Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

To pair with its favorable overall score, we awarded this facility an A- for the area of inspections. Inspection ratings account for several factors found on a facility's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we consider is the number and severity of deficiencies. Places with higher scores in this area tend to have very few severe deficiencies. This particular nursing home received 8 deficiencies on its inspection report. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

We also gave this nursing home a score of A- for our long-term care grade. Long-term care ratings of this caliber generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. Once we finished looking at the volume of care provided by nurses, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This facility vaccinated 99.25926 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia is too frequently a dangerous health condition for nursing home patients so we strongly prefer when a facility doesn't take any chances. Lastly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

This nursing home also received a strong nursing score. In fact, we awarded it an above average grade of B+ in this area. Nursing scores are largely tied to a nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.3 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-minus

The final category we analyzed is short-term care, in which this nursing home was given a grade of B-. While this wound up being its lowest category grade, this is nevertheless not a bad grade. Short-term care grades are based on the facility's quantity of skilled nursing services. This means a broad range of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, not to mention other forms of therapy. It does not look like this nursing home provided information about its staffing of registered nurses or physical therapists. Finally, we looked at the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 5.2 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most nursing homes, closer to half of their residents are able to return home so this figure is below average.
