Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

On top of performing well overall, this facility also received a nearly flawless inspection report. Therefore, it received one of our best grades in that category with a grade of A+. Our inspection ratings weigh a host of factors found on a facility's inspection report. One key criteria we consider is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Places with better grades in this category generally have very few severe deficiencies. It does not look like we were able to find deficiency counts 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 facility also was given an impressive long-term care score. In fact, we gave it an above average grade of B+ in this area. When facilities receive a grade in this range in this category it generally means it has plenty of staff and is a quality place to reside on a permanent basis. Once we assessed the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is much higher than most nursing homes. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facility's next best category was its nursing grade, where it received a grade of B-. While this didn't quite match its scores in some of the categories discussed above, this is still a decent score. There are a host of criteria included in this grade. Most of the factors reflect staffing levels. This nursing home provides 2.8 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Finally, despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours, this place performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is usually a reliable indicator that a nursing home has sufficient quality controls in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The next category we graded is this nursing home's worst category. Nevertheless, even in its worst category we still awarded it an acceptable grade of C for our short-term care category. In computing our short-term care scores, we size up the nursing home's levels of skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other types of therapists. This area is generally a reliable measure of a nursing home's rehabilitation. Fortunately, this nursing home offers both physical therapists and registered nurses. Not all facilities offer both. Finally, we looked at the number of patients that ultimately were able to return home from this facility and found that this nursing home performed better here. In fact, this nursing home performed better than most facilities in the nation with 50.5 percent of its residents returning home.
