Facility Inspections

Grade: A

To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this facility an A for our inspections rating. Inspection ratings weigh a host of factors included in a nursing home's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we rely on is the number and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with higher grades in this area generally have few of these severe deficiencies. While this facility had a few minor dings on its inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you the government inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A couple relatively minor dings are not the end of the world.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This nursing home is also strong in the category of long-term care, where it was awarded a score of B+. It outpaced most nursing homes in this area. Nursing homes that receive this type of score in long-term care tend to provide consistent around the clock care to ensure residents are kept in good health. Once we looked at the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we then looked at the facility's vaccination statistics. This facility vaccinated 93.85665 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is a bit below what we anticipated but still a reasonably acceptable figure. Finally, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

Turning to the third area, this nursing home also earned a score of B for its short-term care rating. This is a well above average score in this category. Our short-term care ratings are based on a nursing home's quantity of skilled highly skilled professionals. This includes a vast range of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, not to mention other types of therapy.

Finally, we assessed the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 5.5 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

The final category we rated was nursing, where this facility received a grade of B. This nursing home ended up being very solid in each category we looked at.

Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality-based metrics and this place excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any facility the state in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can often be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as by employing a policy of moving residents more frequently.
