Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

In addition to being a strong facility overall, it also earned A+ health inspections recently. Its inspections are nearly flawless. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing our inspection grades. One critical factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these can be relatively insignificant. This nursing home was hit with 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered severe. This tells you that the inspectors did not consider any of these deficiencies to pose 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: A-plus

We also wanted to emphasize the fact that this nursing home excelled in our long-term care rating. We awarded them an elite score of A+ in this area. Facilities that receive this kind of grade in this category typically provide consistent around the clock care to ensure residents are well cared for. In addition to assessing the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients. Vaccines are vital to keeping residents healthy. The last datapoint we looked at was its hospitalization rate. We found that this facility had 2.16 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

This facility's next best category grade came in the area of nursing. In that category, we gave this nursing home a grade of C. This wasn't quite on par with some of its other category grades mentioned above. Our nursing rating includes quite a few factors, most of which are associated with levels of nurse staffing. This place averages just 3.3 hours of nursing care per patient each day, which is well below average. Lastly, nursing ratings also consider quality-based metrics, such as avoiding major falls. Despite not having the highest total nursing hours, this place actually performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is typically an indicator that a nursing home has quality controls in place. Many falls could be avoided if a nursing home provides enough nurses aids to assist its patients.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The next category we looked at is short-term care. In this area, we awarded this facility an acceptable grade of C. This actually was this facility's worst area. With our short-term care rating, we try to forge a valuable gauge for rehabilitation services. In this process, we look at a nursing home's levels of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. We were pleased to find that this nursing home employs both registered nurses and physical therapists. The same can't be said for all nursing homes. Lastly, we considered the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This proved to be more of a strength for this facility. In fact, we found that it outperformed the majority of nursing homes in the nation with 54.2 percent of its patients returning home.
