Facility Inspections

Grade: A

On top of being a quality facility overall, this place especially excelled in our inspections category, where it received an A. Not many facilities fared better in that category. Inspection ratings weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these issues by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this facility had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G through L. This means that CMS didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

Among this facility's other strengths is its high-end long-term care grade. It received one of our better grades in that category, with a score of A. When facilities receive this type of grade in this category it is a good sign for patient care and suggests that the nursing home is well-staffed with nurses and aids. Once we looked at the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination records. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Vaccines are critical to keeping patients out of the hospital. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facility's third highest area was its short-term care score, where it received a grade of B-. In our short-term care category, we attempt to craft a sound barometer for rehabilitation services. In this process, we look at a facility's levels of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. Unfortunately, it doesn't appear that this nursing home provided information about its staffing of registered nurses or physical therapists. The final statistic we assessed in this category is the percentage of patients who ultimately were able to return home from the facility. We found that just 5.7 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

Turning to our final category, this facility received a respectable nursing rating. Although this wasn't as dominant as some of its other category grades, this is really not the end of the world. We scrutinized the skill-level of nurses employed by the nursing home, in addition to the quantity of hours those nurses were with residents, in determining our grade in this area. This nursing home averages just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Lastly, although this place got docked a bit for nursing hours per resident, it excelled in a few of our quality-based measures. With fewer than five percent of its patients suffering from pressure ulcers, it performed very well in this subcategory.
