Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

One of the many reasons this ended up being a quality nursing home is that it earned an A+ inspection grade. This is simply as good as it gets in this very important category. Inspection ratings account for a host of factors included in a nursing home's inspection report. One key criteria we rely on is the number and severity of deficiencies. Places with higher grades in this area generally have few severe deficiencies. This place was hit with 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This tells you that the inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies to be an immediate risk to patient 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

We also want to point out the fact that this facility was given an impressive grade of A- in our short-term care area. With our short-term care category, we endeavor to craft a sound barometer for rehabilitation services. In this process, we look at a facility's offerings of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. Not all facilities employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we considered the number of residents that who were able to eventually return home from this facility. We found that 5.6 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Turning to our third category, this facility also received a score of B+ for its long-term care rating. This is an above average score in this area. Long-term care grades of this caliber generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. In addition to assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 70.54795 percent of its residents. This is a bit below what we expected. While its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we hoped for, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

The final category we scored is nursing. We awarded this nursing home one of our better scores in this area, with a grade of B. Although this wasn't as dominant as several of its other grades, it is nevertheless a fine score. The nursing rating assesses a handful of data points, most of which are associated with nursing hours. This nursing home averages 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed very well in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
