Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

To go along with its strong overall performance, we awarded this facility a grade of A- for the area of inspections. Inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can find more information about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this facility had a few deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were serious based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Contributing to its profile, this nursing home also earned a score of B+ for its long-term care rating. This is a well above average grade in this area. In a long-term care environment, the facility's primary goal is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. Once we assessed the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This facility vaccinated 19.402985 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is somewhat lower than we anticipated but still a decent figure. While its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we had hoped, we were pleased to find place was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

Turning to the category of nursing care, this facility didn't perform quite as well in this area as some of the categories discussed above. Nevertheless, a grade of B- in this category is by no means a bad score. In calculating a nursing home's nursing score, we weigh the quantity of hours nurses are with patients as well as the levels of training of the nurses. This nursing home averages just 0.2 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this place excelled in some of the quality measures we looked at. It scored well in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The next category we assessed is short-term care. We gave it a grade of B- in that category. This is basically a middle of the road grade in this area. Our short-term care grade is typically used to assess a facility's performance with rehabilitation. In order to have highly graded rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to provide better levels of highly skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other licensed professionals. It does not look like this nursing home submitted information about its staffing of registered nurses or physical therapists. The final datapoint we looked at in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is below average.
