Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

To go along with its favorable overall grade, we gave this facility an A+ for our inspection category. Inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these items by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

We also wanted to point out the fact that this facility received a superb score of A- in our long-term care area. Facilities that excel in this category tend to provide patients with better supervision and stay on top of routine medical care. After assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Vaccines are vital to keeping patients healthy. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

Turning the page to our next area, this nursing home was awarded a strong short-term care score. In fact, we gave it a score of A- in this area. Short-term care scores are based on a nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled nursing services. This means a wide spectrum of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. We were not able to find information on registered nurse or physical therapy staffing for this nursing home. The final datapoint we considered in this category is the number of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We found that 6.6 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

The next category we graded is nursing, in which this nursing home was awarded a grade of B-. Even though this is its lowest category score, this is still not the end of the world. When computing a facility's nursing grade, we assess the quantity of hours nurses are with residents as well as the level of licensure of the nurses. This facility provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this nursing home actually excelled in some of the quality-based metrics we looked at. In fact, it scored well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
