Facility Inspections

Grade: A

In addition to receiving a great overall grade, this place also received top notch health inspections in recent years. We awarded it one of our best scores in that area, with a grade of A. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating our inspection scores. One critical factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more important than the number of deficiencies, as some are quite minor. This facility was hit with 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This indicates that the government inspectors did not deem any of these deficiencies to be an immediate risk to resident health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

Among this facility's other accomplishments is its high-end long-term care grade. We awarded them one of our better scores in that category, with a score of A-. Long-term care ratings in this range generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. After assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination records. This facility vaccinated 50.184505 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is somewhat lower than we anticipated but still a reasonably acceptable figure. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

Turning the page to our third area, this nursing home received a strong short-term care score. In that area, we awarded this facility a A-. In crafting these short-term care scores, we analyze the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The goal is to devise a barometer for sizing up the rehabilitation services of various nursing homes. Unfortunately, we weren't able to track down registered nurse or physical therapy staffing data for this facility. The last statistic we considered in this area is the percentage of patients who eventually returned home from the nursing home. We found that 6.1 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

Turning to our last area, this facility was given an acceptable nursing rating. While this wasn't as elite as many of its other scores, this is still not a poor grade. Our nursing rating is largely tied to a facility's nurse staffing. This facility provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This figure is significantly below average. Finally, although this nursing home got dinged a bit for its nursing hours, it excelled in a few of our quality metrics. With fewer than five percent of its patients experiencing pressure ulcers, it performed remarkably well in this metric.
