Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

One of the reasons this ended up being a strong facility is that it earned an impressive inspection rating. Inspections is its best category grade. In that area, we gave this facility an A-. Arguably the most significant factor we consider in determining our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Facilities with higher grades in this category typically avoided the more severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. This particular nursing home received 7 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a good inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

Adding to its strong performance in other areas, we gave this nursing home an B+ for our nursing rating. There are a number of criteria included in this area. Most of these factors relate to staffing levels. This particular nursing home provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This facility performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a nursing home has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can many times be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

The third area we looked at was short-term care. This nursing home received a very positive short-term care score, with a grade of B in this category. Our short-term care grade is commonly used to gauge a nursing home's rehabilitation services In order to have highly rated rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must have better levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other types of therapists. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last item we considered in this category is the number of patients that were able to return home from the facility. We found that 5.3 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The final category we looked at is long-term care, which ended up being this facility's weakest area. We gave this nursing home a D in that category. Sadly, this category pulled down the nursing home's overall grade a bit. In a long-term care environment, the nursing home's primary objective is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. On top of assessing the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. Fortunately, this nursing home provided the vaccine to 96.31337 percent of its patients, which is a very respectable figure. To our surprise, this place also keeps its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.
