Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this facility an A+ for our inspections rating. Our inspection grades are tied to many pieces of information located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities that receive favorable grades in this area have very few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these places generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. This place was hit with 6 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This indicates that the government inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies to create an immediate threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This nursing home is also above average in the category of long-term care, where it received a score of B+. It outpaced most nursing homes in this area. 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. After considering the amount of care provided by nurses, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 63.896847 percent of its patients against pneumonia. While its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we hoped for, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

Turning to the category of nursing care, this facility didn't perform quite as well in this area as some of the categories discussed above. Nevertheless, a grade of B- in this category is by no means a bad score. There are many datapoints included in this grade. Many of these criteria relate to staffing levels. This nursing home provides only 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a somewhat uninspiring figure as it is well below the national average. Finally, while this place got dinged a bit for its nursing hours per resident, it excelled in some of our quality metrics. With fewer than five percent of its patients suffering from pressure ulcers, it did well in this subcategory.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

This facility's weakest category is short-term care, which is the final area we scored. For this category, we awarded this facility a grade of just D. In our short-term care category, we seek to craft a sound gauge for rehabilitation. In this process, we look at a facility's offerings of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. Unfortunately, we learned that this nursing home provides fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most nursing homes. Finally, we assessed the number of patients who who were able to eventually return home from this nursing home. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 4.2 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was quite a bit off the national average.
