Facility Inspections

Grade: A

One of the reasons this ended up being a quality nursing home is it received a very impressive grade in inspections. Inspections ended up being its best category. In that area, we awarded this facility an A. Arguably the most critical factor we look at in computing our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places with better scores in this area typically dodged the most severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. This nursing home was assessed 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be major deficiencies. This tells you that CMS didn't consider any of the deficiencies to pose an imminent risk to resident safety or health. Remember that deficiency-free inspections are rare in this industry.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

We also want to alert you to the fact that this nursing home was awarded an impressive grade of A- in our short-term care category. Our short-term care grades are presumably most meaningful for people requiring rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation typically mandates additional skilled nursing. This means not just nursing, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. We were not able to locate information on registered nurse or physical therapy staffing for this nursing home. The final metric we looked at in this area is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We found that 6.7 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

This facility is also strong in the area of nursing, where it received a grade of B+. It outperformed most nursing homes in this category. Nursing scores are based in large part on levels of nurse staffing. 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 nursing home has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can frequently be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

The next area we graded is long-term care, where this nursing home was given a B. Believe it or not, this turned out to be this facility's least impressive area. A nursing home could be doing a lot worse when it's poorest score still beats out most nursing homes. When nursing homes receive this type of grade in long-term care it is usually a good sign for resident care and suggests that the facility is well-staffed with nurses aids. After considering the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination record. This nursing home vaccinated 99.166664 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is far higher than the majority of nursing homes. Lastly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
