Facility Inspections

Grade: A

To go along with a strong overall grade, we gave this facility a grade of A for inspections. Inspection grades 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. While this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its report, none were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

Adding to its top-shelf assessments in other areas, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A for its long-term care grade. For patients in need of a permanent place to live as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care grades are an important measure. After considering the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination records. This facility vaccinated 93.60465 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which happens to be a bit less than we were hoping for but still a respectable percentage. Lastly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A

Among its many impressive grades, this facility received an excellent nursing grade. In fact, we gave it a grade of A in that category. When computing a nursing home's nursing grade, we weigh the number of hours nurses spend with patients as well as the skill levels of the nurses. This nursing home averages 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed very well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

The fourth category we analyzed was short-term care, where this facility was given a grade of A. This completed a very favorable report card. Not many facilities earned an A- or higher in all four categories. In the category of short-term care, we seek to assess indicators of a facility's rehabilitation services. We assess the facility's skilled nursing services, including the ones performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we considered the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 5.4 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
