Facility Inspections

Grade: A

To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A for our inspections rating. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining our inspection grades. One of those factors is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some of these can be relatively minor. We weren't able to track down deficiency counts for this nursing home. We wish we had more information about this nursing home. Without having access to complete information regarding deficiencies, it is challenging to grade the place in the area of inspections.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

This facility performed well in the area of short-term care. As a result, we gave it a score of A- for that category, which is one of our higher scores. Short-term care grades are often employed to grade a facility's performance with rehabilitation. To have highly scored rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to provide higher levels of highly skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other highly skilled individuals. Unfortunately, we were not able to find registered nurse or physical therapy staffing data for this facility. Finally, we considered the percentage of patients who were able to return home from this facility. We found that 7.1 percent of this nursing home's residents were able to return home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This nursing home was awarded a strong long-term care grade as well. We gave it one of our higher scores in that area with a score of B+. Long-term care scores in this range generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. Once we finished looking at the volume of care provided by nurses, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination records. This nursing home vaccinated 77.38095 percent of its residents against pneumonia. While its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we had hoped, at least this place was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

The next category we assessed is nursing. In this category, we awarded this nursing home an acceptable grade of B-. This actually proved to be this nursing home's weakest area. We weighed the skill-level of nurses at the nursing home, in addition to the number of hours those nurses were with residents, in determining our rating in this category. This nursing home averages just 0.6 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Lastly, despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours per resident, this facility actually performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is typically a good indicator that a place has sufficient quality controls in place.
