Facility Inspections

Grade: A

To pair with its strong overall score, we gave this place an A for the area of inspections. Our inspection grades are based on several items located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities that excel in this area have very few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these nursing homes should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. While this place had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were serious based on CMS' scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

This nursing home performed well in the category of long-term care. As a result, we gave it a score of A- for that area, which turns out to be one of our better scores. For long-term care residents, the nursing home's primary objective is to keep patients healthy and safe. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate residents. On top of assessing the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 91.53439 percent of its patients, which is a few points lower than we anticipated. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facility's next best category was its nursing grade, where it received a grade of B-. While this didn't quite match its scores in some of the categories discussed above, this is still a decent score. In calculating our nursing scores, we factor in both staffing levels and the levels of licensure of those nurses. This facility provides only 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is a somewhat alarming figure as it is well below the national average. Finally, while this nursing home got docked a bit for nursing hours, it excelled in some of our quality metrics. With less than five percent of its patients suffering from pressure ulcers, it fared very well in this metric.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Switching gears to the final area, we gave this nursing home a D for short-term care. This was the nursing home's least impressive category score. Naturally, this category hurt the nursing home's overall grade to a certain degree. In calculating our short-term care ratings, we assess a facility's levels of skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists respiratory therapists and other licensed professionals. This category is generally a useful measure of the facility's ability to rehabilitate patients. Unfortunately, we discovered that this place offered fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most facilities. Finally, we assessed the percentage of residents that ultimately returned home from this nursing home. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 4 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.
