Facility Inspections

Grade: A

In addition to being a strong facility overall, this place excelled in our inspections category, where it earned an A. Not many nursing homes performed better in that area. Our inspection scores weigh a host of factors found on a facility's inspection report. One key criteria we rely on is the number and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with better grades in this area typically have very few of these severe deficiencies. While this nursing home had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones labeled as 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: B-plus

An additional quality feature for this facility is that it was awarded an impressive long-term care grade. In fact, this proved to be its second best category score. In this area, we gave this facility a grade of B+. In a long-term care environment, the facility's primary objective is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. In addition to considering the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 88.70968 percent of its residents. This is slightly lower than we were hoping for but still a respectable figure. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

Adding to its profile, this facility also earned a grade of B+ for its nursing rating. This is a well above average score in this category. Our nursing rating analyzes the facility's nurse staffing levels. We weigh both the levels of licensure of the nurses and the number of hours spent with patients. This nursing home averages 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed very well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

The final category we graded was short-term care, where we gave it a favorable grade of B. This nursing home truly did not have any weak spots. In the category of short-term care, we seek to evaluate measures of a facility's rehabilitation services. We analyze a nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last datapoint we considered in this category is the number of patients who were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that 5.3 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.
