nursing homes receive a score in this range in this category it typically means it has plenty of staff and is an overall good place to reside on a permanent basis. After considering the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination record. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is far higher than the majority of nursing homes. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

This facility is also strong in the area of nursing, where it received a grade of B+. It outperformed most nursing homes in this category. Our nursing rating considers a number of subcategories. The most important variable is the number of hours nurses spend with residents. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This nursing home performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a nursing home has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can many times be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

Turning to our next area, this nursing home was given a C for short-term care, which is a respectable grade. Short-term care grades are based on the nursing home's quantity of skilled nursing services. This includes a vast scope of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, in addition to other types of therapy. It doesn't look like this facility submitted information on registered nurse or physical therapist staffing. The last statistic we looked at in this area is the number of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 5.1 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is below average.
