Facility Inspections

Grade: A

On top of faring well overall, this facility earned an excellent inspection report. Consequently, it received one of our highest scores in that area with an A. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing these inspection scores. One key factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies are relatively insignificant. 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. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

On the list of its many impressive grades, this nursing home was given an excellent long-term care grade. In fact, we gave it a grade of A in that area. Nursing homes that receive this type of score in this category typically provide consistent around the clock care to make sure patients are well cared for. After we finished looking at the amount of nursing care, we next considered the facility's vaccination records. This facility vaccinated 99.18699 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia is too frequently a life threatening condition for nursing home patients so we like it when a facility doesn't take any chances. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.03 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Turning to our third area, this facility also received a score of B+ for its short-term care rating. This is a well above average score in this area. Our short-term care grade is generally used to measure a nursing home's rehabilitation services To offer highly rated rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must feature better levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other licensed professionals. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last statistic we considered in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the facility and return home. We discovered that 5.7 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

The next category we graded ended up being this nursing home's worst category. Nevertheless, even in its weakest link we still gave it a respectable grade of B- in nursing. We analyzed the qualifications of nurses employed by the nursing home, in addition to the quantity of hours those nurses were with patients, in determining our rating in this area. This nursing home averages just 0.5 hours of nursing care per patient each day, which is not an impressive total. Finally, our nursing grades also consider quality-based measures, such as preventing major falls. Despite not having the highest total nursing hours per resident, this place actually performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is typically an indicator that a nursing home has quality controls in place. Many falls can be avoided if a nursing home supplies enough nurses to assist its patients.
