Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

This nursing home received a solid overall grade as described above, but we really wanted to emphasize its excellent government inspections in recent years. We awarded them an impressive grade of A- in this category. These inspection scores weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this nursing home had a few minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones labeled as categories G through L. This tells you that CMS didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. We should point out that deficiency-free inspection reports are rare in this industry.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

One of the other reasons we rated this nursing home so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing score. Nursing proved to be its second best category grade. In that area, we gave this facility an B+. Our nursing score weighs several datapoints. The most heavily weighted one is the number of hours nurses spent with residents. This facility provided 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality measures and this place 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 prevented by offering better nursing care, such as employing a policy of turning a patient even once per day.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The third area we assessed was long-term care, where this facility was awarded a grade of B- in this area. In a long-term care environment, the primary goal is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate residents. After we finished looking at the volume of care provided by nurses, we turned to the facility's vaccination records. We were a bit worried that this nursing home vaccinated only 40.999996 percent of its patients against pneumonia. On a more positive note, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

This nursing home's least impressive category was short-term care, which is the last area we scored. For this area, we gave this nursing home a grade of D. In computing our short-term care scores, we analyze a nursing home's levels of skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other highly trained professionals. This score is typically a fair measure of a facility's rehabilitation. Unfortunately, this nursing home was below average in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its residents based on the measures we assessed. Finally, we assessed the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that just 2 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
