Facility Inspections

Grade: A

On top of receiving a great overall grade, this facility also earned top notch government inspections in recent years. We awarded it one of our higher scores in that category, with a grade of A. Perhaps the most important factor we consider in determining our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Facilities with higher scores in this area most likely dodged the most severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. While this facility had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G through L. This tells you that CMS did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. We should note that deficiency-free inspections are rare in this industry.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

Adding to its profile, this facility also earned a grade of B+ for its nursing rating. This is a well above average score in this category. Our nursing rating consists of a handful of datapoints, however, the paramount one is the level of nurse hours per patient per week. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed very well when it comes to 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: B-plus

This facility is also strong in the area of long-term care, where it received a score of B+. It performed better than most facilities in this area. For residents seeking a permanent place to live rather than skilled nursing, long-term care is a very important category. On top of considering the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 74.4382 percent of its residents, which is slightly lower than we were hoping for. 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 less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The last area we looked at is short-term care. We gave it a grade of C in this category. This is basically a middle of the road grade in this category. In the category of short-term care, we attempt to assess indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We assess a facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses and various therapists. It does not look like this nursing home submitted information on registered nurse or physical therapist staffing. The last statistic we looked at in this category is the percentage of patients that were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that just 4.9 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
