Facility Inspections

Grade: A

In addition to being a respectable nursing home overall, this facility really excelled in the category of inspections, where it earned an A. Few nursing homes performed better in this category. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating our inspection ratings. One of those factors is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these end up being quite minor. Fortunately, although this nursing home had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G through L. This means that the inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. The fact that the deficiencies were relatively minor made us feel better about this inspection report.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

This facility also received a favorable score in our long-term care category. We gave this facility a better than average grade of B in that area. Nursing homes that receive this type of grade in this category tend to provide consistent around the clock care to make sure residents are well cared for. On top of looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its residents, which is significantly higher than the majority of nursing homes. Finally, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home was awarded its third most favorable category score in the area of short-term care. We awarded this facility a grade of B- in this category, which is a reasonably acceptable grade. In computing our short-term care ratings, we look at the facility's levels of skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists respiratory therapists and other licensed professionals. This grade is generally a reliable measure of the facility's rehabilitation. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. 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. Lastly, we considered the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most facilities, closer to half of their residents are able to return home so this figure is below average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

Turning to the last category, this nursing home received a B- for nursing, which we consider to be a decent rating. Nursing ratings are tied to quality and quantity of nursing care. This particular facility provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This figure is significantly below the national average. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this nursing home surprisingly fared better in some of the quality-based metrics we assessed. In fact, it performed well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these areas to be reliable indicators 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.
