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. These inspection scores take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these issues by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Fortunately, although this nursing home had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G through L. This means that CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

Among its many dominant grades, this facility received first-rate long-term care grade. In fact, it received a score of A in that category. In a long-term care environment, the primary objective is to maintain patients' quality of life and keep them safe. One of the criteria we considered after nursing hours is vaccines. This nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccination to 93.333336 percent of its patients. Lastly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

Adding to its strong resume, this facility also received an excellent nursing score, with a grade of A-. Our nursing grade is based on the facility's nurse staffing levels. We factor in both the levels of skill of those nurses as well as the number of hours spent with residents. This nursing home averages 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed very well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The next category we rated is short-term care, in which this facility was awarded a B-. This actually turned out to be this facility's worst category. This is nevertheless not a bad grade. Our short-term care grade is commonly employed to score a nursing home's rehabilitation services. In order to offer high-end rehabilitation services, facilities generally must offer higher levels of skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other types of therapists. Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last item we looked at in this category is the percentage of residents who eventually returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 4.2 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home. This figure was below average.
