Facility Inspections

Grade: A

To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A for our inspections rating. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating our inspection scores. One of those factors is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more important than the number of deficiencies, as some are relatively insignificant. While this nursing home had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are found in categories G through L. This means the inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. The fact that none of the deficiencies were severe leaves us less concerned with this inspection report.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

One of the other reasons we rated this nursing home so highly is that it was given a strong short-term care score. Indeed, short-term care ended up being its second best category score. In that area, we gave this facility a score of A-. Our short-term care ratings are important for people seeking rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically mandates additional skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means a broad range of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. However, based on the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last datapoint we assessed in this category is the number of residents who were able to leave the facility and return home. We found that 5.6 percent of this nursing home's residents were able to return home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

In addition, this facility also received favorable nursing grades this year. In fact, we awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with a grade of B. When determining a nursing home's nursing grade, we look at the amount of time nurses are seeing patients as well as the level of skill of those nurses. This facility provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed very well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The final area we looked at is long-term care, which proved to be this nursing home's least impressive category. Unfortunately, we gave it an F in this category, which is certainly a bit concerning. Long-term care scores of this caliber generally are a bad sign for the quantity and quality of care provided by nurses and aids. On top of assessing the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. We found that this facility gave the vaccine to a relatively low 86.13862 percent of its residents, which is not a very encouraging sign. Surprisingly, this facility was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home has less hospitalizations than the average nursing home. This was its best feature in this category.
