Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

In addition to being a respectable facility overall, this place really excelled in the area of inspections, where it received an A-. Few facilities performed better in this category. Inspection ratings weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these issues by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this facility had a few minor dings on its report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you that the government inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Keep in mind that deficiency-free inspection reports are uncommon in this industry.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

One of the other reasons we graded this facility so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing score. In fact, nursing proved to be its second best category grade. In that area, we gave this facility an B. Our nursing score consists of quite a few factors, but the primary one is the number of nurse hours per patient per week. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This place performed very well when it comes to minimizing its residents' 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

This facility also was given a strong grade in our short-term care category. We gave this facility a better than average grade of B in this category. Our short-term care grades are vital for prospective residents in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally requires more highly-skilled nursing services. This means a wide range of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last measure we considered in this area is the percentage of patients that ultimately returned home from the nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

Our final area is long-term care, where we awarded this nursing home a grade of C in that area. In calculating our long-term care ratings, we assess the personal care offered to a nursing home's residents. After assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination records. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is higher than the average nursing home. This facility keeps its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
