Facility Inspections

Grade: A

To pair with its strong overall score, we awarded this nursing home an A for our inspections rating. Arguably the most significant factor we look at in calculating our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes with better grades in this area most likely avoided the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. This nursing home received 7 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered to be major deficiencies. This means that the inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies an immediate risk to resident safety or health. Remember that deficiency-free inspection reports are rare in this industry.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

This nursing home also received a very impressive nursing grade. In fact, this turned out to be its second best category grade. In that area, we awarded this facility a grade of A-. Nursing scores are primarily tied to the nursing home's nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 3.6 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also looked at certain nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing grades. These include minimizing residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We view these areas as reliable measures of the quality of nursing care being provided, since better care tends to reduce these problems.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Turning to the third area, this nursing home also earned a score of B+ for its short-term care rating. This is a well above average score in this area. With our short-term care score, we seek to craft a sound gauge for rehabilitation services. In this process, we analyze a facility's scope of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. One of this nursing home's strengths is registered nurse hours. We found that it offers more care from registered nurses to its residents than most facilities. Lastly, we looked at the number of residents who who were able to eventually return home from this facility. We found that it performed as well as just about any facility in the country with 58.8 percent of its patients returning home. Most places are below 50 percent in this area.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

In the last category we scored, this nursing home was awarded a very favorable grade of B+ in our long-term care category. With this score, the nursing home wrapped up a very favorable report card. For prospective residents in need of a permanent place to live rather than rehabilitation, long-term care is an important category. In addition to looking at the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 77.604164 percent of its patients. This is slightly below what we anticipated. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
