Facility Inspections

Grade: A

On top of performing well in its overall grade, this nursing home performed at an even higher level in the area of inspections. In fact, it received a nearly flawless inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our highest grades in that category with a score of A. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining our inspection ratings. One key factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some can be relatively minor. While this facility had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. A couple relatively minor dings aren't necessarily something to panic about.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

This facility really excelled in the area of short-term care, where we gave it a grade of A. Only a select group of facilities performed more favorably in this category. Short-term care grades are meaningful for patients seeking rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically utilizes additional highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes a vast spectrum of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final metric we considered in this category is the number of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We found that 6.1 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facility's next best category was its nursing grade, where it received a grade of B-. While this didn't quite match its scores in some of the categories discussed above, this is still a decent score. Nursing scores are based largely on levels of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides only 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This is a somewhat concerning figure as it is well below the national average. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this nursing home surprisingly fared better in some of the quality-based metrics we looked at. It performed well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

Turning to our fourth category, this facility was awarded a decent long-term care grade. Even though this was not quite as strong as some of its other scores, this is really nothing to be ashamed of. In forming our long-term care scores, we quantify the nursing home's ability to maintain its permanent residents' health and quality of life. One of the statistics we considered in addition to nursing hours is vaccines. Thankfully, this facility provided the pneumonia vaccine to 100 percent of its patients. This place was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
