Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

In addition to being a respectable facility overall, this facility also excelled in the category of inspections, where it earned an A-. Few facilities performed better in this area. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating our inspection ratings. One of those factors is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these are quite minor. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report, which is still very impressive. We should note that deficiency-free inspection reports are uncommon in the industry.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This nursing home also was given an impressive score in our short-term care category. We gave this facility an above average grade of B+ in that category. In computing our short-term care ratings, we assess the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our goal is to create a tool for comparing the rehabilitation services of nursing homes. Unfortunately, we were not able to find information on registered nurse or physical therapy staffing for this nursing home. The final measure we looked at in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that 5.8 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home's nursing grade appears to be one of its better features. The facility received a grade of B- in this category. Our nursing grade assesses many factors, however, the primary one is the number of nurse hours spent with patients. This nursing home averages just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis, which is not an impressive total. Finally, nursing grades also consider quality-based metrics, such as avoiding major falls. Despite not having the highest total nursing hours, this place performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is often a reliable indicator that a place has sufficient quality controls in place. Many falls can be avoided if a facility supplies enough nurses aids to assist its patients.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The final category we scored was long-term care. We gave this nursing home a D in long-term care, rendering this the nursing home's least impressive area. For prospective patients seeking a permanent residence rather than skilled nursing, long-term care is a very important category. In addition to assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 97.577095 percent of its patients. To our surprise, this facility also keeps its patients out of the hospital. It had just 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.
