Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

On top of performing well overall, this nursing home earned a very good inspection report this year as well. For this reason, it received one of our better scores in that category with a B+. Inspection grades weigh several factors found on a nursing home's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we weigh heavily is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with higher grades in this area usually have few of these severe deficiencies. This place received 8 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered severe. 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 leaves us less concerned with this inspection report.

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 primarily tied to a facility's level of nurse staffing. This facility provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality measures and this nursing home excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any place the nation in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can frequently be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as by employing a system of moving a resident even once per day.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

This nursing home was given a favorable short-term care grade as well. We awarded it one of our higher grades in that category with a score of B. Our short-term care scores are thought to be most meaningful for people requiring a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally mandates additional highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means not just nursing services, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. It doesn't appear that this nursing home submitted registered nurse or physical therapist staffing data. The final measure we considered in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We found that 5.5 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

The next category we analyzed is long-term care, where this nursing home was given a B. This nursing home proved to be very solid across the board. Long-term care scores of this caliber generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. After we finished assessing the amount of nursing care, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This facility vaccinated 98.96907 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia sadly can be a deadly condition for nursing home residents so we strongly prefer when a facility does not take any chances. Finally, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
