Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

In addition to receiving a strong overall rating, this facility fared even better in our inspections category which is based on the facility's recent government inspection reports. We awarded it an A+ for that area, which is one of our highest grades. Our inspection grades are tied to several items located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places that excel in this area typically have few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these nursing homes generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. Unfortunately, we were not able to find information on deficiency's for this nursing home. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

Adding to this facility's list of strengths, it also was awarded a high-end long-term care grade. We gave them a strong grade of A- in this category. Long-term care scores in this range generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. In addition to considering the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 82.828285 percent of its residents. This is slightly less than we anticipated but still a reasonably acceptable percentage. Although its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we hoped for, at least this place was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home's next best category was nursing. We awarded it a grade of B- in this category. While this wasn't quite as good as some of its other category grades, this isn't a bad score either. Our nursing rating consists of a handful of datapoints, but the main one is the quantity of nurse hours per patient per week. This nursing home provides only 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a somewhat uninspiring figure which is well below average. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality-based metrics. While this nursing home got dinged a bit for nursing hours per resident, it actually excelled in a few of these quality metrics. With fewer than five percent of its residents suffering from pressure ulcers, it did remarkably well in this metric. This can be an indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can often be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as by employing a policy of moving a resident at least once a day.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The next category we graded was short-term care. We awarded this nursing home a grade of C in that category. In determining our short-term care ratings, we look at the facility's levels of highly skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other highly trained professionals. This area is more often than not a meaningful measure of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. It doesn't look like this nursing home provided information about its staffing of registered nurses or physical therapists. The final statistic we looked at in this category is the percentage of residents that were able to return home from the facility. We found that just 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home. Unfortunately, this was below average.
