Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

In addition to being a respectable facility overall, this place really excelled in the category of inspections, where it received an A-. Few facilities performed better in this category. Inspection scores weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these items by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Although this nursing home had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. We should point out that deficiency-free inspection reports are rare in the industry.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This nursing home also was awarded a strong score in our short-term care category. We awarded this facility an above average grade of B+ in this area. Short-term care ratings are based in part on a facility's quantity of skilled nursing services. This means a broad scope of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, not to mention other types of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last measure we considered in this area is the percentage of patients who were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that 5.3 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

An additional reason we rated this nursing home so highly is that it earned an A+ nursing score. This is as good as it gets in this category. In calculating a facility's nursing grade, we assess the amount of time nurses are with patients and the level of licensure of the nurses. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed very well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Switching gears to our final area, we gave this facility a grade of D for the area of long-term care. This is the nursing home's worst category grade. Naturally, this category hurt the facility's overall profile to a certain degree. If you are looking for anything other than rehabilitation, you should take a close look at long-term care ratings. One of the criteria we considered after nurse's aid hours is vaccinations. Thankfully, this nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccine to 100 percent of its patients. Surprisingly, this place also fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had just 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Sadly, a few of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.
