Facility Inspections

Grade: A

This nursing home received a quality overall grade as described above, but we especially would like to emphasize its excellent health inspections in recent years. We awarded them an A in this area. Inspection scores weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these factors by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This particular nursing home received 8 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: B-plus

This nursing home is also above average in the category of short-term care, where it was given a grade of B+. It outperformed most nursing homes in this area. In crafting our short-term care ratings, we analyze the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. Our objective is to devise a tool for comparing the rehabilitation services of various facilities. Unfortunately, we weren't able to locate registered nurse or physical therapy staffing data for this facility. The final metric we assessed in this category is the number of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We found that 7 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

This facility was given a strong long-term care score as well. We gave it one of our higher scores in that area with a grade of B. When nursing homes receive a score in this range in this category it generally means it has plenty of staff and is an overall good place to reside on a permanent basis. On top of assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents, which is very impressive. Pneumonia can be a dangerous condition for nursing home patients so we like it when a nursing home does not leave this to chance. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

The next area we assessed was nursing. We awarded it a grade of B- in this area. This is a perfectly acceptable grade in this area. Our nursing rating is based on the nursing home's nurse staffing levels. We weigh both the levels of training of the nurses as well as the quantity of hours spent with patients. This nursing home provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This figure is significantly below average. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures. Although this facility got dinged a bit for its nursing hours per resident, it excelled in a few of these quality metrics. With less than five percent of its residents suffering from pressure ulcers, it performed remarkably well in this subcategory. This is often an indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can typically be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as having a system of moving residents more frequently.
