Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

In addition to being a respectable nursing home overall, this facility also excelled in the area of inspections, where it earned an A-. Few facilities performed better in this area. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining our inspection ratings. One of those factors is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be quite insignificant. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Even some of the best nursing homes receive an occasional ding on their inspection report.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

In addition, we awarded this facility a B in our long-term care category. This is one of our better scores. Long-term care ratings in this range generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. On top of considering the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 99.03846 percent of its residents, which is significantly higher than the majority of nursing homes. Finally, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 1.55 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home has less hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facility's next best category grade came in the area of nursing. In that category, we gave this nursing home a grade of B-. When computing our nursing ratings, we weigh both the number of hours nurses spend with residents and the levels of licensure of the nurses. This facility provided just 3 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This is a relatively low total compared to most other nursing homes. Lastly, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as preventing major falls. Despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours per resident, this nursing home actually performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is typically a reliable indicator that a place has quality controls in place. Many falls can be avoided if a nursing home supplies enough nurses aids to assist its patients.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The last category we rated was short-term care. We gave this nursing home a grade of B- in that area. Our short-term care grades are vital for patients requiring rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally utilizes additional skilled nursing services. This means a wide spectrum of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, this nursing home offers both physical therapists and registered nurses. Not all facilities offer both. The last metric we looked at in this category is the number of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. This place was respectable in this metric with 48.1 percent of its residents returning home.
