Facility Inspections

Grade: A

We also would like to emphasize the fact that this facility has earned nearly flawless health inspections in recent years. We awarded them an impressive grade of A in this category. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating these inspection grades. One key factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some can be quite minor. While this nursing home had some minor dings on its report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you CMS didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

Among its many impressive scores, this nursing home received first-rate short-term care grade. In fact, it received a grade of A in that category. With our short-term care assessment, we attempt to craft a fair gauge for rehabilitation. In doing so, we assess a nursing home's scope of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last datapoint we assessed in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We found that 6.1 percent of this nursing home's patients were able to return home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This nursing home was awarded a favorable long-term care grade as well. We awarded it one of our better grades in that area with a grade of B+. When facilities receive this type of score in this category it is typically a good sign for patient care and indicates that the facility is well-staffed with nurses aids. On top of looking at the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home provided the vaccine to 96.51568 percent of its patients, which is higher than the vast majority of nursing homes. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

The last area we scored is nursing, where this facility was given a B-. Although this is its lowest category score, this is nevertheless not the end of the world. When computing our nursing ratings, we analyze both the number of hours nurses spend with residents and the skill levels of the nurses. This facility provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This is a lower figure than we are used to seeing. Finally, despite not having the highest total nursing hours per resident, this nursing home performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is typically a reliable indicator that a nursing home has sufficient quality controls in place.
