Facility Inspections

Grade: A

We also wanted to emphasize the fact that this facility has received nearly flawless inspections recently. We awarded them an A in this area. Inspection ratings weigh several factors included in a facility's inspection report. One key criteria we consider is the number and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with better scores in this category generally have very few of these severe deficiencies. This nursing home was hit with 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered severe. This means that CMS did not consider any of these deficiencies to cause an immediate threat to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

Adding to its strong resume, this facility also received an excellent nursing score, with a grade of A-. Nursing ratings are mostly associated with a nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This facility provided 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This place performed very well in terms of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

Turning our third category, this nursing home was awarded first-rate long-term care grade. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A- in that category. In a long-term care environment, the primary goal is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. One of the criteria we considered in addition to nursing hours is vaccines. This facility provided the pneumonia vaccine to 44.594597 percent of its patients. Although its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we had hoped, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

Turning to our last category, this nursing home was awarded a decent short-term care grade. Although this isn't quite as strong as some of its other category grades, this is truly not the end of the world. Our short-term care ratings are presumably most meaningful for those in need of a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually utilizes higher levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means not just nursing services, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final datapoint we assessed in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that just 5.3 percent of this facility's residents returned home. Unfortunately, this was below the national average.
