Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

To pair with its strong overall grade, this facility earned a grade of B+ for its short-term care rating. This is a well above average score in this category. Short-term care scores are important for residents in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically mandates additional highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means a broad spectrum of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Unfortunately, it does not look like this nursing home submitted information on registered nurse or physical therapist staffing. The last datapoint we assessed in this area is the number of patients that returned home from the nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This facility also was awarded a strong long-term care score. Indeed, we awarded it an above average score of B+ in this category. Nursing homes that excel in this category typically provide residents with better supervision and stay on top of routine healthcare services. In addition to looking at the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients, which is very impressive. Pneumonia tragically can be a life or death health condition for nursing home residents so we prefer when a facility doesn't leave this to chance. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

Adding to its profile, this facility also earned a grade of B+ for its nursing rating. This is a well above average score in this category. When computing our nursing scores, we look at both nursing hours and the training levels of the nurses. This particular nursing home provided 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed very well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Facility Inspections

Grade: C

Finally, turning to our inspection category, we gave this facility a C. Our inspection rating is based on the facility's inspection reports. While this is not a bad score, it is this facility's weakest area. Our inspection grades account for several factors found on a facility's inspection report. One key criteria we rely on is the number and severity of deficiencies. This facility was hit with 4 deficiencies on its government inspection report, but fortunately none were in categories G through L. This tells you CMS didn't deem any of the deficiencies to pose an imminent risk to resident health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
