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. These inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these factors by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this facility had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. Keep in mind that deficiency-free inspections are rare in this industry.

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+. In computing our nursing grades, we factor in both nursing hours and the levels of licensure of those nurses. This nursing home provides 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality measures and this place excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any nursing home the country in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can frequently be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as by employing a system of moving residents at least once a day.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This nursing home was given a strong short-term care score as well. We awarded it one of our higher scores in that area with a grade of B+. Our short-term care scores are probably more critical for folks in need of a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically requires additional highly-skilled nursing services. This includes not just nursing services, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. Unfortunately, it doesn't appear that this nursing home submitted information on registered nurse or physical therapist staffing. Finally, we considered the number of residents who ultimately returned home from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The next area we graded ended up being this nursing home's weakest category. However, even in its worst category we still gave it a decent grade of C for our long-term care category. In determining our long-term care ratings, we assess the personal care offered to the facility's residents. In addition to assessing the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home provided the vaccine to 89.655174 percent of its residents. This is multiple points below what we expected. Fortunately, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
