Facility Inspections

Grade: A

This nursing home earned a solid overall grade as described above, but we really wanted to point out its excellent inspection reports in recent years. We gave them an impressive grade of A in this category. Our inspection grades are based on several items located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities that score well in this area have few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these facilities generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. This place was hit with 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This tells you that CMS did not deem any of these deficiencies to cause an imminent risk to patient safety or health. The fact that none of the deficiencies were severe leaves us less concerned with this inspection report.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

One of the other reasons we graded this facility so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing grade. In that area, we awarded this facility an B+. The nursing score is based on many factors, but the most important consideration is the quantity of nurse hours spent with patients. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This facility performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a facility has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can generally be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

In addition, we also wanted to draw your attention to the fact that this nursing home was awarded positive long-term care marks this year. We awarded them one of our higher grades in that category, with a grade of B. Facilities that receive this kind of score in long-term care tend to provide consistent 24/7 care to make sure patients are well cared for. On top of assessing the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients, which is far higher than most nursing homes. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.03 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

This nursing home's weakest category is short-term care, which is the final area we assessed. In this category, we gave this nursing home a D. Our short-term care grade is typically employed to grade a facility's performance with rehabilitation. To provide good rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must offer higher levels of skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other licensed professionals. In this nursing home's case, it looks like it offered fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than a typical facility. Finally, we considered the number of patients who were able to return home from this facility. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 3.5 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.
