Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

We want to point out that this nursing home outperformed its overall score in the category of inspections. In fact, it received an excellent government inspection report this year. As a result, we gave it one of our best scores in that category with an A+. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating these inspection scores. One of those factors is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more important than the number of deficiencies, as some of these can be quite insignificant. While this nursing home had a few minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you the inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Remember that deficiency-free inspection reports are uncommon in this industry.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

In addition, we also would like to draw your attention to the fact that this nursing home was given positive short-term care marks in this assessment. We awarded them one of our more impressive grades in this category, with a B+. This proved to be the nursing home's second strongest score. Short-term care ratings are crucial for prospective residents seeking rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically utilizes more highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means a broad spectrum of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last statistic we assessed in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the facility and return home. We discovered that 5.4 percent of this nursing home's patients were able to return home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

This nursing home's next best category was nursing. We awarded it a grade of C in this category. This is basically a middle of the road grade in this category. Nursing scores are based in large part on nurse staffing levels. This place averages just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient daily, which is not an impressive total. Finally, our nursing ratings also consider quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. Despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours, this facility performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is usually a good indicator that a nursing home has quality controls in place. Some falls can be avoided if a facility supplies enough nurses to assist its patients.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The final area we rated was long-term care. This facility was awarded a grade of C in the category. In a long-term care setting, the nursing home's primary goal is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. After considering the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination records. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is more than the average nursing home. This place also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
