Facility Inspections

Grade: A

In addition to performing well in its overall grade, this nursing home performed at an even higher level in the area of inspections. In fact, it received a nearly flawless inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our highest grades in that category with a score of A. Arguably the most significant factor we look at in computing our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places with higher scores in this area typically dodged the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. Fortunately, although this nursing home had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you that the inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

This facility really excelled in the area of long-term care, where it received a grade of A-. Very few nursing homes performed better in this area. Facilities that do well in this category tend to be well-staffed and offer extensive hands on care to patients. After assessing the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 99.02597 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Vaccines are critical to keeping residents healthy. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

The third area we analyzed is short-term care. This nursing home received a very positive short-term care score, with a B in this category. In the area of short-term care, we strive to qualify indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We assess a facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. However, based on the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final item we considered in this area is the percentage of residents that who were able to eventually return home from the nursing home. We found that 5.4 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

The last area we rated is this nursing home's worst area. However, even in its weakest link we still gave it an acceptable grade of C in nursing. Our nursing grade is based on many factors. The most heavily weighted variable is the quantity of hours nurses spent with residents. This particular facility provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This figure is far below average. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this nursing home actually fared better in some of the quality-based metrics we assessed. In fact, it performed well when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
