Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

To pair with a favorable overall grade, we awarded this place an A+ for inspections. Our inspection scores account for several factors included in a facility's inspection report. One key criteria we rely on is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with higher scores in this area tend to have very few severe deficiencies. This particular nursing home received 3 deficiencies on its inspection report. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

To complement its impressive performance in other areas, we gave this facility a grade of A- for its long-term care score. When facilities receive this type of score in this category it is a good sign for resident care and indicates that the nursing home is well-staffed with nurses and aids. Once we looked at the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 95.93496 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is better than most nursing homes. This facility was also able to keep its residents out of the hospital. Although it had 1.91 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, its risk adjusted statistic was better than most nursing homes due to it having some more complicated patients.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This facility is also strong in the category of short-term care, where it was given a grade of B+. It outpaced most facilities in this area. In our short-term care score, we seek to forge a valuable gauge for rehabilitation. In doing so, we assess a facility's offerings of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. It does not look like this facility submitted registered nurse or physical therapist staffing data. The final item we considered in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. It was above average in this area with 53.8 percent of its residents returning home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

Switching gears to the fourth category, this nursing home was given an acceptable nursing score. While this isn't as dominant as some of its other grades, this is really not a major area of concern. We assessed the levels of nurses at the nursing home, as well as the quantity of time those nurses worked with residents, in calculating our grade in this category. This place provides only 0 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This is a somewhat discouraging figure as it is well below average. Lastly, we look at quality-based statistics, such as the percent of patients who sustained pressure ulcers and major falls. These metrics are decent indicators of the quality of nursing care.
