Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

In addition to being a respectable nursing home overall, this facility also excelled in the category of inspections, where it received a grade of A+. Few facilities performed better in this category. Our inspection grades are based on items located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places that score well in this category typically have very few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these nursing homes generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. 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. Even some of the best nursing homes receive an occasional ding on their inspection report.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facility's next best category is its short-term care score, where it was awarded a grade of B-. In our short-term care assessment, we seek to forge a meaningful barometer for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we look at the nursing home's level of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. This nursing home excelled in the two key staffing areas we looked at. In fact, it offered more care from registered nurses and physical therapists than a typical nursing home. The final measure we looked at in this area is the number of patients who ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home. It fared better than most nursing homes in this area with 53 percent of its residents returning home. Unfortunately, at most nursing homes, fewer than half of their short-term residents are able to return home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

Turning to another strength for this facility, it also received an elite nursing rating. We gave this facility an D. We looked at the levels of nurses working for the nursing home, in addition to the quantity of time the nurses worked with residents, in determining our score in this area. This facility provided 3.7 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is below the national average. In addition to receiving below average scores for total nursing hours, this facility was less impressive in some of the quality-based measures we looked at in computing our nursing ratings. We looked at the percent of residents suffering pressure ulcers and found this place was at approximately 150 percent of the national average in this metric.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

This nursing home's worst category is long-term care, which is the last area we scored. For this category, we gave this nursing home a grade of just D. For prospective residents looking for a permanent place to live as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care grades are a key measure. In addition to assessing the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 98.93617 percent of its patients, which is higher than the vast majority of nursing homes. Surprisingly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.22 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home has less hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. Sadly, some of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.
