Facility Inspections

Grade: A

This facility received a quality overall grade as described above, but we especially wanted to point out its nearly flawless government inspections in recent years. We awarded it an A in this category. Our inspection ratings are based on several pieces of information located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes that excel in this area tend to have very few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these facilities should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. Sadly, this nursing home was assessed a category L deficiency, which is unexpected based on its inspection score. This category indicates the government inspectors uncovered a widespread deficiency putting resident safety or health in immediate jeopardy. In spite of this major red flag, other aspects of this facility's inspection report gave us some hope.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

This facility received high grades in the area of nursing as well. In fact, it received one of our highest grades in that category with a score of A-. Nursing scores are primarily tied to the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home averages 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This nursing home performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a nursing home has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can frequently be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The third highest area we gave this facility in any area came in the category of long-term care, where we gave it a grade of B-. In forming these long-term care grades, we quantify the facility's ability to maintain its permanent residents' health and quality of life. After considering the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we then looked at the facility's vaccination record. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is more than most nursing homes. This nursing home also excelled at keeping 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 number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

Turning to the next category, this facility was awarded a decent short-term care score of B-. Our short-term care ratings are critical for individuals seeking rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically mandates more highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes a vast range of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. However, according to the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we considered the number of patients who were able to return home from this facility. We found that 4.5 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was actually quite a bit below the national average.
