Facility Inspections

Grade: A

One of the reasons this turned out to be a quality nursing home is that it received an impressive inspection score. In fact, inspections is its best category grade. In that category, we gave it a grade of A. Inspection scores weigh several factors included in a facility's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we consider is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with higher scores in this category tend to have very few severe deficiencies. Although this facility had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were severe 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 truly excelled in the area of long-term care, where we gave it a grade of A-. Few facilities performed better in this area. For residents looking for a permanent residence rather than rehabilitation, long-term care is a very important category. In addition to looking at the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 35.568516 percent of its patients. This is a few points lower than we expected. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

This facility received a very good nursing grade this year as well. It received one of our better scores in that category with a grade of B+. In determining our nursing ratings, we factor in both the number of hours nurses spend with residents and the levels of licensure of those nurses. This nursing home averages 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed very well in the area of 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: C

Moving on to our next area, this nursing home received an acceptable short-term care score. While this isn't as strong as many of its other scores, this is still not a terrible score. Our short-term care scores are presumably more important for folks requiring rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation generally utilizes additional skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes not merely nursing, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not all facilities employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last measure we looked at in this category is the number of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We discovered that just 5.1 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is actually below average.
