Facility Inspections

Grade: A

On top of receiving a strong overall grade, this facility also earned first-rate health inspections in recent years. We gave them one of our better grades in that area, with an A. Inspection scores account for several factors found on a nursing home's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we weigh heavily is the number and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with better grades in this area usually have few severe deficiencies. While this place had a few deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. We should point out that deficiency-free inspection reports are rare in this industry.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

Among its many impressive grades, this facility received an excellent nursing rating. We gave it an B+ in that area. We weighed the skill-level of nurses working for the facility, in addition to the number of hours the nurses were with patients, in computing our score in this area. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also assessed 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.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This facility also was awarded an impressive short-term care grade. Indeed, we awarded it an above average grade of B+ in this category. Short-term care ratings are important for residents needing rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually utilizes higher levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means a broad scope of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last datapoint we looked at in this area is the number of patients who were able to leave the facility and return home. We discovered that 5.8 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

Turning to the next area, this nursing home was awarded an acceptable long-term care score of C. For prospective residents seeking a permanent place to live rather than rehabilitation, long-term care grades are a key measure. After considering the volume of care provided by nurses, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination records. This nursing home vaccinated 93.06358 percent of its patients for pneumonia. Nevertheless, this nursing home excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
