Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A+ for our inspections rating. Inspection grades are based on several datapoints found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities that receive favorable grades in this area typically have very few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these places should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. This place was assessed 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This indicates that the inspectors did not deem any of these deficiencies to create an imminent risk to patient health or safety. Keep in mind that deficiency-free inspection reports are uncommon in the industry.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

Among this nursing home's other achievements is its top-shelf long-term care score. We gave them one of our better scores in that category, with a grade of A-. For residents in need of a permanent residence as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care grades are very important. One of the criteria we considered in addition to nursing hours was vaccinations. This facility administered the pneumonia vaccine to 81.27263 percent of its patients. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

Another one of this facility's impressive category grades came in the area of nursing care. We awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with a grade of B. Our nursing grade assesses a handful of components, but the primary consideration is the number of nurse hours spent with patients. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This place performed very well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

This facility's weakest category was short-term care, which is the last category we scored. For this category, we awarded this nursing home a D. Our short-term care grades are based in part on a nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This includes a broad scope of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other types of therapy. We found that this nursing home was below average in terms of its quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its patients based on the staffing figures we considered. The last statistic we assessed in this category is the percentage of patients that eventually returned home from the facility. This facility struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 3.3 percent of its residents returning home. Unfortunately, this was quite a bit below average.
