Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

To go along with its strong overall performance, we gave this place an A+ for our inspections rating. Inspection ratings account for a host of factors included in a nursing home's inspection reports. One key criteria we rely on is the number and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with better grades in this area typically have very few of these severe deficiencies. This place was assessed 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This tells you that the inspectors did not deem any of these deficiencies an imminent threat to resident health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This facility was given an impressive long-term care score as well. We gave it one of our higher grades in that category with a grade of B+. If you are looking for services other than rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each facility's long-term care scores. Once we assessed the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 25.943398 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which happens to be a bit lower than we anticipated but still a reasonably acceptable percentage. Although its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we like to see, we were pleased to find facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facility's next best category was its nursing grade, where it received a grade of B-. While this didn't quite match its scores in some of the categories discussed above, this is still a decent score. Our nursing rating is largely tied to a facility's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Lastly, while this nursing home got docked a bit for its nursing hours per resident, it actually excelled in a few of our quality measures. With less than five percent of its patients experiencing pressure ulcers, it did very well in this area.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

Our last category is short-term care, where we gave this facility a grade of B- in that area. Our short-term care scores are vital for individuals looking for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically mandates higher levels of highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means a broad scope of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. However, according to the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last measure we looked at in this category is the number of residents who were able to leave the facility and return home. We discovered that just 4.9 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is below average.
