Facility Inspections

Grade: A

In addition to being a respectable facility overall, this facility really excelled in the area of inspections, where it received a grade of A. Few facilities performed better in this area. Our inspection ratings are tied to pieces of information found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities that score well in this area have very few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these nursing homes generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. Fortunately, although this nursing home had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means that CMS did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A few relatively minor dings aren't something to panic about.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

One of the other reasons we graded this nursing home so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing grade. In that area, we gave this facility an B. In calculating a nursing home's nursing grade, we weigh the quantity of hours nurses are caring for residents as well as the levels of training of those nurses. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality-based metrics and this place excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any place the state in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can typically be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as by having a system of moving a patient more often.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

In addition, we also wanted to note that this nursing home was given strong long-term care marks in this assessment. We gave them one of our more impressive grades in that area, with a B. Long-term care ratings of this caliber generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. Once we looked at the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 97.254906 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Vaccines are vital to keeping residents healthy. Lastly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The last area we analyzed is short-term care, was this nursing home's least impressive area. We gave this nursing home a D in that area. This really is one of the few dings of a quality profile. In the category of short-term care, we attempt to qualify indicators of a facility's rehabilitation. We look at the facility's skilled nursing services, including the ones performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. Unfortunately, we found that this nursing home provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. Lastly, we looked at the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. This definitely was not a strength for this facility. We found that just 4.2 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most facilities, about half of their residents are able to return home so this is well below average.
