Facility Inspections

Grade: A

To pair with its favorable overall grade, we awarded this facility an A for the area of inspections. These inspection ratings take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Although this place had some deficiencies on its report, none of them were severe based on CMS' scale. A couple minor dings aren't the end of the world.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

This facility really excelled in the area of long-term care, where we gave it a grade of A-. Only a select group of nursing homes performed more favorably in this category. When nursing homes receive a score in this range in this category it generally means it's well-staffed and is an overall good place to reside on a permanent basis. After we finished assessing the volume of nursing care, we turned to the facility's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia is too frequently a deadly ailment for nursing home patients so we strongly prefer when a facility does not leave its residents vulnerable. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

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+. In determining a nursing home's nursing grade, we assess the quantity of hours nurses are caring for patients as well as the level of skill of those nurses. This nursing home provides 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality-based metrics and this facility excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any facility the state in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can often be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as having a system of turning a resident at least once a day.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

Switching gears to the fourth category, this facility was given a decent short-term care grade. While this was not quite as good as some of its other grades, this is really a middle of the pack score. Our short-term care ratings are arguably more critical for folks needing a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually requires more highly-skilled nursing. This includes not merely nursing services, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Unfortunately, we were not able to locate information on registered nurse or physical therapy staffing for this nursing home. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 5 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most nursing homes, closer to half of their patients are able to return home so this figure is below average.
