Facility Inspections

Grade: A

In addition to being a respectable nursing home overall, this place really excelled in the area of inspections, where it earned an A. Few facilities performed better in this area. Inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these issues by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This place was assessed 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This indicates that the inspectors did not consider any of these deficiencies to pose an imminent risk to patient health or safety. A few minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

One of the other reasons we graded this facility so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing rating. This proved to be its second best category grade. In that area, we gave this facility an B+. We weighed the qualifications of nurses employed by the facility, in addition to the quantity of time the nurses spent with residents, in determining our rating in this category. This nursing home provides 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This nursing home performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a place has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can frequently be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facility was given its next highest category score in the category of short-term care. We awarded this nursing home a B- in this category, which is a decent score. In the area of short-term care, we attempt to qualify measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We look at a facility's skilled nursing services, including the ones performed by registered nurses and various therapists. It does not look like this nursing home submitted registered nurse or physical therapist staffing data. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 4.8 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most nursing homes, closer to half of their residents are able to return home so this figure is below average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The final area we analyzed is long-term care, ended up being this facility's weakest area. We gave this nursing home a D in that category. This was one of the couple of dings of an otherwise strong profile. Long-term care grades of this caliber generally are a bad sign for the quantity and quality of care provided by nurses and aids. Once we finished looking at the quantity of nursing care, we next considered the facility's vaccination records. Frankly, we were a bit bothered by the fact that this nursing home vaccinated only 87.246376 percent of its residents for pneumonia. To our surprise, this place was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility has fewer hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. This was its best feature in this category.
