Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

On top of being a quality facility overall, this place especially excelled in our inspections category, where it received an A+. Few nursing homes performed better in this category. Inspection grades are based on many pieces of information located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities that receive favorable grades in this category tend to have very few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these facilities should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

This facility received high marks in the category of long-term care as well. Indeed, it received one of our most favorable scores in that area with a score of A-. When nursing homes receive a grade in this range in this category it typically means it has plenty of staff and is a quality place to reside on a permanent basis. On top of assessing the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 99.2126 percent of its residents. Vaccines are vital to keeping residents out of the hospital. Finally, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

This facility's next best category grade came in the area of nursing. In that category, we gave this nursing home a grade of C. This wasn't quite on par with some of its other category grades mentioned above. The nursing rating weighs a handful of subcategories, most of which are based on levels of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this place fared better in some of the quality-based metrics we assessed. In fact, it scored well in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these areas to be measures of the quality of nursing care. In many cases, the quality of nursing care is as important as the number of hours of care provided.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

Turning to our last category, this facility received a C in short-term care, which we consider to be a respectable grade. Short-term care scores are crucial for people looking for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually utilizes additional skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means a wide range of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we considered the number of residents that eventually returned home from this nursing home. We found that 4.3 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was actually quite a bit below the national average.
