Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A- for our inspections rating. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating these inspection ratings. One key factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some end up being quite insignificant. We weren't able to locate deficiency counts for this nursing home. Without having access to the information regarding deficiencies for this facility, it is difficult to really grade the place in terms of this category.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

One of the other reasons we graded this facility so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing rating. This proved to be its second best category grade. In that category, we awarded this facility an B+. In calculating our nursing grades, we analyze both nursing hours and the skill levels of the nurses. This nursing home averages 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 facility performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a place has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can generally be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This nursing home also was awarded a strong short-term care score. Indeed, we awarded it an above average grade of B+ in this area. Our short-term care grade is typically used to measure a facility's performance with rehabilitation To offer high-end rehabilitation services, facilities generally must offer higher levels of highly skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other highly skilled individuals. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. However, according to the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we considered the percentage of patients who ultimately returned home from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The last area we analyzed was long-term care. We gave it a grade of C in that category. This is a decent grade in this category. In a long-term care setting, the facility's primary goal is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. One of the factors we considered after nursing hours was vaccinations. It does not look like this nursing home provided vaccination data. Lastly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
