Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A+ for our inspections rating. Inspection grades are based on several datapoints located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities that excel in this category typically have very few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these places generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. Although this facility had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. A couple relatively minor dings are not necessarily something to panic about.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

Among this nursing home's other achievements is its elite short-term care grade. It received one of our best grades in that area, with a score of A-. Our short-term care ratings are thought to be more meaningful for patients requiring rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation typically mandates higher levels of skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means not just nursing, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last metric we assessed in this area is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that 5.8 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

This facilities third best area was long-term care. We gave it a grade of C in this category. This is essentially a slightly below average grade in this area. In the area of long-term care, we weigh the quantity of care offered by a nursing home, as opposed to more sophisticated services. One of the datapoints we considered in addition to nursing hours was vaccines. Thankfully, this facility provided the pneumonia vaccination to 95.454544 percent of its residents. Finally, this nursing home was also able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.03 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

Turning to our fourth category, we gave this nursing home a D in nursing. This is the nursing home's worst category grade. Of course, this category pulled down the nursing home's overall grade to some degree. In determining a facility's nursing rating, we consider the amount of time nurses are caring for patients and the level of licensure of the nurses. With only 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident each day, this place's nurse staffing levels were quite a bit below the national average. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing ratings. This facility fared well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care.
