Facility Inspections

Grade: A

To pair with its favorable overall grade, we gave this place an A for the area of inspections. Perhaps the most significant factor we look at in calculating our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. Facilities with higher scores in this area most likely avoided the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. This nursing home was assessed 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered severe. This means that the inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies to be an immediate threat to resident safety or health. The fact that none of the deficiencies were severe made us feel better about this inspection report.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

Among this facility's other strengths is its elite nursing grade. We awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with a grade of A-. Nursing grades are largely based on a facility's level of nurse staffing. This facility provided 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed very well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This facility received a strong short-term care grade as well. We gave it one of our higher scores in that category with a score of B+. Our short-term care grade is often employed to measure a nursing home's rehabilitation services To have highly scored rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to have better levels of highly skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other highly skilled individuals. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last metric we assessed in this area is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We found that 5.2 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The last category we scored ended up being this nursing home's poorest area. However, even in its worst category we still awarded it a respectable grade of C in long-term care. If you are seeking anything other than rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each nursing home's long-term care ratings. In addition to looking at the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 97.42765 percent of its residents. Finally, this nursing home was also able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
