Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

We also wanted to point out that this facility earned near flawless government inspections recently. We awarded them an A+ in this area. Our inspection grades account for several factors found on a facility's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we weigh heavily is the number and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with better scores in this area typically have few of these severe deficiencies. Although this place had a few deficiencies on its report, none of them were serious based on CMS' scale. We should point out that deficiency-free inspection reports are rare in this industry.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

To complement its strong performance in other areas, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A+ for our inspections rating. Nursing ratings are largely tied to a facility's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home averages 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed very well in terms of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Additionally, this facility also was given favorable short-term care grades this year. Indeed, we awarded them one of our higher scores in that area, with a grade of B+. In our short-term care assessment, we endeavor to create a valuable gauge for rehabilitation. In this process, we look at a facility's scope of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. Unfortunately, we weren't able to find information about this nursing home's registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. Finally, we looked at the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The next category we assessed was long-term care, in which this nursing home was awarded a grade of B-. This is this facility's least impressive area. This is still not a bad grade. In calculating our long-term care ratings, we assess the personal care offered to a nursing home's residents. On top of assessing the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. Fortunately, this nursing home gave the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents, which is an above average datapoint. This nursing home also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
