Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

On top of being a quality facility overall, this nursing home really excelled in the area of inspections, where it received an A+. Not many facilities performed better in that category. Inspection ratings are based on several datapoints located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes that receive favorable grades in this area have very few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these places generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. This particular nursing home received 7 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a good inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

Among its many impressive grades, this facility earned an excellent nursing score. In fact, we gave it an B+ in that category. Our nursing score is mostly based on the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This facility provided 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality measures and this nursing home excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any nursing home the nation in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can many times be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as employing a policy of moving a patient even once per day.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

We also awarded this facility a decent score in the category of long-term care, with a B-. In the area of long-term care, we focus on the quantity of services provided by a facility, as opposed to more sophisticated services. One of the datapoints we considered in addition to nurse's aid hours was vaccines. Thankfully, this nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccine to 96.077286 percent of its residents. This place also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The last category we rated is short-term care, which turned out to be this facility's worst category. We awarded this facility a D in this category. Of course, this grade pulled down the nursing home's overall profile to some degree. In calculating our short-term care grades, we look at the nursing home's levels of skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other licensed professionals. This rating is more often than not a meaningful assessment of a facility's rehabilitation services. Unfortunately, we learned that this facility provides fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than most facilities. Lastly, we considered the percentage of residents that returned home from this nursing home. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 2.7 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was well off the national average.
