Facility Inspections

Grade: A

In addition to being a respectable nursing home overall, this facility also excelled in the category of inspections, where it earned a grade of A. Few nursing homes performed better in this area. These inspection scores take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these issues 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

Turning to an additional strength for this facility, we gave it a superb long-term care grade. In fact, we awarded this facility a score of A-. Nursing homes that excel in this category typically provide residents with closer supervision and stay on top of routine healthcare services. After considering the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 99.59432 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Vaccines are vital to keeping patients out of the hospital. Clearly, this nursing home 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 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

This nursing home's next best category was short-term care. We awarded it a grade of C in this area. This is essentially a middle of the pack grade in this category. Our short-term care ratings are arguably most critical for residents requiring a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically requires additional skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means not only nursing services, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. Unfortunately, we weren't able to find registered nurse or physical therapy staffing data for this place. The last item we considered in this category is the number of patients who were able to leave the facility and return home. We discovered that just 5.1 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is below average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

The final area we scored was nursing. We gave this nursing home a D for our nursing category, making this the nursing home's least impressive area. Our nursing rating is primarily tied to the facility's level of nurse staffing. This facility offered a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This is well below average. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing scores. This place fared well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.
