Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

On top of receiving a strong overall grade, this facility also earned an A+ inspection score. This grade is based on its recent government inspections. An A+ in this category is one of the highest complements we can offer a facility. Inspection grades are tied to many pieces of information found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places that excel in this category have very few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these places generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. This nursing home was hit with 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This tells you that the government inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies to pose an imminent risk to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

We also want to emphasize the fact that this facility was awarded a strong grade of A- in our long-term care category. Long-term care scores of this caliber generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. On top of looking at the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 98.33333 percent of its patients, which is much higher than the majority of nursing homes. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Turning to another strength for this facility, we awarded them one of our stronger scores in our short-term care category as well, with a grade of B+. Our short-term care grade is typically used to measure a nursing home's rehabilitation services In order to provide good rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to have better levels of highly skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other licensed professionals. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all facilities employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we considered the number of patients who were able to return home from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

The next category we analyzed is this nursing home's weakest area. However, even in its worst category we still gave it a decent grade of B- in nursing. The nursing grade includes many subcategories. The most important one is the number of hours nurses spent with patients. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Lastly, nursing scores also factor in quality-based assessments, such as preventing major falls. Despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours, this place performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is generally a good indicator that a place has quality controls in place. Many falls can be avoided if a nursing home supplies enough nurses aids to assist its patients.
