Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

One of the many reasons this ended up being a great nursing home is that it received an impressive grade in inspections. Inspections ended up being its best category. In this area, we awarded this facility an A-. Our inspection ratings account for several factors found on a nursing home's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we weigh heavily is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Places with higher scores in this category generally have very few of these severe deficiencies. Fortunately, although this facility had a few minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are found in categories G through L. This tells you that the inspectors didn't consider 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 made us feel better about this inspection report.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

This facility also was superb in the category of short-term care, where it received a grade of A-. Not many facilities received a better grade in this area. Our short-term care grade is typically employed to measure a nursing home's rehabilitation services. To provide highly scored rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to provide better levels of skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other types of therapists. One of this nursing home's strengths is registered nurse hours. We found that it offers more care from registered nurses to its residents than most facilities. Lastly, we looked at the number of patients who returned to the community from this nursing home. It outperformed the vast majority of facilities with 57.3 percent of its residents returning home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Turning to our next area, this nursing home also received a score of B+ for its long-term care rating. This is a well above average grade in this area. When facilities receive a score in this range in long-term care it generally means it has plenty of staff and is an overall good place to reside on a permanent basis. After looking at the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 99.48321 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is far higher than most nursing homes. The last statistic we assessed was its hospitalization rate. Although it had 2.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, its risk adjusted metric was middle of the road since it had more complex patients.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

In the last area, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A- for its nursing score. This finished off a very strong profile. We scrutinized the qualifications of nurses employed by the facility, as well as the quantity of hours the nurses worked with residents, in determining our score in this category. This nursing home averages 3.6 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also factored a few quality-based metrics into our nursing grades. This facility was relatively weak in two of the major areas we focus on, with below average scores for minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. These areas are generally reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care provided.
