Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

One of the many reasons this turned out to be a quality nursing home is that it received an A+ inspection grade. This is simply as good as it gets in this critical category. Our inspection scores weigh a host of factors found on a facility's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we weigh heavily is the number and severity of deficiencies. Places with better scores in this area usually have very few of these severe deficiencies. This place received 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered to be severe. This means that the inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies to cause an immediate threat to resident health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

This facility truly excelled in the category of short-term care, where we awarded it a grade of A-. Only a select group of nursing homes performed better in this area. Our short-term care scores are likely more important for patients needing a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally utilizes additional highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes not merely 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 nursing home employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we looked at the number of residents who ultimately were able to return home from this nursing home. We found that 6.6 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This nursing home is also strong in the area of long-term care, where it received a grade of B+. It performed better than most nursing homes in this category. When facilities receive this kind of score in this category it is usually a good sign for resident care and indicates that the nursing home is well-staffed with nurses and aids. On top of looking at the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 96.77419 percent of its residents, which is higher than the vast majority of nursing homes. Finally, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

The final category we graded is this facility's weakest area. Nevertheless, even in its worst category we still awarded it a decent grade of C for nursing. The nursing category assesses quite a few components, many of which are based on nursing hours. This facility provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Finally, our nursing ratings also consider quality-based metrics, such as preventing major falls. Despite not having the highest total nursing hours per resident, this place performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is generally a good indicator that a facility has quality controls in place. Some falls can be avoided if a nursing home provides enough nurses to assist its patients.
