Facility Inspections

Grade: A

On top of being a strong facility overall, this facility also excelled in the area of inspections, where it received an A. Not many facilities fared better in that category. Inspection grades account for a host of factors included in a facility's inspection reports. One key criteria we rely on is the number and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with higher grades in this category generally have few severe deficiencies. Fortunately, although this place had a few minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means that the government inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. The fact that none of the deficiencies were severe leaves us less concerned with this inspection report.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

This nursing home was awarded strong scores in the category of short-term care as well. As a result, we gave it one of our strongest grades in that area with a score of A-. With our short-term care score, we seek to forge a valuable barometer for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we analyze a facility's level of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. Unfortunately, it does not look like this nursing home submitted registered nurse or physical therapist staffing data. The last metric we looked at in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the facility and return home. We discovered that 6.3 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

Another strong feature for this facility is that it received an impressive nursing grade. In that area, we awarded this facility a grade of B. Nursing scores are mostly based on the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This particular nursing home provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This place performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a place has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can frequently be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The next category we looked at was long-term care. This nursing home received a very good long-term care rating in our assessment, with a C. Even though this is not nearly as impressive as some of its other scores, this remains a decent grade for this category. Our long-term care grade is typically used to measure a facility's performance as a traditional convalescent home, as opposed to focusing on the skilled nursing services provided by a rehabilitation facility. On top of assessing the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 99.21569 percent of its patients, which is better than the average nursing home. Finally, this place was also able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
