Facility Inspections

Grade: A

In addition to earning a strong overall score, this facility also earned excellent government inspections in recent years. We gave it one of our highest grades in that category, with an A. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing our inspection ratings. One critical factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these are quite minor. This nursing home was hit with 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This indicates that CMS didn't consider any of the deficiencies to create an imminent 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-minus

We also want to draw your attention to the fact that this facility was awarded an impressive grade of A- in our long-term care area. Nursing homes that do well in this category typically are well-staffed and offer extensive hands on care to patients. After we finished assessing the amount of nursing care, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is very impressive. Pneumonia tragically can be a deadly condition for nursing home patients so we prefer when a nursing home doesn't leave this to chance. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

This facility also was awarded a strong short-term care grade. This actually is this nursing home's third best category score. In that category, this facility received a score of A-. Our short-term care scores are thought to be most important for residents requiring a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically requires additional highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes not only nursing, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last datapoint we assessed in this category is the percentage of residents that ultimately were able to return home from the facility. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

In the final category, we awarded this nursing home a A for our nursing score. This wrapped up a very impressive report card. Our nursing score includes many subcategories, but the most important consideration is the level of nurse hours spent with patients. This particular nursing home provided 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This facility 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.
