Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A+ for our inspections rating. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining these inspection scores. One key factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is usually more important than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be relatively minor. While this place had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were major deficiencies 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: B

This nursing home was given a strong long-term care grade as well. We gave it one of our better grades in that category with a grade of B. If you are looking for anything other than rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each facility's long-term care scores. After looking at the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 91.51786 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is a few points lower than we expected but still a decent percentage. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home's next best category was nursing. We awarded it a grade of B- in this category. While this wasn't quite as good as some of its other category grades, this isn't a bad score either. Nursing scores are primarily based on the nursing home's nurse staffing. This place provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This is a relatively low total compared with most facilities. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this place surprisingly excelled in some of the quality measures we assessed. It performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be measures of the quality of nursing care. In some cases, the quality of nursing care is every bit as important as the quantity of hours of care offered.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

Our final category is short-term care, in which we gave this nursing home a C in this area. Short-term care scores are critical for prospective residents looking for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally mandates additional skilled nursing. This means a wide spectrum of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. However, based on the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final item we considered in this area is the percentage of patients who were able to return home from the facility. We found that just 3.4 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
