Facility Inspections

Grade: A

One of the reasons this ended up being a strong nursing home is that it earned an impressive inspection grade. In fact, inspections turned out to be its best category. In that category, we awarded it a grade of A. Inspection grades take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can find more information about each of these issues by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This particular nursing home received 4 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a good inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

This facility was given impressive scores in the category of short-term care as well. Consequently, it received one of our most superb scores in that area with a area of A. Short-term care scores are based in part on a facility's quantity of skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This means a vast range of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other types of therapy. One of this nursing home's strength is that it offers more hours of care from registered nurses to its residents. Finally, we looked at the percentage of residents that ultimately returned home from this facility. We found that it performed as well as just about any nursing home in the country in this area with 63.2 percent of its residents returning home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

This facility is also strong in the area of nursing, where it received a grade of B. It outperformed most nursing homes in this category. Our nursing grade is based on the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. We look at both the levels of skill of those nurses and the number of hours spent with residents. This place provided 4.2 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This is an extremely impressive figure which typically leads to higher quality care. Finally, we also looked at nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. These include minimizing residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We look at these datapoints as predictive indicators of the caliber of nursing care offered, since better care tends to reduce these problems.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The next category we rated is long-term care. In this area, we gave this facility an acceptable grade of B-. This actually ended up being this facility's worst area. Long-term care grades are used to gauge a facility's performance as a traditional nursing home, as opposed to focusing more on the skilled nursing services offered by a rehabilitation facility. In addition to assessing the high quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff at this nursing home, we also were impressed by the nursing home's vaccination record. This facility administered the pneumonia vaccine to 100 percent of its residents, which is above average. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
