Facility Inspections

Grade: A

In addition to earning a great overall rating, this nursing home performed even better in our inspections category which is associated with the facility's recent government inspections. We awarded it an A for this category, which is one of our highest grades. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating our inspection grades. One of those factors is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies are quite insignificant. Unfortunately, we weren't able to track down information on deficiency's for this nursing home. 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 area of long-term care, where it was awarded a score of B+. It performed better than most nursing homes in this category. When facilities receive a score in this range in this category it typically means it's well-staffed and is an overall good place to live on a permanent basis. One of the statistics we considered in addition to nursing hours is vaccines. This nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccination to 99.557526 percent of its patients. Vaccination is a reliable method to minimize unnecessary deaths and hospitalizations for the aged 65 and up population. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

Another one of this facility's impressive category grades came in the area of nursing care. We awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with a grade of B. Our nursing rating analyzes the facility's level of nurse staffing. We factor in both the levels of training of the nurses as well as the quantity of hours spent with residents. This facility provided 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This facility performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a nursing home has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can frequently be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The final area we assessed is short-term care. For that category, we awarded this nursing home a grade of C. In the area of short-term care, we seek to evaluate measures of a facility's rehabilitation services. We analyze a facility's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all facilities employs these types of nurses. However, according to the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final measure we assessed in this area is the percentage of residents that returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 4.8 percent of this facility's patients returned home. Unfortunately, this was below the national average.
