Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

On top of being a first rate nursing home overall, this facility also performed well in our inspections category, where it received an A+. Very few facilities performed as well in this area. Perhaps the most significant factor we look at in computing our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Facilities with higher grades in this area typically avoided the most severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. This place was assessed 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This tells you that CMS did not consider any of these deficiencies to cause an immediate risk to resident safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

Among the reasons we graded this facility so well is that it received a dominant long-term care score. In fact, long-term care ended up being its second most favorable category grade. In that area, we gave this facility a score of A. When facilities receive a score in this range in this category it generally means it's well-staffed and is an overall good place to live on a permanent basis. In addition to assessing the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents. Vaccines are critical to keeping patients out of the hospital. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

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 considers a variety of datapoints. The most important factor is the number of hours nurses spend with patients. This particular nursing home provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This place performed very well when it comes to 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: C

The last area we looked at was short-term care. We gave this facility a decent score in that area, with a C. Even though this wasn't as strong as a few of this facility's other grades, it is still not a bad grade. In the category of short-term care, we seek to qualify indicators of a facility's rehabilitation services. We look at a facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses and various therapists. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we assessed the number of patients that who were able to eventually return home from this nursing home. We found that 3.7 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was quite a bit below the national average.
