Facility Inspections

Grade: A

On top of receiving a strong overall score, this facility also earned first-rate inspections in recent years. We gave them one of our best scores in this area, with an A. Inspection scores weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This nursing home was assessed 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This means that CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies to be an immediate risk to resident safety or health. The fact that the deficiencies were relatively minor made us feel better about this inspection report.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Adding to its profile, this facility also received a grade of B+ for its long-term care rating. This is a well above average grade in this category. Nursing homes that receive this kind of score in this category typically provide consistent 24/7 care to make sure patients are well cared for. One of the statistics we considered on top of nursing hours was vaccinations. This nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccine to 100 percent of its patients. This is a reliable method to avoid unnecessary deaths for the nursing home population. Finally, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facility's third best category was short-term care. In that category, we awarded this facility a grade of B-. With our short-term care grade, we try to create a sound barometer for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we look at a facility's levels of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. However, based on the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we looked at the number of patients that who were able to eventually return home from this nursing home. We found that 4.8 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was quite a bit below the national average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

Turning to our next category, this facility was given an acceptable nursing score of B-. Our nursing score consists of many data points, most of which are tied to quantities of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides only 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This is a somewhat discouraging figure as it is well below average. Lastly, our nursing scores also consider quality-based assessments, such as preventing major falls. Despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours per resident, this place performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is often a good indicator that a nursing home has quality controls in place. Many falls could be avoided if a nursing home provides enough nurses to assist its patients.
