Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

While this nursing home's overall grade was not bad, it really excelled in the category of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A- for that category, which is one of our best scores. Our inspection grades are tied to items located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities that excel in this area tend to have very few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these places generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. This particular nursing home received 9 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a good inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

This facility also excelled in the area of nursing care, with an impressive grade of A- in this category. The nursing score features several factors. The most heavily weighted variable is the number of hours nurses spent with patients. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed very well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facility's next most favorable area turned out to be short-term care. In that category, we awarded this facility a B-. Our short-term care scores are crucial for individuals in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically requires more highly-skilled nursing. This means a broad range of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we assessed the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 4.2 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most nursing homes, closer to half of their residents are able to return home so this figure is below average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The final area we assessed is long-term care, proved to be this nursing home's worst area. We awarded this nursing home a D in that category. This is one of the few dings of a quality profile. For long-term care residents, the facility's primary goal is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate residents. After we finished looking at the volume of nursing care, we next considered the facility's vaccination data. We were pleased to learn that this facility vaccinated 98.86364 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Surprisingly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility had fewer hospitalizations than the average nursing home. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.
