Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

This facility received a solid overall grade as described above, but we really wanted to emphasize its excellent inspection reports in recent years. We awarded them an A- in this category. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining these inspection ratings. One critical factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be quite minor. This nursing home received 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This tells you that the government inspectors did not consider any of these deficiencies an imminent 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: B-plus

Another one of this facility's more favorable category scores was in the area of long-term care. In that category, we gave this facility a grade of B+. When nursing homes receive this kind of score in long-term care it is usually a good sign for patient care and indicates that the facility is well-staffed with nurses and aids. After looking at the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we then looked at the facility's vaccination records. This nursing home vaccinated 95.79832 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is better than the vast majority of nursing homes. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

Another reason we rated this facility so highly is that it received an A+ nursing grade. This is as good as it gets in this area. We weighed the skill-level of nurses employed by the nursing home, in addition to the quantity of time the nurses were with residents, in determining our grade in this category. This facility provided 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 facility performed very well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The last area we rated is short-term care, ended up being this nursing home's least impressive category. We awarded this nursing home a D in this category. This is one of just a few dings of an otherwise impressive report card. In calculating our short-term care scores, we assess a facility's levels of skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other licensed professionals. This category is often a fair measure of the nursing home's rehabilitation. It looks like this nursing home was below average in the two key staffing areas we focus on. In fact, it provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than most other facilities. Lastly, we considered the number of patients that were able to return home from this nursing home. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 4.4 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.
