Facility Inspections

Grade: A

In addition to receiving a great overall score, this nursing home also received first-rate inspections in recent years. We gave it one of our higher grades in this area, with an A. Inspection scores weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these items by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. We should point out that deficiency-free inspections are uncommon in the industry.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

Another strong feature for this facility is that it was awarded an impressive long-term care score. Indeed, this ended up being its second best category score. In that category, we gave this nursing home a grade of B. When nursing homes receive a grade in this range in this category it generally means it's well-staffed and is a quality place to live on a permanent basis. On top of considering the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 98.71134 percent of its residents, which is very impressive. Pneumonia sadly can be a life threatening health condition for nursing home residents so we prefer when a nursing home does not leave its residents vulnerable. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

This facility received a very good nursing grade this year as well. It received one of our better scores in that category with a grade of B. The nursing rating is based on a variety of datapoints. The most heavily weighted variable is the quantity of hours nurses spend with residents. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed very well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

Turning to the final area, this nursing home was awarded a highly favorable short-term care score. This nursing home didn't turn out to have any weak categories. Our short-term care scores are thought to be most meaningful for people needing rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation usually utilizes higher levels of skilled nursing services. This includes not merely nursing, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Unfortunately, we weren't able to locate information about this nursing home's registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. The last datapoint we looked at in this area is the number of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We found that 5.1 percent of this nursing home's patients were able to return home.
