Facility Inspections

Grade: A

In addition to earning a strong overall score, this nursing home also received excellent inspections in recent years. We gave it one of our highest grades in that area, with an A. Our inspection ratings weigh a host of factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the number and severity of deficiencies. Places with better scores in this area generally have few severe deficiencies. 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.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A

This nursing home also received a very impressive nursing grade. In fact, this turned out to be its second best category grade. In that area, we awarded this facility a grade of A. Nursing ratings are primarily based on the facility's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.4 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 place has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can often be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This facility is also strong in the category of short-term care, where it was given a score of B+. It outperformed most facilities in this category. In the area of short-term care, we attempt to qualify measures of a facility's rehabilitation. We assess a nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we considered the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

The last area we assessed was this facility's worst area. Nevertheless, even its lowest point would likely be a strength for most nursing homes. We awarded it a favorable grade of B for long-term care. If you are seeking services other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each nursing home's long-term care grades. Once we finished looking at the volume of nursing care, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 92.30769 percent of its residents for pneumonia. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
