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. These inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these issues by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like we were able to find deficiency data for this nursing home. Without having access to all of the deficiency related data for this nursing home, it was a challenge to fully assess the place in this area.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

This facility is also strong in the area of nursing, where it received a grade of B+. It outperformed most nursing homes in this category. In calculating our nursing ratings, we assess both nursing hours and the training levels of those nurses. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed very well when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

This nursing home also was given an impressive short-term care grade. In fact, we awarded it an above average score of B in this category. In the category of short-term care, we strive to qualify measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We assess a facility's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final datapoint we considered in this category is the percentage of residents that eventually returned home from the nursing home. We found that 4.6 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The next category we scored was long-term care. In that area, we gave this facility a solid grade of B-. This actually turned out to be this facility's worst area. Our long-term care grade is typically used to assess a facility's performance as a traditional convalescent home, as opposed to focusing on the skilled nursing services offered by a skilled nursing facility. Once we looked at the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination record. We were optimistic to find that this nursing home vaccinated 97.98995 percent of its patients for pneumonia. This facility keeps its patients out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
