Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

On top of being a quality nursing home overall, this place excelled in the area of inspections, where it earned a grade of A+. Not many facilities fared better in this category. Inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This facility received 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This tells you that the government inspectors did not consider any of these deficiencies to pose an imminent risk to patient health or safety. Keep in mind that deficiency-free inspections are rare in the industry.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This facility also was given an impressive long-term care score. Indeed, we gave it an above average score of B+ in this category. When facilities receive a score in this range in this category it generally means it's well-staffed and is a quality place to live on a permanent basis. In addition to assessing the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 95.38131 percent of its residents. Vaccines are critical to keeping patients healthy. Lastly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The third best category we awarded this nursing home in any area came in the area of short-term care, where we awarded it a grade of B-. Our short-term care grade is often employed to grade a facility's performance with rehabilitation To offer highly scored rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must offer better levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other licensed professionals. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not all facilities employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last datapoint we looked at in this area is the number of patients that ultimately returned home from the facility. We found that just 5.4 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home. This figure was below the national average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

Switching gears to the final category, we awarded this nursing home a grade of D in the area of nursing. This is the facility's worst category rating. Sadly, this category hurt the facility's overall grade to some degree. The nursing rating is based on numerous data points. The most heavily weighted one is the quantity of hours nurses spend with patients. This facility offered only 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing scores. This nursing home fared well when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
