Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

To go along with its strong overall grade, we gave this place an A+ for inspections. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing these inspection ratings. One of those factors is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more important than the number of deficiencies, as some of these end up being quite insignificant. Although this nursing home had some deficiencies on its report, none of them were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

We also awarded this facility a score of A- for our long-term care grade. Nursing homes that do well in this category tend to be well-staffed and offer extensive hands on care to patients. On top of considering the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients, which is far higher than the vast majority of nursing homes. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

Turning to our next area, this facility also received a score of B for its short-term care rating. This is a well above average score in this category. In our short-term care category, we strive to craft a sound barometer for rehabilitation. In doing so, we analyze the nursing home's offerings of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we considered the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 5.7 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

The last area we assessed ended up being this nursing home's poorest category. Nevertheless, even in its worst category we still awarded it an acceptable grade of B- for our nursing category. Nursing grades are tied to quality and quantity of nursing care. This particular nursing home provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This figure is far below average. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility excelled in some of the quality measures we looked at. It scored well in terms of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care. In many cases, the quality of nursing care is as important as the quantity of hours of care offered.
