Facility Inspections

Grade: A

In addition to performing well in its overall grade, this nursing home performed at an even higher level in the area of inspections. In fact, it received a nearly flawless inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our highest grades in that category with a score of A. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing our inspection ratings. One key factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some of these are relatively minor. Fortunately, although this nursing home had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you the government inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Contributing to its profile, this nursing home also earned a score of B+ for its long-term care rating. This is a well above average grade in this category. Long-term care ratings in this range generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. After we finished looking at the amount of nursing care, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination record. This nursing home vaccinated 71.296295 percent of its residents for pneumonia. This facility also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had only 1.4 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facility's next best category was its nursing grade, where it received a grade of B-. While this didn't quite match its scores in some of the categories discussed above, this is still a decent score. Our nursing score is mostly associated with a facility's nurse staffing. This nursing home averages just 3 hours of nursing care per resident each day, but a significant percentage of those hours were provided by registered nurses. This is one of the more highly skilled levels of nurses. We apply quite a bit of weight to these skilled nursing hours in computing our nursing scores. Lastly, our nursing ratings also factor in some quality-focused metrics. We especially look at the percentage of residents who sustained pressure ulcers and major falls. These statistics are indicators of the quality of nursing care, since superior care can reduce these problems.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

Our last area is short-term care, in which we gave this nursing home a C in this area. In the area of short-term care, we attempt to qualify measures of a facility's rehabilitation services. We assess the facility's skilled nursing services, including the ones performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. This place excelled in the two key staffing areas we looked at. In fact, it provided more care from physical therapists and registered nurses than a typical nursing home. This is typically an excellent sign. Finally, we looked at the percentage of residents who ultimately were able to return home from this nursing home. We found that 38.1 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was actually below the national average.
