Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

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 85.882355 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-minus

This facility's next best category was its nursing grade, where it received a grade of B-. While this didn't quite match its scores in some of the categories discussed above, this is still a decent score. 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 provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this nursing home surprisingly excelled in some of the quality measures we assessed. It scored well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

Our next category is short-term care, in which we awarded this nursing home a grade of B- in that area. Our short-term care grade is commonly employed to grade a facility's rehabilitation services. In order to offer quality rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to have higher levels of highly skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other licensed professionals. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all facilities employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last item we looked at in this area is the number of residents who ultimately returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 5.4 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
