Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

In addition to being a great overall grade, this facility also received A+ health inspections in recent years. Its inspections were virtually flawless. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining our inspection grades. One critical factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more important than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies end up being relatively minor. This nursing home was assessed 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This indicates that CMS didn't deem any of these deficiencies an immediate risk to patient safety or health. The fact that none of the deficiencies were severe leaves us less concerned with this inspection report.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

We also would like to emphasize the fact that this facility was given an elite score of A in our short-term care category. Our short-term care grades are critical for patients in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually requires more highly-skilled nursing. This includes a wide range of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. We were not able to find information about this nursing home's registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home, which as an area this facility performed much more favorably. We found that it outperformed the vast majority of nursing homes with 65.1 percent of its patients returning home. This is a significantly higher rate than most facilities.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

We also wanted to emphasize the fact that this facility received an impressive grade of A- in our nursing category. Our nursing grade is largely tied to a facility's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This place performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a nursing home has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can many times be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The last category we looked at is long-term care, in which this nursing home was given a C. This ended up being this nursing home's worst area. This is nevertheless not a poor grade. In the area of long-term care, we focus more on the quantity of care offered by a nursing home, as opposed to more sophisticated services. One of the criteria we considered in addition to nurse's aid hours is vaccinations. Thankfully, this facility provided the pneumonia vaccine to 100 percent of its residents. Lastly, this nursing home was also able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
