Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

In addition to receiving a strong overall rating, this facility received an A+ inspection rating. This score is based on its recent inspection reports. An A+ in this category is one of the highest complements we can pay to a nursing home. Inspection grades take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can find more information about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. It doesn't appear that we have 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: A-minus

Among this nursing home's other accomplishments is its top-shelf long-term care grade. We gave them one of our more impressive scores in that category, with a score of A-. Long-term care ratings in this range generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. One of the statistics we considered after nursing hours is vaccinations. This nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccination to 99.672134 percent of its patients. Vaccination is a great way to minimize unnecessary deaths and hospitalizations for the aged 65 and up population. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home's third most favorable category is short-term care. We gave it a B- in this category. This is basically a middle of the road score in this area. In calculating these short-term care scores, we analyze the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The goal is to create a scale for comparing the rehabilitation services of nursing homes. It doesn't appear that this facility submitted information on registered nurse or physical therapist staffing. Lastly, we looked at the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 4.8 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most nursing homes, closer to half of their patients are able to return home so this figure is below average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

The final category we scored is nursing. In that category, we awarded this nursing home a decent grade of B-. This is this facility's worst category. We assessed the levels of nurses employed by the facility, as well as the quantity of hours the nurses were with patients, in calculating our score in this area. This particular nursing home provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This figure is significantly below the national average. Lastly, nursing grades also factor in quality-based measures, such as preventing major falls. Despite not having the highest total nursing hours, this nursing home actually performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is generally a reliable indicator that a nursing home has sufficient quality controls in place. Many falls can be avoided if a nursing home provides enough nurses aids to assist its patients.
