Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

This facility's overall score was bolstered by the fact that it has earned favorable health inspections in recent years. We gave them one of our better scores in this category, with a B+. This is a notably better grade than the facility's overall grade. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing these inspection ratings. One critical factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some are relatively minor. 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.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

We also awarded this facility a favorable grade in nursing. This facility earned a grade of B+ in this category, which is one of our better grades. There are several subcategories included in this area. Many of these subcategories relate to staffing levels. This nursing home averages 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 facility has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can typically be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home received its next most favorable category score in the area of long-term care. We gave this nursing home a grade of B- in this category, which is an acceptable grade. Our long-term care ratings are based in part on the nursing home's volume of nursing services. This means a broad spectrum of personal care services, ranging from assistance with activities of daily living to routine medical services. On top of assessing the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its residents. This nursing home was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

Switching gears to the fourth area, this facility was given an acceptable short-term care grade of C. In determining our short-term care ratings, we look at the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The goal is to formulate a tool for sizing up the rehabilitation services of different nursing homes. Unfortunately, it doesn't appear that this facility provided data regarding its registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. The final datapoint we assessed in this category is the number of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 5.1 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is below average.
