Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

To go along with its favorable overall grade, we gave this facility an A- for the area of inspections. Inspection scores take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these issues by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Fortunately, although this nursing home had some minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you the inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. The fact that none of the deficiencies were severe made us feel better about this inspection report.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

One of the other reasons we graded this facility so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing grade. In that category, we awarded this facility an A-. The nursing rating features many subcategories. The most important one is the amount of time nurses spent with residents. This nursing home provided 3.4 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. Roughly a quarter of these hours were provided by registered nurses, which are among the most skilled nurses. This is an impressive ratio of skilled nursing care. We weight these hours more in determining our nursing grades. Lastly, we also looked at a few quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This place excelled in these areas, with excellent scores for minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. These areas are generally reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care a nursing home provides.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This nursing home also received a favorable short-term care score. In fact, we gave it an above average score of B+ in this category. Our short-term care ratings are likely more meaningful for patients in need of a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually mandates additional skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means not merely nursing services, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. When we assessed this facility's nursing hours, we found it provided substantially more care from registered nurses than most facilities. The final item we assessed in this category is the number of residents that who were able to eventually return home from the facility. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home rather than remaining at the nursing home permanently.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The final category we assessed was long-term care. In this category, we awarded this nursing home a decent grade of C. This actually proved to be this facility's worst category. In computing these long-term care ratings, we look at the facility's ability to maintain its permanent residents' health and quality of life. After assessing the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination record. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is more than the majority of nursing homes. Lastly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 1.64 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility had fewer hospitalizations than the average nursing home.
