Facility Inspections

Grade: A

To pair with its favorable overall grade, we awarded this place a grade of A for the area of inspections. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing our inspection scores. One of those factors is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies are relatively minor. 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. Even some of the best nursing homes receive an occasional ding on their inspection report.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Another one of this facility's above average category scores came in the category of short-term care. We awarded them one of our better grades in that area, with a grade of B+. In our short-term care rating, we try to craft a valuable gauge for rehabilitation. In this process, we assess a nursing home's offerings of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. One of this nursing home's strengths is registered nurse hours. We found that it offers more care from registered nurses to its residents than most facilities. Lastly, we looked at the number of patients that returned home from this nursing home. It fared as well as just about any nursing home in this area with 60.8 percent of its residents returning home. Most nursing homes are below 50 percent in this area.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

In addition, this facility also received favorable nursing grades this year. In fact, we awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with a grade of B. Our nursing grade consists of many factors, but the most important one is the quantity of nurse hours spent with patients. This particular nursing home provided 3.8 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 facility has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can generally be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Switching gears to the last area, we gave this nursing home a D in our long-term care category. This is the facility's weakest category rating. Unfortunately, this category pulled down the nursing home's overall profile a bit. When facilities receive a score in this range in this category it typically means the facility did not perform well in our measures relating to patient care. On top of considering the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. As it turns out, this facility provided the vaccine to only 84.09703 percent of its patients, which is somewhat alarming. To our surprise, this facility was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.54 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home had less hospitalizations than many nursing homes. This was its best score in this category.
