Facility Inspections

Grade: A

To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A for our inspections rating. Arguably the most significant factor we look at in computing our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a facility's inspection reports. Facilities with higher scores in this area most likely dodged the most severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. This nursing home was hit with 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This tells you that the inspectors did not consider any of these deficiencies to create an immediate threat to patient health or safety. The fact that the deficiencies were relatively minor leaves us less concerned with this inspection report.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

This facility really excelled in the area of nursing, where it received a grade of A-. Few nursing homes performed better in this area. Nursing scores are largely associated with a facility's nurse staffing. This facility provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality-based metrics and this facility excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any place the state in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can typically be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as by having a protocol of turning a patient even once per day.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

This nursing home is also strong in the area of long-term care, where it received a score of B. It performed more favorably than most facilities in this category. Facilities that receive this type of grade in long-term care tend to provide consistent around the clock care to ensure patients are kept in good health. After considering the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination statistics. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its residents for pneumonia. Vaccines are vital to keeping residents healthy. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

The last area we assessed was short-term care. This nursing home was given a favorable short-term care rating this year, with a B. This nursing home really did not have any weak links. In the category of short-term care, we try to evaluate measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We assess the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all facilities employs these types of nurses. However, according to the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we considered the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 4.1 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.
