Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

In addition to faring well overall, this nursing home also received nearly flawless government inspections. Therefore, it earned one of our best grades in that category with an A+. Our inspection grades are based on pieces of information located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes that excel in this area have few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these places generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. This particular nursing home received 2 deficiencies on its inspection report. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

Among this nursing home's other achievements is its top-shelf long-term care score. It received one of our best scores in that area, with a score of A. When nursing homes receive this type of score in this category it is usually a good sign for patient care and indicates that the facility is well-staffed with nurses and aids. In addition to looking at the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 98.82353 percent of its patients, which is much higher than the vast majority of nursing homes. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

Another strong feature for this facility is that it received an impressive nursing grade. In that area, we awarded this facility a grade of B. Our nursing rating assesses the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. We consider both the levels of licensure of those nurses as well as the quantity of hours spent with residents. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality-based metrics and this place excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any facility the state in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can frequently be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as employing a protocol of turning a patient more often.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The last category we analyzed is short-term care, which turned out to be this nursing home's worst category. We awarded this nursing home a grade of D in this category. However, you should not assess this nursing home solely on a single bad area, as it earned some impressive grades in other categories. In our short-term care category, we attempt to forge a sound barometer for rehabilitation. In this process, we analyze the facility's level of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. In this facility's case, it looks like it offered less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than a typical facility. Finally, we assessed the number of patients that returned home from this facility. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 4.5 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.
