Facility Inspections

Grade: A

The primary reason this facility received a decent overall grade is its impeccable health inspections in recent years. We awarded it one of our better grades in that area, with an A. This is a much better grade than the place's overall grade, which was decent but certainly not elite. Inspection ratings are tied to many pieces of information located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places that score well in this area tend to have few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these places generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. Although this place had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. Remember that deficiency-free inspections are rare in the industry.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

This facility also received high marks in the area of short-term care, with first-rate grade of A- in this category. Our short-term care ratings are meaningful for people in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally requires more skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means a vast spectrum of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. One of this nursing home's strengths is registered nurse hours. We found that it provides more care from registered nurses to its residents than most nursing homes. Lastly, we looked at the number of patients that returned home from this facility. We found that it performed as well as just about any facility in this area with 58.7 percent of its residents returning home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

An additional reason we rated this nursing home so highly is that it received an A+ nursing score. When computing our nursing scores, we look at both nursing hours and the training levels of the nurses. This nursing home provides an impressive 3.3 hours of nursing care per patient daily. Out of this total, more than one fourth of these hours were provided by registered nurses, which is among the most highly skilled levels of nurses. We apply more weight to hours worked by skilled nurses in calculating our nursing grades. Lastly, we also factored a few quality measures into our nursing grades. This nursing home was relatively weak in two of the major areas we focus on, with below average scores for minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. These areas are generally reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care provided.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The next category we rated is long-term care. It received an abysmal F in this category, which is an abysmal grade. This is certainly a significant disappointment. Nursing homes that do not fare well in long-term care often don't provide as much nursing care and also may be struggling in some of the areas of routine medical care we assessed. In addition to considering the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home provided the vaccine to 93.37749 percent of its residents. This is a few points below what we were hoping for but still a respectable percentage. Surprisingly, this nursing home was actually decent at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.65 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This is its best score in this category.
