Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

In addition to being a great overall grade, this facility also received A+ health inspections in recent years. Its inspections were virtually flawless. Inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these items by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This nursing home was hit with 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This means that the government inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies to be an immediate risk to resident health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

In addition, this nursing home also was given favorable short-term care scores in our assessment. Indeed, we gave it one of our higher scores in that area, with a grade of B+. In the category of short-term care, we attempt to qualify indicators of a facility's rehabilitation services. We look at the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. Fortunately, this nursing home offers both physical therapists and registered nurses. Not all facilities offer both. Lastly, we considered the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home, which as an area this nursing home performed much more favorably. It outperformed the vast majority of nursing homes in the nation in this area with 62.7 percent of its patients returning home. This is a significantly higher rate than most facilities.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

The third area we assessed was long-term care. This nursing home was awarded a very positive long-term care score, with a grade of B+ in the category. When facilities receive a grade in this range in this category it typically means it's well-staffed and is a quality place to live on a permanent basis. Once we assessed the volume of care provided by nurses, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 99.604744 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia sadly can be a dangerous condition for nursing home patients so we strongly prefer when a nursing home doesn't roll the dice on this issue. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 1.19 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home had fewer hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

The final area we rated was nursing, proved to be this facility's least impressive area. We gave this nursing home a grade of D in this category. This really is one of just a couple of dings on an otherwise strong report card. In computing our nursing grades, we weigh both the number of hours nurses spend with residents and the skill levels of those nurses. We do not think quantity of care is the reason for this facility's poor nursing grade. With 3.9 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis, this place actually surpassed the national average. Finally, we turn to some quality-focused statistics in rounding out our nursing grades. Specifically, we look at the percent of patients who sustained pressure ulcers and major falls. We look at these areas as reliable measures of the quality of nursing care, since better care tends to reduce these problems.
