Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

To pair with its favorable overall performance, we gave this facility an A- for the area of inspections. Perhaps the most important factor we look at in determining our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes with higher scores in this area typically dodged the most severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. This particular nursing home received 3 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: B

Adding to its strong performance in other categories, we awarded this facility an B for nursing. Nursing scores are primarily based on the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home averages 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed very well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

This nursing home is also strong in the area of long-term care, where it received a score of B. It performed more favorably than most facilities in this category. In a long-term care setting, the facility's primary objective is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. Once we looked at the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we then looked at the facility's vaccination record. This nursing home vaccinated 93.19319 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which happens to be a bit less than we were hoping for but still a decent percentage. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

The last category we rated is short-term care. In that category, we gave this facility a very solid grade of B. In calculating our short-term care grades, we quantify the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our objective is to devise a barometer for sizing up the rehabilitation services of various facilities. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final measure we considered in this area is the number of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
