Facility Inspections

Grade: A

This nursing home received a quality overall grade as described above, but we especially wanted to point out its excellent health inspections in recent years. We gave them an A in this area. Inspection ratings are based on items found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places that score well in this area tend to have few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these facilities generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. This place received 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This means that the government inspectors did not deem any of these deficiencies to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A few minor dings aren't necessarily something to panic about.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

This nursing home truly excelled in the category of short-term care, where it received a grade of A-. Not many nursing homes performed better in this category. Our short-term care ratings are probably more critical for patients in need of a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally mandates additional highly-skilled nursing services. This includes not just nursing services, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we looked at the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 6.4 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

This facility received a very good nursing grade this year as well. It received one of our better scores in that category with a grade of B. The nursing rating assesses a handful of factors, many of which are associated with nursing hours. This facility provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed very well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Moving on to the last area, we gave this facility a D for long-term care. This is the facility's weakest category grade. Sadly, this grade hurt the nursing home's overall grade to some degree. In a long-term care setting, the primary goal is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. In addition to looking at the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients. To our surprise, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility has fewer hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. Sadly, a few of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.
