Facility Inspections

Grade: A

One of the reasons this turned out to be a strong nursing home is that it earned a very impressive inspection score. Inspections turned out to be its best category grade. In that area, we awarded it an A. Our inspection scores weigh several factors included in a nursing home's inspection reports. One key criteria we rely on is the number and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with better grades in this category typically have few of these severe deficiencies. This particular nursing home received 4 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.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

This nursing home truly excelled in the category of short-term care, where we awarded it a score of A-. Not many nursing homes performed better in this category. Short-term care scores are crucial for prospective residents needing rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually requires more skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means a wide range of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Unfortunately, we were not able to locate registered nurse or physical therapy staffing data for this facility. Lastly, we assessed the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 6.6 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

This nursing home also received a strong nursing score. In fact, we awarded it an above average grade of B in this area. We weighed the levels of nurses at the facility, in addition to the number of hours the nurses spent with patients, in determining our score in this area. This particular nursing home provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This nursing home performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a nursing home has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can often be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

Switching gears to our final category, this facility received a high-end long-term care score. This nursing home didn't prove to have any noticeable weaknesses. When nursing homes receive a score in this range in this category it typically means it has plenty of staff and is a quality place to live on a permanent basis. On top of assessing the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 95.73171 percent of its residents. Vaccines are vital to keeping residents out of the hospital. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
