Facility Inspections

Grade: A

With an overall grade this high, it should come as no surprise that this nursing home performed well in inspections, where it received an A. Arguably the most important factor we look at in calculating our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Places with better scores in this area typically dodged the more severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. Although this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were serious based on CMS' scale. We should point out that deficiency-free inspection reports are rare in this industry.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

This facility also was strong in the category of short-term care, where we awarded it a score of A-. Very few facilities performed better in this area. In determining our short-term care scores, we quantify the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. Our purpose is to formulate a barometer for sizing up the rehabilitation services of various nursing homes. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we considered the percentage of residents who ultimately returned home from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

This facility also excelled in the area of nursing, where it received a grade of A-. Few nursing homes performed better in this area. The nursing grade is based on quite a few factors, but the most important one is the number of nurse hours spent with patients. This nursing home averages 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This place performed very well when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

Moving on to our final area, this nursing home was awarded an acceptable long-term care grade. Although this is not as dominant as several of its other category grades, this is truly not a terrible score. In calculating these long-term care grades, we quantify the nursing home's ability to maintain its permanent residents' health and quality of life. After assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then looked at the facility's vaccination statistics. This facility vaccinated 97.132614 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is higher than the vast majority of nursing homes. This place keeps its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
