Facility Inspections

Grade: A

To pair with its favorable overall score, we gave this facility an A for the area of inspections. Arguably the most important factor we look at in computing our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a facility's inspection reports. Nursing homes with higher grades in this category most likely dodged the more severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. This place was hit with 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be severe. This indicates that the inspectors didn't deem any of these deficiencies to create an imminent threat to resident health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

Among the reasons we graded this facility so highly is that it was given a dominant short-term care grade. In fact, short-term care ended up being its second most favorable category score. In that area, we awarded this nursing home a score of A-. In the category of short-term care, we strive to assess indicators of a facility's rehabilitation. We look at the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. Unfortunately, it does not appear that this nursing home submitted information on registered nurse or physical therapist staffing. The final statistic we assessed in this area is the number of patients who were able to leave the facility and return home. We discovered that 6.4 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

This nursing home was awarded impressive scores in the category of long-term care also. In fact, we gave it one of our most elite scores in that area with a score of A-. When nursing homes receive a grade in this range in long-term care it typically means it's well-staffed and is an overall good place to live on a permanent basis. After considering the volume of care provided by nurses, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 98.113205 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia can be a life or death health condition for nursing home patients so we prefer when a nursing home doesn't leave this to chance. Lastly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

The next area we looked at was nursing, in which this nursing home was given a C. This actually proved to be this nursing home's weakest category. This is still a middle of the pack score. Our nursing rating analyzes quite a few subcategories, most of which are based on quantities of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality measures. While this place got dinged a bit for its nursing hours per resident, it excelled in a few of these quality metrics. With fewer than five percent of its residents experiencing pressure ulcers, it did remarkably well in this statistic. This can be an indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can often be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as employing a system of turning a resident more often.
