Facility Inspections

Grade: A

In addition to being a respectable nursing home overall, this facility also excelled in the category of inspections, where it earned an A. Few facilities performed better in this category. Inspection grades take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This particular nursing home received 3 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: B-plus

This nursing home also received a positive short-term care grade. As a matter of fact, we gave it a grade of B+ in that category, which happens to be one of our better. Our short-term care grades are thought to be more critical for individuals requiring rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation usually utilizes more highly-skilled nursing services. This includes not merely nursing services, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. However, based on the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final measure we considered in this area is the number of residents that were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that 5.7 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

This nursing home also received a strong nursing grade. In fact, we awarded it a grade of B in that category, which is one of our better scores. Our nursing rating focuses on the facility's level of nurse staffing. We factor in both the levels of licensure of the nurses as well as the number of hours spent with residents. This particular nursing home provided 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 place performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a facility 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: F

This facility's least impressive category was long-term care, which is the last area we looked at. Unfortunately, we gave it an F for this area. In spite of several solid scores in other areas, this score is still of a concern so we would like to to make a note of it. Long-term care grades of this caliber generally are a bad sign for the quantity and quality of care provided by nurses and aids. One of the factors we considered after nurse's aid hours is vaccines. Frankly, we were a bit concerned this facility administered the pneumonia vaccine to only 85 percent of its residents. To our surprise, this nursing home was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home had fewer hospitalizations than many nursing homes. This is its best feature in this category.
