Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

On top of being a strong nursing home overall, it also earned A+ inspections in recent years. Its inspections are nearly flawless. Inspection ratings take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can find more information about each of these factors by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This facility was hit with 9 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This means that the inspectors didn't consider any of these deficiencies to create an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

This nursing home was given high marks in the area of long-term care as well. As a result, we awarded it one of our most favorable scores in that area with a score of A. For prospective residents looking for a permanent residence as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care grades are an important measure. After considering the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination records. This facility vaccinated 71.91011 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which happens to be slightly less than we were hoping for but still a decent figure. Clearly, this nursing home 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 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

Another one of this facility's impressive category grades came in the area of nursing care. We awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with a grade of B. Our nursing score consists of a handful of subcategories, but the most important consideration is the level of nurse hours spent with patients. This nursing home provides 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality-based metrics and this place excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any facility the state in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can generally be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as by having a policy of turning a resident more often.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The next area we looked at was short-term care, where this facility was awarded a grade of C. This proved to be this facility's least impressive category. This is nevertheless not a terrible score. Our short-term care grades are presumably more meaningful for people in need of rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation usually requires more highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means not only nursing services, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other types of therapy. It does not appear that this facility provided registered nurse or physical therapist staffing data. The last datapoint we assessed in this category is the number of residents who were able to leave the facility and return home. We discovered that just 4.5 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is below average.
