Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

In addition to receiving a great overall score, this place also earned first-rate government inspections in recent years. We gave it one of our best scores in that category, with a grade of A+. These inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can find more information about each of these items by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This facility was assessed 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered to be severe. This tells you that the government inspectors didn't deem any of these deficiencies an immediate threat to patient safety or health. We should point out that deficiency-free inspections are rare in the industry.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Adding to its profile, this facility also earned a score of B+ for its short-term care rating. This is an above average grade in this area. Our short-term care grades are based on a facility's quantity of skilled nursing services. This means a vast spectrum of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other types of therapy. We were not able to find information about this nursing home's registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. The last datapoint we looked at in this area is the number of residents who were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that 6.2 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home's third most favorable area was long-term care. We gave it a grade of B- in this area. This is essentially a middle of the road score in this area. Long-term care scores are based in part on a nursing home's quantity of nursing care. This means a vast scope of personal care services, ranging from help with activities of daily living to routine healthcare services. One of the datapoints we considered on top of nursing hours is vaccinations. Thankfully, this facility administered the pneumonia vaccine to 98.49624 percent of its residents. Lastly, this place was also able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

Moving on to our last area, this facility was given a respectable nursing score of C. Our nursing grade analyzes quite a few components, however, the paramount consideration is the level of nurse hours per patient per week. This particular facility provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This figure is significantly below average. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics. While this nursing home got dinged a bit for nursing hours, it actually excelled in a few of these quality-based measures. With fewer than five percent of its patients suffering from pressure ulcers, it fared well in this subcategory. This can be an indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can frequently be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as by having a policy of turning patients even once per day.
