Facility Inspections

Grade: A

To pair with its decent overall grade, we gave this nursing home an A for our inspections rating. This grade is far better than its overall grade. Our inspection grades are tied to pieces of information located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes that receive favorable grades in this area tend to have very few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these facilities should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. Unfortunately, we weren't able to find information on deficiency's for this nursing home. Without having all of the deficiency data for this nursing home, it ended up being difficult to really grade the place in the area of inspections.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facilities second most favorable category was short-term care. We awarded it a grade of B- in this category. This is essentially a middle of the pack score in this area. In the area of short-term care, we attempt to evaluate indicators of a facility's rehabilitation services. We look at the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we considered the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 5 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most nursing homes, closer to half of their patients are able to return home so this figure is below average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

This facility's next best category grade came in the area of nursing. In that category, we gave this nursing home a grade of C. The nursing rating weighs many subcategories, however, the primary consideration is the quantity of nurse hours spent with patients. This facility provides 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a lower figure than we were hoping for. Finally, our nursing scores also consider quality-based metrics, such as avoiding major falls. Despite not having the highest total nursing hours, this nursing home performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is usually an indicator that a facility has quality controls in place. Many falls can be avoided if a nursing home supplies enough nurses aids to assist its residents.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The next area we graded is long-term care. This facility received a C in this category. For residents seeking a permanent place to live as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care grades are a key measure. In addition to assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Fortunately, this nursing home gave the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents, which is a very solid percentage. This place keeps its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
