Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

To pair with its favorable overall score, we gave this facility an A+ for inspections. Inspection scores are tied to many pieces of information found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places that receive favorable grades in this area have very few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these facilities should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. This place was assessed 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered severe. This tells you that the inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies to create 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

Among the reasons we rated this nursing home so well is that it was given a very impressive short-term care grade. In fact, short-term care is its second most impressive category score. In that area, we gave this nursing home a score of A-. Our short-term care scores are based in part on a facility's quantity of skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This includes a broad spectrum of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, in addition to other forms of therapy. We weren't able to track down information on registered nurse or physical therapy staffing for this nursing home. The final statistic we assessed in this area is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We found that 6.7 percent of this nursing home's patients were able to return home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Turning to another strength for this nursing home, we awarded them one of our stronger scores in our long-term care category as well, with a grade of B+. Long-term care ratings in this range generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. Once we assessed the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination records. This facility vaccinated 91.19171 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is somewhat less than we were hoping for but still a reasonably acceptable percentage. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

The final category we rated was nursing. In that category, we awarded this nursing home an acceptable grade of B-. This proved to be this nursing home's weakest category. Our nursing rating consists of quite a few data points, but the paramount one is the number of nurse hours per patient per week. This nursing home provides only 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This is a somewhat uninspiring figure as it is well below the national average. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures. Although this nursing home got dinged a bit for nursing hours, it actually excelled in a few of these quality measures. With fewer than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it did very well in this subcategory. This is often an indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can often be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as having a protocol of turning a patient at least once a day.
