Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

In addition to being a quality facility overall, this nursing home also excelled in the area of inspections, where it earned an A+. Not many facilities performed better in that area. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing our inspection grades. One of those factors is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies end up being quite minor. This facility was assessed 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This means that the inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies an imminent risk to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

One of the other reasons we rated this nursing home so well is that it was given a strong long-term care grade. Indeed, long-term care ended up being its second highest category score. In that category, we gave this nursing home a score of A-. For patients seeking a permanent residence as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care grades are a key measure. On top of looking at the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 88.55721 percent of its residents, which is slightly below what we were hoping for. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0.04 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facility's third highest area turned out to be short-term care. In that area, we awarded this nursing home a B-. With our short-term care score, we strive to forge a sound gauge for rehabilitation. In this process, we assess the nursing home's level of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. Unfortunately, we were not able to track down registered nurse or physical therapy staffing data for this nursing home. The final metric we considered in this category is the number of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We discovered that just 5.3 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is actually below average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

The final category we assessed was nursing. We gave this facility a grade of D for our nursing category, making this its weakest grade. Nursing grades are largely tied to the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This facility averaged a meager 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing ratings. This place performed well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these metrics to be indicators of the quality of nursing care.
