Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

In addition to earning a great overall rating, this facility fared even better in our inspections category which is based on the nursing home's recent government inspection reports. We gave it a grade of A+ for this area, which is one of our highest scores. Inspection scores account for several factors included in a nursing home's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we consider is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with better scores in this area tend to have few severe deficiencies. While this place had some deficiencies on its report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

An additional quality feature for this nursing home is that it was awarded a very positive long-term care score. Indeed, this wound up being its second best category grade. In that category, we gave this nursing home a B+. For long-term care residents, the primary goal is to keep patients healthy and safe. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate residents. We didn't have any complaints about this nursing home's performance in this category.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

This facility is also above average in the area of short-term care, where it was given a grade of B. It outpaced most nursing homes in this category. Short-term care ratings are based in part on the facility's quantity of skilled nursing services. This means a wide scope of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, not to mention other forms of therapy. We weren't able to find registered nurse or physical therapy staffing data for this facility. The final datapoint we considered in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the facility and return home. We found that 7.6 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

The last area we analyzed is nursing, which ended up being this facility's least impressive area. It received an F for this category, which is certainly a bit concerning. Our nursing grade is based on the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. We weigh both the levels of skill of the nurses and the amount of time spent with patients. This facility provided just 0.1 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing grades. This nursing home fared well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.
