Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

This facility received a quality overall grade as described above, but we especially want to point out its excellent inspections in recent years. We gave them an A- in this area. These inspection grades take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these factors by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This nursing home was assessed 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This means that the government inspectors didn't consider any of these deficiencies to be an immediate risk to resident safety or health. Remember that deficiency-free inspection reports are uncommon in this industry.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

Among the reasons we graded this facility so highly is that it was awarded a dominant short-term care score. In fact, short-term care is its second highest category grade. In that area, we gave this facility a score of A-. Our short-term care ratings are presumably most critical for folks needing a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically requires higher levels of skilled nursing. This means not merely nursing, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we considered the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 6.2 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

This facility received a very good nursing grade this year as well. It received one of our better scores in that category with a grade of B. Our nursing grade is based on the facility's nurse staffing levels. We factor in both the levels of training of the nurses and the number of hours spent with residents. This nursing home averages 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed very well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

The final area we assessed was long-term care. In this area, we awarded this nursing home a favorable grade of B. For prospective residents seeking a permanent place to live as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care is an important category. Once we looked at the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination records. This nursing home vaccinated 91.53439 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which happens to be a bit below what we expected but still a decent figure. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
