Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

We also wanted to point out that this facility earned near flawless health inspections recently. We gave them an A+ in this category. These inspection grades take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these factors by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. We weren't able to find deficiency counts for this nursing home. We wish we had more data for this nursing home. Without the deficiency related data, it ended up being a challenge to evaluate this facility in this area.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This nursing home also was awarded a strong short-term care score. Indeed, we awarded it an above average score of B+ in this category. Our short-term care grades are considered to be more important for individuals requiring rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation usually requires more highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes not just nursing, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other types of therapy. This facility offered more physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than most nursing homes. This is what we like to find when assessing a nursing home in this category. The final measure we assessed in this area is the percentage of residents that who were able to eventually return home from the nursing home. It fared better than most nursing homes in this area with 52.2 percent of its residents returning home. With most facilities, fewer than half of their short-term residents are able to return home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

This facility is also strong in the area of nursing, where it received a grade of B+. It outperformed most nursing homes in this category. The nursing category consists of several factors, most of which are based on quantities of nurse staffing. This particular nursing home provided 3.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also looked at some quality-based measures in this category. This facility fared well in some of the quality-based metrics we looked at. By way of illustration, in terms of the number of its residents suffering from pressure ulcers, this nursing home performed better than the national average. This is generally an indicator that a nursing home has reliable quality controls in place. Pressure ulcers can generally be avoided with better nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

The next category we assessed is long-term care. We awarded this facility one of our more favorable grades in that category, with a grade of B. Although this isn't on par with some of this facility's other grades, it is nevertheless a positive score. Nursing homes that do well in this category tend to provide patients with better supervision and stay on top of routine healthcare services. One of the criteria we considered after nursing hours is vaccinations. This nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccine to 99.726776 percent of its patients. This is a reliable method to minimize unnecessary hospitalizations for the nursing home population. Finally, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.55 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
