Facility Inspections

Grade: A

The primary reason this facility received a decent overall score is its excellent government inspections in recent years. We gave it one of our better scores in that category, with an A. This is a notably better grade than the facility's overall grade, which was decent but not in the elite range. Our inspection scores are tied to many items found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places that score well in this area have very few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these nursing homes generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. It doesn't appear that we have deficiency data for this facility. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

We also gave this facility an impressive score in long-term care. This nursing home received a grade of B+ in this area, which is one of our better scores. In a long-term care setting, the facility's primary goal is to maintain patients' quality of life and keep them safe. Once we assessed the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 87.17949 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is slightly less than we expected but still a decent figure. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The third highest category we gave this facility in any category came in the category of short-term care, where we awarded it a grade of C. In the category of short-term care, we try to assess indicators of a facility's rehabilitation services. We assess a nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. It does not look like this facility submitted information about its staffing of registered nurses or physical therapists. The last metric we looked at in this category is the number of patients who ultimately were able to return home from the facility. We found that just 5.3 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

The final category we graded was nursing, was this nursing home's least impressive category. We gave this facility a D in this area. This really is one of the couple of weak points in a quality report card. The nursing rating is based on many subcategories. The most important variable is the number of hours nurses spend with residents. This nursing home offered just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident each day. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing ratings. This facility performed well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
