Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

To pair with its favorable overall score, we awarded this nursing home an A- for our inspections rating. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing these inspection grades. One of those factors is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be quite insignificant. This nursing home was assessed 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This indicates that the government inspectors did not consider any of these deficiencies to cause an immediate threat to patient health or safety. Remember that deficiency-free inspections are uncommon in this industry.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

Among its many impressive grades, this facility received an excellent nursing grade. In fact, we gave it an B+ in that area. Nursing grades are primarily associated with the nursing home's nurse staffing. This facility provided 2.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This place performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a nursing home has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can generally be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

The next category we assessed was long-term care. This nursing home received a favorable long-term care grade, with a grade of B in the category. Facilities that receive this kind of score in this category typically provide consistent around the clock care to make sure residents are kept in good health. In addition to considering the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia is often a life or death ailment for nursing home patients so we like it when a nursing home doesn't take any chances. This facility was also able to keep its patients out of the hospital. It had only 1.48 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The next area we looked at is short-term care. In this area, we awarded this facility a solid grade of B-. This ended up being this nursing home's least impressive category. Our short-term care scores are crucial for people needing rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually mandates more skilled nursing services. This means a broad range of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not all facilities employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we considered the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most facilities, closer to half of their patients are able to return home so this figure is below average.
