Facility Inspections

Grade: A

With an overall grade this high, it should come as no surprise that this facility performed well in inspections, where it received an A. Arguably the most critical factor we consider in determining our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Places with better grades in this category most likely dodged the more severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. This particular nursing home received 6 deficiencies on its inspection report. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

This facility also was given a dominant long-term care grade. This actually ended up being this nursing home's second most impressive category grade. In that category, this facility received a score of A. When nursing homes receive this kind of grade in long-term care it is a good sign for resident care and suggests that the facility is well-staffed with nurses aids. After assessing the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 97.87736 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is much higher than the vast majority of nursing homes. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

To complement its strong performance in other areas, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A for our inspections rating. In calculating our nursing ratings, we look at both nursing hours and the skill levels of those nurses. This nursing home provides 0.3 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 facility has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can many times be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

The next area we rated is short-term care, in which this nursing home received a grade of B. This actually is this nursing home's weakest category. A facility is doing something right when their poorest score still outperforms most other nursing homes. Our short-term care grades are based in part on the nursing home's quantity of skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This means a broad range of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, not to mention other types of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. However, based on the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we looked at the percentage of patients that who were able to eventually return home from this facility. We found that 5.5 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.
