Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

In addition to being a first rate nursing home overall, this facility excelled in the area of inspections, where it received an A+. Few nursing homes performed this well in this area. Inspection ratings take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This facility was assessed 6 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be severe. This means that the government inspectors did not deem any of these deficiencies to be an imminent risk to patient health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies aren't necessarily something to panic about.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

Among this nursing home's other accomplishments is its first-rate short-term care score. We awarded them one of our most favorable scores in that area, with a grade of A-. In our short-term care category, we strive to create a fair measure for rehabilitation. In doing so, we assess a nursing home's level of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. However, according to the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final measure we assessed in this category is the number of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that 6.7 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

Turning to another strength for this facility, we awarded them one of our more favorable grades in our long-term care category as well, with a B. Nursing homes that receive this type of score in long-term care tend to provide consistent around the clock care to make sure patients are well cared for. In addition to considering the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 98.91008 percent of its patients, which is very impressive. Pneumonia sadly can be a life threatening ailment for nursing home residents so we like it when a facility does not roll the dice on this issue. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

The last area we scored was nursing. This nursing home received a better than average nursing score in our assessment, with a grade of B-. Even though this was not quite as impressive as a few of its other scores, this is still a respectable score for that category. The nursing rating includes a handful of data points, however, the primary one is the level of nurse hours per patient per week. This nursing home provides 0.4 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 facility actually fared better in some of the quality measures we assessed. In fact, it scored well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
