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-plus

We also awarded this nursing home a grade of A+ for its nursing grade. Nursing ratings are largely tied to a facility's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home averages 0.4 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: A-minus

We also wanted to draw your attention to the fact that this nursing home received an impressive score of A- in our short-term care category. With our short-term care grade, we strive to forge a valuable gauge for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we look at the nursing home's levels of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all facilities employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we assessed the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The next category we rated was long-term care. This nursing home received a better than average long-term care grade in our assessment, with a grade of B-. Even though this is not quite as dominant as a few of its other grades, this is still a respectable score in that area. In our long-term care score, we focus on the amount of care offered by a nursing home, along with a few qualitative measures. Once we looked at the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is better than the majority of nursing homes. Lastly, this facility was also able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
