Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

In addition to earning a great overall grade, this nursing home performed even better in the area of inspections which is based on the facility's recent inspection reports. We gave it a grade of A- for that category, which is one of our best grades. Inspection grades are tied to several pieces of information located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places that score well in this area have very few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these facilities should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. While this place had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you that the government inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A couple relatively minor deficiencies aren't necessarily something to panic about.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

Contributing to its profile, this nursing home also received a grade of B for its short-term care rating. This is a well above average score in this area. In determining our short-term care ratings, we analyze the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The goal is to create a tool for sizing up the rehabilitation services of different facilities. This nursing home employs both physical therapists and registered nurses. Not all facilities employ these skilled professionals. Finally, we assessed the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. This proved to be a real strength for this facility. It outperformed the vast majority of nursing homes with 57.4 percent of its patients returning home. This is a significantly higher rate than most nursing homes.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

This facility also received a strong long-term care score. In fact, we awarded it an above average grade of B in this area. Long-term care scores of this caliber generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. One of the criteria we considered in addition to nurse's aid hours is vaccines. This nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccine to 78.65168 percent of its patients. While its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we had hoped, at least this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 1.7 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home has fewer hospitalizations than the average nursing home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

Turning to our last category, this nursing home was awarded a decent nursing grade of B-. We scrutinized the qualifications of nurses at the facility, as well as the quantity of hours those nurses worked with patients, in determining our grade in this area. This nursing home provides 3.7 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also factored a few quality measures into our nursing grades. This facility was relatively weak in some of the areas we focus on, with below average scores for minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. These areas are often good indicators of the quality of nursing care provided.
