Facility Inspections

Grade: A

In addition to performing well in its overall grade, this facility performed at an even higher level in the area of inspections. In fact, it received a nearly flawless inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our highest grades in that category with a score of A. Inspection scores are based on several datapoints found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities that excel in this area typically have very few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these places generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. While this place had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none were severe 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: A-minus

One of the other reasons we graded this nursing home so well is that it received a very impressive long-term care grade. Indeed, long-term care turned out to be its second most impressive category score. In that category, we gave this nursing home a score of A-. Nursing homes that excel in this category typically are well-staffed and offer extensive hands on care to patients. One of the statistics we considered in addition to nursing hours is vaccines. This facility administered the pneumonia vaccine to 100 percent of its patients. This is a great way to avoid unnecessary deaths for the senior population. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

The next highest grade we gave this nursing home came in the category of nursing, where we gave it a grade of B-. This wasn't quite as good as some of its other scores, but a grade in this range is not the end of the world. The nursing grade assesses a handful of factors, most of which are based on quantities of nurse staffing. This nursing home averages just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility surprisingly excelled in some of the quality measures we looked at. In fact, it performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

This facility's weakest category is short-term care, which is the last category we scored. For this category, we gave this facility a grade of just D. Our short-term care ratings are meaningful for patients looking for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally requires higher levels of highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes a broad scope of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other types of therapy. In this nursing home's case, we found that it offers fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than a typical facility. The final measure we considered in this category is the number 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 well below average. The combination of these poor metrics was damning for this nursing home's short-term care score.
