Facility Inspections

Grade: A

To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A for our inspections rating. Arguably the most critical factor we consider in calculating our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities with higher grades in this area typically dodged the more severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. While this facility had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G through L. This tells you the government inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. We should point out that deficiency-free inspections are uncommon in this industry.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

We also awarded this nursing home a grade of A- for our nursing grade. Our nursing score is mostly tied to a facility's level of nurse staffing. This facility provided 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed very well when it comes to avoiding 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

Turning to our third category, this nursing home also received a score of B for its short-term care rating. This is an above average grade in this category. Our short-term care grade is generally used to judge a nursing home's rehabilitation services To have highly scored rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to offer better levels of skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other types of therapists. Unfortunately, we were not able to locate information on registered nurse or physical therapy staffing for this nursing home. Lastly, we considered the number of patients who returned home from this nursing home. We found that 5.3 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The next category we assessed was long-term care. We awarded this facility a grade of D for long-term care, making this the facility's least impressive category grade. Nursing homes that do not fare well in long-term care often don't provide as much nursing care and also may be lagging in a few of the areas of routine healthcare services we looked at. Once we looked at the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination record. This nursing home vaccinated 93.424034 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which happens to be slightly less than we anticipated but still a reasonably acceptable figure. To our surprise, this place was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility has fewer hospitalizations than most nursing homes. This is its best score in this category.
