Facility Inspections

Grade: A

To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A for our inspections rating. Perhaps the most important factor we consider in determining our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. Places with better scores in this category most likely avoided the more severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. While this nursing home had some 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 did not 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 inspections are uncommon in this industry.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This nursing home was awarded a favorable long-term care grade as well. We awarded it one of our better grades in that category with a score of B+. When facilities receive a grade in this range in long-term care it typically means it has plenty of staff and is a quality place to live on a permanent basis. After considering the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is much higher than most nursing homes. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

Another one of this facility's impressive category grades came in the area of nursing care. We awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with a grade of B. Our nursing grade includes many subcategories, however, the paramount one is the quantity of nurse hours per patient per week. This facility 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 nursing home has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can many times be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

Turning to the final area, this facility was awarded a decent short-term care rating. While this isn't quite as elite as a few of its other scores, this is still not a terrible score. In calculating our short-term care ratings, we analyze the facility's levels of highly skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists respiratory therapists and other highly skilled individuals. This score is generally a meaningful measure of the nursing home's rehabilitation services. It does not appear that this nursing home submitted registered nurse or physical therapist staffing data. Finally, we considered the percentage of patients who ultimately were able to return home from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was actually well below the national average.
