Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

In addition to being a great overall grade, this facility also received A+ health inspections in recent years. Its inspections were virtually flawless. Arguably the most significant factor we look at in calculating our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes with higher grades in this category most likely avoided the most severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. While this place had a few deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. The fact that none of the deficiencies were severe leaves us less concerned with this inspection report.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This facility is also above average in the area of short-term care, where it received a score of B+. It outpaced most nursing homes in this area. Our short-term care scores are based on a facility's quantity of highly-skilled highly skilled professionals. This includes a wide scope of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. Not all facilities employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we considered the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

Another strong feature for this facility is that it received an impressive nursing grade. In that area, we awarded this facility a grade of B. We scrutinized the licensure of nurses at the facility, as well as the quantity of hours those nurses spent with residents, in computing our score in this area. This particular nursing home provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, 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.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The final area we assessed proved to be this nursing home's worst category. Nevertheless, even in its worst category we still awarded it a decent grade of C for our long-term care category. In a long-term care environment, the nursing home's primary goal is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. Once we assessed the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination record. Candidly, we were a bit alarmed this nursing home vaccinated 74.13793 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which happens to be several points below what we expected. Nevertheless, this nursing home keeps its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
