Facility Inspections

Grade: A

This facility received a strong overall grade as described above, but we especially wanted to point out its nearly flawless government inspections in recent years. We gave it an impressive grade of A in this area. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating our inspection ratings. One key factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies are quite insignificant. While this nursing home had some minor dings on its report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G through 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 safety or health. The fact that the deficiencies were relatively minor leaves us less concerned with this inspection report.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Adding to its profile, this facility also earned a grade of B+ for its short-term care rating. This is a well above average grade in this category. In the area of short-term care, we endeavor to qualify indicators of a facility's rehabilitation. We assess a nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we assessed the number of residents who ultimately returned home from this facility. We found that 5.4 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

This facility received a very good nursing grade this year as well. It received one of our better scores in that category with a grade of B+. We assessed the licensure of nurses working for the facility, as well as the quantity of time those nurses worked with residents, in calculating our grade in this category. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This place performed very well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

Turning to the final category, this nursing home was awarded a highly favorable long-term care grade. This facility didn't prove to have any identifiable weaknesses. If you are seeking services other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at long-term care grades. In addition to looking at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 85.44061 percent of its residents, which is slightly less than we anticipated. While its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we had hoped, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.05 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
