Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

The primary reason this nursing home received a decent overall grade is its excellent government inspections in recent years. We awarded it one of our higher grades in that category, with an A-. This is a much better grade than the facility's overall grade, which was decent but not in the elite range. Inspection grades take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. 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.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This nursing home also was awarded a favorable score in our short-term care category. We awarded this facility a better than average grade of B+ in that category. Our short-term care ratings are thought to be more important for patients needing rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation typically requires higher levels of skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means not only nursing services, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. However, based on the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final metric we assessed in this area is the number of patients who were able to leave the facility and return home. We discovered that 6.5 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home's nursing grade appears to be one of its better features. The facility received a grade of B- in this category. Nursing ratings are heavily correlated with quantity of nursing care available. This nursing home averages 0.5 hours of nursing care per patient per day, which is not an impressive total. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this place surprisingly excelled in some of the quality-based metrics we looked at. In fact, it scored well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

Turning to the fourth area, this nursing home received an acceptable long-term care grade of C. With our long-term care rating, we look at the amount of services provided by a facility, along with some qualitative statistics. On top of considering the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients, which is higher than the vast majority of nursing homes. Finally, this nursing home was also able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
