Facility Inspections

Grade: A

One of the reasons this ended up being a quality nursing home is that it received an impressive inspection rating. In fact, inspections turned out to be its best category grade. In that category, we awarded it a grade of A. Inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Unfortunately, we weren't able to track down deficiency data 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

Among this facility's other strengths is its high-end long-term care score. We awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with a grade of A. When nursing homes receive a score in this range in this category it typically means it's well-staffed and is an overall good place to reside on a permanent basis. One of the statistics we considered after nursing hours is vaccinations. This facility administered the pneumonia vaccine to 94.72222 percent of its residents. This is a great way to avoid unnecessary hospitalizations for the nursing home population. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

This nursing home also received a strong nursing score. In fact, we awarded it an above average grade of B in this area. We looked at the skill-level of nurses at the nursing home, as well as the number of hours the nurses were with patients, in computing our rating in this area. This particular nursing home provided 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed very well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The next area we rated is short-term care. This facility was awarded a strong short-term care score this year, with a grade of B-. Although this was not nearly as dominant as several of its other grades, this is nevertheless an acceptable score in this area. Our short-term care scores are based on a facility's quantity of skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This means a broad scope of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 5 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.
