Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

This facility received a strong overall score as described above, but we especially wanted to point out its excellent government inspections in recent years. We awarded them an impressive grade of A+ in this category. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating our inspection scores. One key factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some are quite minor. This facility was assessed 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This tells you that the inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies to pose an imminent risk to resident health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies aren't necessarily something to panic about.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

This facility was awarded strong grades in the category of short-term care as well. Consequently, we gave it one of our most superb scores in that category with a area of A-. In crafting these short-term care grades, we analyze the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. Our objective is to devise a scale for comparing the rehabilitation services of various facilities. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we looked at the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 6.4 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facility's third most favorable category was long-term care. In that area, we awarded this nursing home a B-. Long-term care grades are generally used to judge a nursing home's performance as a traditional convalescent home, as opposed to focusing on the skilled nursing services offered by a rehabilitation facility. In addition to assessing the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Thankfully, this nursing home gave the vaccine to 97.12919 percent of its patients, which is a very solid figure. Lastly, this facility was also able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

The last category we graded was nursing, which proved to be this nursing home's worst area. We awarded this nursing home a grade of D in this area. Unfortunately, this score pulled down the nursing home's overall profile a bit. We scrutinized the licensure of nurses employed by the nursing home, as well as the number of hours the nurses worked with residents, in calculating our rating in this area. This facility averaged just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident daily. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing scores. This facility fared well in terms of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
