Facility Inspections

Grade: B

This facility earned an inspection grade which is better than its overall grade. Inspection grades are associated with the nursing home's recent health inspections. We awarded this nursing home a very solid grade of B in this area. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining our inspection grades. One of those factors is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some of these end up being relatively minor. While this nursing home had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were serious based on CMS' scale. A few minor deficiencies should not lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

We also awarded this facility a favorable grade in nursing. This facility earned a grade of B in this category, which is one of our better grades. Our nursing score is primarily associated with the facility's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home averages 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality-based metrics and this facility excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any place the nation in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can often be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as by employing a protocol of moving a patient even once per day.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

We also gave this nursing home a respectable grade in the category of long-term care, where it received a C. In the area of long-term care, we assess the amount of care offered by a nursing home, rather than more sophisticated services. Once we concluded our assessment of the quantity of nursing care, we next considered the facility's vaccination data. We were optimistic to find that this facility vaccinated 97.971016 percent of its patients against pneumonia. This nursing home was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

Moving on to our final category, this nursing home was given a C in short-term care, which we consider to be a decent grade. Our short-term care grades are thought to be most meaningful for patients requiring a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically mandates higher levels of skilled nursing. This means not just nursing services, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Unfortunately, we found that this nursing home provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other facilities. The tricky part is determining what bearing this had on the quality of care. Finally, we looked at the percentage of patients that returned home from this nursing home. We found that 4.3 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was quite a bit below average.
