Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

We also wanted to emphasize the fact that this nursing home has received near flawless government inspections in recent years. We awarded them an impressive grade of A+ in this area. Perhaps the most critical factor we look at in calculating our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. Nursing homes with higher grades in this category typically avoided the most severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. This nursing home received 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be severe. This means that the government 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

Among this facility's other strengths is its elite nursing grade. We awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with a grade of A. When computing a facility's nursing score, we weigh the quantity of hours nurses spend with residents as well as the skill levels of those nurses. This nursing home averages 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This place performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a place has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can typically be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

Turning to the next area, this facility also received a score of B for its long-term care rating. This is a well above average score in this area. Facilities that do well in long-term care tend to be well-staffed and provide extensive hands on care to residents. Once we looked at the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This facility vaccinated 98.21826 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is much higher than most nursing homes. Lastly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

Switching gears to our last area, this nursing home was given an acceptable short-term care grade. Even though this was not as impressive as a few of its other category grades, this is really a middle of the pack score. Our short-term care ratings are critical for prospective residents requiring rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally mandates additional skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means a vast scope of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final datapoint we looked at in this area is the number of residents who were able to leave the facility and return home. We discovered that just 3.3 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is actually below average.
