Facility Inspections

Grade: A

To pair with its favorable overall grade, we gave this nursing home an A for the area of inspections. Our inspection ratings are based on several items found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places that score well in this area have few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these places should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. This particular nursing home received 9 deficiencies on its inspection report. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This nursing home also was awarded an impressive short-term care score. In fact, we gave it an above average grade of B+ in this category. Our short-term care scores are based in part on the nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This includes a wide range of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, in addition to other types of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we looked at the number of residents that eventually returned home from this nursing home. We found that 5.4 percent of this nursing home's patients were able to return home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This facility is also above average in the category of long-term care, where it was given a score of B+. It outperformed most nursing homes in this area. When facilities receive this kind of score in long-term care it is a good sign for patient care and indicates that the nursing home is well-staffed with nurses and aids. On top of looking at the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 97.35099 percent of its patients, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia can be a life or death condition for nursing home patients so we strongly prefer when a facility does not roll the dice on this issue. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

The final area we graded was nursing. In that category, we gave this nursing home an acceptable grade of B-. This proved to be this nursing home's weakest category. In computing a facility's nursing score, we weigh the amount of time nurses are seeing patients and the skill levels of the nurses. This nursing home provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is a low total compared to most other nursing homes. Finally, despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours per resident, this facility actually performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is typically a good indicator that a facility has sufficient quality controls in place.
