Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

To go along with its strong overall grade, we gave this facility an A+ for our inspections rating. Inspection grades are tied to many items located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places that excel in this area have few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these places should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. It doesn't appear that we were able to find information about this nursing home's deficiencies. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

An additional quality feature for this facility is that it was given a favorable long-term care grade. Indeed, this wound up being its second best category score. In this category, we gave this nursing home a B+. For patients looking for a permanent place to live as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care grades are very important. On top of looking at the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 13.194443 percent of its patients. This is somewhat below what we anticipated but still a decent percentage. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Turning to the third area, this facility also received a score of B+ for its short-term care rating. This is a well above average score in this category. Short-term care grades are meaningful for individuals in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally mandates more highly-skilled nursing. This means a broad range of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final item we considered in this category is the number of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We discovered that 6.1 percent of this nursing home's residents were able to return home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

The last area we scored is this nursing home's poorest category. However, even in its weakest link we still awarded it a decent grade of C for nursing. When computing a facility's nursing score, we weigh the amount of time nurses spend with patients as well as the level of skill of those nurses. This particular facility provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This figure is far below average. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality measures. While this nursing home got docked a bit for nursing hours, it excelled in a few of these quality-based metrics. With less than five percent of its residents suffering from pressure ulcers, it performed remarkably well in this statistic. This is often an indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can often be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as by having a system of turning a patient more often.
