Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

To pair with its favorable overall grade, we gave this nursing home an A+ for our inspections rating. Inspection scores account for a host of factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One key criteria we rely on is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with better grades in this category usually have few severe deficiencies. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

We also would like to note the fact that this facility received a top-shelf score of A- in our short-term care area. Short-term care scores are important for patients seeking rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually requires additional skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes a wide scope of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final statistic we looked at in this category is the percentage of residents who ultimately returned home from the facility. We found that 4.6 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

We also wanted to emphasize the fact that this facility received an impressive grade of A- in our nursing category. In calculating a nursing home's nursing rating, we look at the quantity of hours nurses are seeing residents and the levels of training of those nurses. This nursing home provides 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed very well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

In the final category, this facility also was given an impressive long-term care score, with a grade of B+. This completed a very favorable report card. Nursing homes that receive this type of score in this category typically provide consistent around the clock care to ensure patients are kept in good health. After looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination records. This nursing home vaccinated 92.134834 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which happens to be a bit less than we anticipated but still a reasonably acceptable percentage. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
