Facility Inspections

Grade: A

One of the reasons this turned out to be a strong nursing home is that it received an impressive inspection rating. Inspections is its best category grade. In this category, we gave it an A. Inspection scores weigh a host of factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we rely on is the number and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with higher grades in this area usually have few severe deficiencies. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like we have deficiency counts for this nursing home. Without information regarding deficiencies for this nursing home, it was difficult to fully evaluate the place in this category.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

This facility was given a strong long-term care score as well. We awarded it one of our better scores in that category with a grade of B. Facilities that do well in long-term care tend to provide patients with better supervision and stay on top of routine healthcare services. One of the criteria we considered after nursing hours was vaccines. This nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccination to 99.30796 percent of its patients. Vaccination is a reliable method to minimize unnecessary deaths for the nursing home population. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The next area we graded was short-term care. In that area, we gave this nursing home a decent grade of B-. In our short-term care rating, we endeavor to create a fair barometer for rehabilitation services. In this process, we look at the nursing home's levels of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last metric we assessed in this category is the percentage of residents that eventually returned home from the facility. We found that just 5.3 percent of this facility's patients returned home. This figure was below the national average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

The last category we looked at is nursing. In that category, we gave this nursing home a B-. Nursing ratings are based largely on quality and quantity of nursing care. This nursing home averages just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility excelled in some of the quality measures we looked at. It performed well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
