Facility Inspections

Grade: A

To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A for our inspections rating. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining our inspection ratings. One of those factors is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some are quite insignificant. This place was hit with 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This means that the government inspectors didn't deem any of these deficiencies to create an immediate threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

Among the reasons we rated this nursing home so highly is that it was awarded a favorable short-term care score. In fact, short-term care is its second most favorable category grade. In that area, we gave this nursing home a score of A. Our short-term care scores are likely more critical for residents needing rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation usually mandates more skilled nursing. This includes not merely nursing, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not all facilities employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final datapoint we assessed in this area is the percentage of patients who were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that 6.4 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

This nursing home is also above average in the category of long-term care, where it was given a grade of B. It performed more favorably than most nursing homes in this category. Facilities that do well in long-term care tend to be well-staffed and offer extensive hands on care to patients. In addition to looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 99.48718 percent of its patients, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia is often a life threatening condition for nursing home patients so we prefer when a nursing home does not roll the dice on this issue. Lastly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

The next category we scored is nursing. This nursing home was awarded a better than average nursing rating in our assessment, with a grade of B-. While this wasn't nearly as elite as a few of its other grades, this is nevertheless an acceptable score in this area. There are a number of subcategories within this grade. Many of these subcategories reflect the quantity of nurse staffing. This place provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Lastly, our nursing grades also consider quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. Despite not having the highest total nursing hours, this nursing home actually performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is often an indicator that a nursing home has sufficient quality controls in place. Some falls can be avoided if a facility provides enough nurses to assist its residents.
