Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

In addition to being a respectable facility overall, this facility really excelled in the category of inspections, where it earned an A-. Few nursing homes performed better in this category. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining our inspection grades. One key factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is usually more important than the number of deficiencies, as some of these end up being relatively insignificant. Fortunately, although this nursing home had a few minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means that the inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Keep in mind that deficiency-free inspection reports are uncommon in the industry.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

This facility also was given a strong short-term care score. In fact, we gave it a B in that area, which happens to be one of our better. In the area of short-term care, we endeavor to qualify indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We assess a nursing home's skilled nursing services, including the ones performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. It doesn't look like this nursing home provided data regarding its registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. Lastly, we looked at the number of patients who returned home from this facility. We found that 5.5 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

Next, we looked at the nursing category where we awarded this nursing home a grade of B-, which is a decent grade. Nursing scores are heavily correlated with quantity of nursing care available. This place provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This is a lower figure than we were hoping for. Lastly, despite not having the highest total nursing hours per resident, this place performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is generally an indicator that a place has sufficient quality controls in place.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The final category we rated was long-term care. In this category, we awarded this facility a grade of B-. In computing our long-term care ratings, we analyze the personal care received by the facility's patients. In addition to looking at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 80 percent of its residents. This is pretty significantly less than the national average. Nevertheless, this nursing home was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
