Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

This facility received a quality overall score as described above, but we especially want to emphasize its excellent health inspections in recent years. We awarded it an A- in this area. Inspection ratings weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these factors 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. Even some of the best nursing homes receive an occasional ding on their inspection report.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

This nursing home truly excelled in the category of short-term care, where we gave it a grade of A-. Not many nursing homes performed more favorably in this category. In computing our short-term care ratings, we look at a nursing home's levels of highly skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other licensed professionals. This area is generally a useful assessment of the facility's ability to rehabilitate patients. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we considered the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 5.8 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home's next best category was nursing. We awarded it a grade of B- in this category. While this wasn't quite as good as some of its other category grades, this isn't a bad score either. Our nursing score is largely associated with a nursing home's nurse staffing. This place provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This is a relatively low total compared with most nursing homes. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality measures. While this facility got dinged a bit for nursing hours per resident, it excelled in a few of these quality-based measures. With fewer than five percent of its patients suffering from pressure ulcers, it fared well in this subcategory. This can be an indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can typically be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as having a protocol of moving a resident more frequently.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The final category we assessed was long-term care. This facility was given a C for this area. In the area of long-term care, we assess the quantity of care offered by a nursing home, rather than more sophisticated services. After looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 99.22481 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is better than the majority of nursing homes. This nursing home was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0.04 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
