Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

On top of being a strong nursing home overall, this facility especially excelled in the area of inspections, where it received an A+. Few nursing homes fared better in this category. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing these inspection scores. One critical factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies end up being quite minor. This facility was assessed 6 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be severe. This means that the inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies to create an immediate 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: B-plus

This nursing home also was given a favorable long-term care score. Indeed, we awarded it an above average score of B+ in this category. When facilities receive this kind of score in this category it is usually a good sign for resident care and indicates that the facility is well-staffed with nurses and aids. One of the datapoints we considered on top of nursing hours is vaccines. This nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccine to 100 percent of its patients. Vaccination is a proven method to avoid unnecessary deaths for the elderly population. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

This nursing home also received an impressive short-term care score. Indeed, we gave it an above average grade of B in this category. Our short-term care grades are based in part on a nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This includes a vast spectrum of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, not to mention other types of therapy. It doesn't appear that this nursing home submitted data regarding its registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. Lastly, we looked at the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 6.2 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

Our final area is nursing, where we awarded this facility a grade of C in that category. Our nursing grade is mostly based on a facility's nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures. While this nursing home got dinged a bit for nursing hours, it excelled in some of these quality metrics. With less than five percent of its residents suffering from pressure ulcers, it did very well in this subcategory. This is typically an indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can typically be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as employing a protocol of moving a patient more frequently.
