Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

While this nursing home's overall grade was not bad, it really excelled in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A- for that category, which is one of our highest scores. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating these inspection grades. One key factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these are quite minor. Unfortunately, we weren't able to track down deficiency counts for this nursing home. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Another one of this facility's higher category scores was in the category of long-term care. In that area, we awarded this nursing home a B+. If you are looking for services other than rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each facility's long-term care ratings. Once we assessed the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 85.815605 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which happens to be a bit less than we expected but still a decent percentage. Finally, we looked at its number of hospitalizations. With 1.9 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility was just about middle of the road in this area.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

Next, we looked at the nursing category where we awarded this nursing home a grade of B-, which is a decent grade. We looked at the skill-level of nurses working for the nursing home, in addition to the quantity of time those nurses were with patients, in determining our grade in this category. This place provided just 2.8 hours of nursing care per patient each day, which is a relatively low figure. Nevertheless, more than a quarter of those hours were provided by registered nurses, which are one of the more highly skilled levels of nurses. This is a high ratio of skilled nursing care, which we weight more in our nursing scores. Finally, despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours, this nursing home actually performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is generally a good indicator that a place has quality controls in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The last area we analyzed is short-term care. In this category, we awarded this nursing home a grade of C. Our short-term care ratings are critical for prospective residents in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually utilizes more skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means a vast scope of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. One of this nursing home's strengths is registered nurse hours. We found that it offers more care from registered nurses to its residents than most facilities. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of patients who were able to return home from this nursing home. We found that 37.4 percent of this nursing home's patients were able to return home. This figure was actually below the national average.
