Facility Inspections

Grade: A

One of the reasons this place is a quality facility is that it earned an impressive inspection rating. Inspections is its best category. In that category, we gave it an A. Our inspection ratings account for a host of factors found on a facility's inspection reports. One key criteria we rely on is the number and severity of deficiencies. Places with higher scores in this area usually have very few of these severe deficiencies. This particular nursing home received 5 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

Building on its impressive resume, this facility also excelled in nursing. In fact, we awarded it an B+ for that category. Our nursing score is primarily associated with the facility's level of nurse staffing. This facility provided 0.2 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality-based metrics and this place excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any nursing home the nation in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can generally be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as employing a protocol of turning patients even once per day.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Turning to an additional strength for this facility, we awarded them one of our more favorable scores in our short-term care category as well, with a grade of B+. In our short-term care grade, we attempt to create a valuable barometer for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we analyze the facility's levels of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final item we looked at in this area is the number of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We discovered that 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

The next category we graded is long-term care, in which this facility received a grade of B. This facility didn't turn out to have any weak categories. For long-term care residents, the facility's primary objective is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. In addition to assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 93.14285 percent of its residents, which is somewhat less than we expected. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
