Facility Inspections

Grade: A

On top of faring well overall, this nursing home received a nearly flawless inspection report. Consequently, it received one of our highest scores in that area with an A. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating these inspection scores. One key factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is usually more important than the number of deficiencies, as some of these can be relatively insignificant. This nursing home received 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This means that the inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies to be an imminent risk to resident health or safety. The fact that none of the deficiencies were severe made us feel better about this inspection report.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A

Adding to its strong resume, this facility also received an excellent nursing score, with a grade of A. Nursing grades are largely associated with the facility's nurse staffing. 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 facility performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a nursing home has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can typically be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

This facility also received a impressive short-term care score. In fact, this is its third strongest category score. In that area, we gave this facility a score of A. In computing our short-term care scores, we look at the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our purpose is to devise a scale for comparing the rehabilitation services of different facilities. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we assessed the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 6 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

Turning to the next category, this nursing home received a decent long-term care grade. While this wasn't quite as strong as several of its other category grades, this is truly nothing to be ashamed of. For residents in need of a permanent residence rather than skilled nursing, long-term care is an important category. One of the factors we considered on top of nurse's aid hours is vaccinations. Thankfully, this nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccination to 100 percent of its residents. This nursing home keeps its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
