Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

On top of earning a great overall rating, this nursing home fared even better in the area of inspections which is associated with the facility's recent inspections. In fact, we gave it an A+ for that area, which is one of our best grades. These inspection ratings weigh several factors, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these items by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Although this nursing home had some deficiencies on its report, none of them were major deficiencies 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

Another quality feature for this facility is that it was awarded an above average long-term care score. In fact, this proved to be its second best category score. In that category, we gave this facility a B+. Nursing homes that excel in long-term care tend to provide patients with better supervision and stay on top of routine medical care. After considering the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination records. This nursing home vaccinated 98.422714 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is much higher than the average nursing home. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home's third most favorable category is short-term care. We gave it a B- in this area. This is basically a middle of the pack grade in this area. In computing these short-term care scores, we analyze the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our purpose is to formulate a measure for comparing the rehabilitation services of different facilities. Unfortunately, we were not able to track down information about this nursing home's registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 5.5 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most facilities, closer to half of their residents are able to return home so this figure is below average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

Moving on to the fourth area, this facility was given an acceptable nursing score of C. Our nursing grade assesses the facility's level of nurse staffing. We factor in both the levels of skill of those nurses and the number of hours spent with patients. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this place excelled in some of the quality-based metrics we assessed. It performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.
