Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

The main reason this facility received a decent overall grade is its excellent inspections in recent years. We awarded it one of our better scores in that category, with an A-. This is a notably better score than the place's overall score, which was decent but not in the elite range. Our inspection ratings are based on items located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places that receive favorable grades in this area typically have few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these nursing homes generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. This facility received 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This means that CMS did not deem any of these deficiencies an immediate risk to resident health or safety. A few relatively minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

In addition, we also would like to note that this nursing home was awarded strong short-term care marks this year. We gave them one of our higher grades in this category, with a grade of B+. This turned out to be the facility's second strongest grade. In the category of short-term care, we seek to evaluate measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We assess a facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and various therapists. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not all facilities employs these types of nurses. However, according to the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we looked at the number of residents that ultimately returned home from this facility. We found that 5.8 percent of this nursing home's residents were able to return home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facility's next best category grade came in the area of nursing. In that category, we gave this nursing home a grade of B-. Nursing ratings are primarily associated with the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a low total compared with most facilities. Lastly, we also looked at several nursing quality-based metrics. While this facility got docked a bit for its nursing hours per resident, it actually excelled in some of these quality-based metrics. With less than five percent of its patients experiencing pressure ulcers, it did well in this area. This is often an indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can often be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as by employing a protocol of moving patients more frequently.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The last area we looked at is long-term care. We awarded it a grade of C in this category. This is a perfectly acceptable grade in this category. Our long-term care ratings are more critical for people in need of more conventional services associated with activities of daily living. After we finished assessing the volume of care provided by nurses, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination statistics. Frankly, we were a bit worried that this nursing home vaccinated only 90.378006 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Nevertheless, this place excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
