Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

In addition to being a great overall grade, this facility also received A+ health inspections in recent years. Its inspections were virtually flawless. Arguably the most significant factor we consider in computing our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. Places with higher grades in this category typically avoided the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. It doesn't look like we were able to find deficiency data for this nursing home. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

We also wanted to alert you to the fact that this facility was awarded a strong grade of A in our short-term care category. In determining these short-term care scores, we look at the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. Our objective is to create a barometer for comparing the rehabilitation services of different nursing homes. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 6.3 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

In addition, this facility also was given favorable long-term care grades in our assessment. Indeed, we gave it one of our higher grades in that category, with a score of B+. For prospective residents looking for a permanent place to live as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care grades are an important measure. On top of considering the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 89.43662 percent of its residents. This is a bit lower than we expected but still a decent figure. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

The final area we rated is this facility's poorest category. Nevertheless, even its lowest point would actually be a strength for most facilities. We gave it a strong grade of B for nursing. Our nursing rating is based on the facility's nurse staffing levels. We factor in both the levels of licensure of the nurses as well as the amount of time spent with patients. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This place performed very well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
