Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

Part of the reason this facility performed well overall is that it excelled in the category of inspections, with a B+ in that area. It outperformed most nursing homes in this category. Our inspection scores are based on many pieces of information found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes that receive favorable grades in this area have very few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these nursing homes generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. Although this facility had a few deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were serious based on CMS' scale. The fact that none of the deficiencies were severe made us feel better about this inspection report.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

This facility is also strong in the area of nursing, where it received a grade of B. It outperformed most nursing homes in this category. In computing our nursing ratings, we factor in both nursing hours and the levels of licensure of those nurses. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home 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.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

In addition, this facility also was awarded favorable long-term care scores in our assessment. In fact, we awarded it one of our better grades in that category, with a grade of B. Nursing homes that excel in this category tend to provide patients with more supervision and stay on top of routine healthcare services. Once we finished looking at the volume of nursing care, we then looked at the facility's vaccination statistics. This facility vaccinated 98.50107 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia tragically can be a dangerous condition for nursing home patients so we strongly prefer when a facility doesn't roll the dice on this issue. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

The next category we looked at was short-term care. We gave this nursing home one of our higher grades in that area, with a B. This facility ended up being strong in each category we looked at. Our short-term care ratings are presumably more critical for those in need of rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation usually utilizes more highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means not only nursing services, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final measure we looked at in this area is the percentage of patients who returned home from the facility. We found that 4.7 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.
