Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

On top of receiving a strong overall score, this facility also earned top notch health inspections in recent years. We awarded it one of our better grades in that category, with an A+. Arguably the most important factor we look at in determining our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a facility's inspection reports. Places with higher scores in this area most likely avoided the most severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. While this place had a few minor dings on its inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means the government inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A couple relatively minor dings aren't the end of the world.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

This facility received a very good nursing grade this year as well. It received one of our better scores in that category with a grade of B. When computing a facility's nursing score, we assess the quantity of hours nurses are caring for patients as well as the level of licensure of the nurses. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This facility 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 frequently be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

In addition, this nursing home also was given favorable long-term care scores this year. In fact, we gave them one of our more favorable scores in that area, with a score of B. Facilities that excel in long-term care tend to be well-staffed and offer extensive hands on care to residents. Once we looked at the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination records. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is far higher than the vast majority of nursing homes. Lastly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.03 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

Moving on to the final area, this nursing home was awarded a B- for short-term care, which we consider to be a decent grade. Our short-term care grade is typically used to grade a facility's rehabilitation services. To offer high-end rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to offer higher levels of highly skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other highly skilled individuals. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not all facilities employs these types of nurses. However, according to the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last statistic we looked at in this category is the number of patients that ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that just 4.5 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home. This figure was below average.
