Facility Inspections

Grade: A

In addition to being a respectable nursing home overall, this facility really excelled in the category of inspections, where it received an A. Few facilities performed better in this area. Our inspection ratings account for several factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we consider is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Places with better grades in this category tend to have very few severe deficiencies. Fortunately, although this nursing home had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you that the government inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A few relatively minor deficiencies aren't something to panic about.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

Another one of this facility's more favorable category scores was in the area of short-term care. In that category, we awarded this facility a B. It actually outperformed most facilities in this category. With our short-term care grade, we endeavor to craft a fair measure for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we analyze the facility's offerings of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. This nursing home employs both physical therapists and registered nurses. Not all facilities employ these skilled professionals. Lastly, we assessed the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. This proved to be a real strength for this facility. It outperformed the vast majority of facilities in the nation in this area with 63.7 percent of its patients returning home. This is a significantly higher rate than most facilities.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

We also gave this nursing home a decent score in the category of nursing care, with a grade of C. Our nursing category consists of many factors, most of which are tied to nursing hours. This particular nursing home provided 3.7 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, our nursing grades also factor in some quality-focused statistics. Specifically, we look at the percent of residents who sustained pressure ulcers and major falls. We look at these metrics as good measures of the quality of nursing care, since better care tends to reduce these problems.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The last area we assessed was long-term care. In this category, we awarded this nursing home a grade of C. For prospective residents seeking a permanent place to live rather than skilled nursing, long-term care grades are an important measure. On top of looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home provided the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients, which is higher than the average nursing home. This facility keeps its patients out of the hospital. While it had 2.08 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, its risk adjusted statistic was better than most nursing homes since it had some more complicated patients.
