Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

On top of being a quality nursing home overall, this nursing home really excelled in our inspections category, where it earned a grade of A+. Not many nursing homes fared better in this category. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining these inspection grades. One key factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some can be relatively insignificant. It does not appear that we were able to find information about this nursing home's deficiencies. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

We also awarded this facility a grade of A for our long-term care grade. When nursing homes receive a score in this range in long-term care it generally means it's well-staffed and is an overall good place to reside on a permanent basis. After looking at the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination data. This facility vaccinated 99.445984 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is significantly higher than the majority of nursing homes. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 1.67 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility has less hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

Turning to the area of nursing care, this was not one of this facility's strong suits. We awarded it a grade of D in this category. Clearly, this facility performed much better in the categories discussed above. Our nursing score assesses the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. We factor in both the levels of licensure of those nurses and the number of hours spent with patients. This facility offered just 2.9 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This figure is quite a bit below average. While this nursing home's nursing hours are below average, it surprised us in some of the qualitative metrics in this category. In particular, we were pleased to find that its residents are experiencing fewer pressure ulcers than the national average.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Moving on to the fourth category, we gave this facility a grade of D for our short-term care category. This is the nursing home's weakest category rating. Unfortunately, this grade pulled down the nursing home's overall profile to some degree. Our short-term care scores are believed to be more critical for people needing a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally requires higher levels of highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means not merely nursing, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. It appears that this nursing home was subpar in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its residents based on the staffing figures we considered. Lastly, we looked at the number of patients who were able to return home from this nursing home. It fared better in this area, with 54.3 percent of its residents returning home.
