Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

This facility's best category grade came in the area of health inspections. In this category, we gave this nursing home a B+. It outperformed most nursing homes in this category. These inspection scores weigh several factors, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This facility received 9 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This means that CMS did not deem any of these deficiencies to cause an imminent risk to resident safety or health. We should point out that deficiency-free inspections are rare in this industry.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

This facility also excelled in the area of nursing, where it received an B. Nursing grades are primarily based on a nursing home's nurse staffing. This nursing home averages 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality-based metrics and this facility excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any facility the state in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can typically be avoided by providing better nursing care, such as by having a policy of moving patients more frequently.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

This facility also was given an impressive long-term care grade. In fact, we awarded them a B in this category, which is one of our better. Facilities that receive this kind of score in long-term care typically provide consistent 24/7 care to make sure residents are kept in good health. In addition to looking at the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients. Vaccines are critical to keeping patients out of the hospital. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The final area we rated is short-term care. We awarded it a C in that category. This is a fair grade in this area. In computing our short-term care scores, we analyze the facility's levels of skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other licensed professionals. This score is more often than not a useful assessment of the nursing home's rehabilitation. Unfortunately, it does not appear that this facility submitted registered nurse or physical therapist staffing data. Lastly, we assessed the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most nursing homes, closer to half of their patients are able to return home so this figure is below average.
