Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

To pair with a strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home an A+ for our inspections rating. Inspection scores take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these factors by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Although this place had a few deficiencies on its report, none of them were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. A few relatively minor dings are not something to panic about.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

We also wanted to draw your attention to the fact that this facility fared very well in our short-term care category. We awarded them a dominant grade of A+ in this area. Short-term care grades are crucial for patients in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically mandates higher levels of highly-skilled nursing services. This includes a broad scope of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. However, according to the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we looked at the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 6.1 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A

This facility also excelled in the area of nursing, where it received a grade of A. Few nursing homes performed better in this area. In computing a facility's nursing score, we look at the number of hours nurses are caring for patients and the level of licensure of those nurses. This particular nursing home provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This place performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a facility has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can often be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

The final area we graded turned out to be this facility's poorest category. However, even its worst category would actually be a strength for many facilities. In fact, we gave it a favorable grade of B for our long-term care category. Facilities that do well in long-term care tend to provide patients with more supervision and stay on top of routine medical care. After we finished looking at the volume of nursing care, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 98.206276 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia is too frequently a deadly illness for nursing home patients so we strongly prefer when a nursing home does not leave this to chance. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
