Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

One of the many reasons this turned out to be a quality nursing home is that it received an A+ inspection grade. This is simply as good as it gets in this critical category. Inspection ratings weigh several factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we look at is the number and severity of deficiencies. Places with better grades in this category usually have few of these severe deficiencies. This facility was assessed 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be severe. This tells you that the government inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. 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 top-shelf long-term care grade. It received one of our best grades in that area, with a grade of A. Nursing homes that receive this type of grade in long-term care typically provide consistent around the clock care to make sure residents are kept in good health. After considering the quantity of nursing care, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This facility vaccinated 98.93238 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is very impressive. Pneumonia is often a life threatening condition for nursing home residents so we like it when a nursing home does not roll the dice on this issue. Finally, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facility's next best category was its nursing grade, where it received a grade of B-. While this didn't quite match its scores in some of the categories discussed above, this is still a decent score. When computing our nursing scores, we weigh both staffing levels and the skill levels of the nurses. This facility provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This is a low total compared with most nursing homes. Lastly, while this facility got dinged a bit for nursing hours, it actually excelled in a few of our quality-based measures. With fewer than five percent of its patients suffering from pressure ulcers, it performed very well in this statistic.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The next area we graded is short-term care. In this category, we awarded this facility an acceptable grade of C. This turned out to be this nursing home's worst area. In crafting our short-term care grades, we assess the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. Our objective is to create a barometer for sizing up the rehabilitation services of different facilities. Unfortunately, it does not look like this nursing home submitted registered nurse or physical therapist staffing data. Finally, we looked at the percentage of residents that ultimately were able to return home from this nursing home. We found that 5.2 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was quite a bit below the national average.
