Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

Part of the reason this facility performed well overall is that it excelled in the category of inspections, with a B+ in that area. It outperformed most facilities in this category. Perhaps the most important factor we look at in calculating our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. Nursing homes with higher grades in this category typically dodged the more severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. This particular nursing home received 4 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a good inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

This nursing home also received a strong nursing score. In fact, we awarded it an above average grade of B+ in this area. Nursing scores are primarily tied to the facility's level of nurse staffing. This facility provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality-based metrics and this nursing home 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 nation in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can frequently be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as having a protocol of turning residents more often.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

This facility also was given a favorable short-term care grade. Indeed, we gave it an above average score of B in this area. Short-term care ratings are vital for people looking for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically mandates higher levels of skilled nursing services. This includes a vast range of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of residents that returned home from this nursing home. We found that 5.1 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

Switching gears to the last area, this facility received a decent long-term care grade of B-. In a long-term care environment, the facility's primary goal is to keep patients healthy and safe. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. Once we looked at the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination records. We were disappointed to learn that this facility vaccinated just 60.416664 percent of its residents against pneumonia. On a more positive note, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
