Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

In addition to receiving a great overall rating, this nursing home fared even better in the area of inspections which is based on the nursing home's recent inspections. We awarded it an A+ for that category, which is one of our highest scores. Perhaps the most important factor we consider in calculating our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities with higher grades in this category most likely dodged the most severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. While this facility had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means that the government inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A couple minor dings aren't necessarily the end of the world.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

Adding to its profile, this facility also earned a grade of B+ for its nursing rating. This is a well above average score in this category. The nursing category is based on a handful of components, most of which are tied to quantities of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also looked at certain nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing grades. These include minimizing residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We look at these metrics as reliable measures of the caliber of nursing care provided, since better care tends to reduce these problems.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The next highest area we awarded this facility in any area came in the area of short-term care, where we awarded it a C. Our short-term care scores are based in part on a nursing home's quantity of skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This includes a broad scope of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, not to mention other types of therapy. It does not look like this nursing home submitted information on registered nurse or physical therapist staffing. The last measure we assessed in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to return home from the facility. We found that just 40 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home. Unfortunately, this was below average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

Moving on to the next category, this nursing home received an acceptable long-term care score of C. In the area of long-term care, we look at the quantity of care offered by a facility, rather than more medically-intensive services. Once we looked at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination records. We were optimistic to discover that this nursing home vaccinated 99.09638 percent of its patients for pneumonia. This nursing home was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 1.43 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days.
