Facility Inspections

Grade: A

One of the reasons this turned out to be a quality nursing home is it earned a very impressive grade in inspections. Inspections ended up being its best category. In this area, we awarded this facility an A. Our inspection grades are tied to pieces of information found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes that score well in this area typically have few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these nursing homes should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. While this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were severe based on CMS' scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

We also would like to note the fact that this facility was awarded a top-shelf grade of A in our short-term care category. Our short-term care scores are presumably most meaningful for those in need of rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation generally mandates more highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes not merely nursing services, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. It doesn't appear that this facility submitted information on registered nurse or physical therapist staffing. Finally, we looked at the percentage of residents that ultimately returned home from this nursing home. We found that 7.3 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

In addition, this facility also was awarded favorable long-term care scores in our assessment. In fact, we awarded them one of our more favorable grades in that area, with a score of B+. When facilities receive this kind of grade in this category it is usually a good sign for resident care and suggests that the place is well-staffed with nurses aids. After assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 95.72954 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is higher than the average nursing home. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

The last category we analyzed was nursing. We awarded this facility one of our more favorable grades in this category, with a B. While this wasn't as favorable as a few of this nursing home's other scores, it is nevertheless a perfectly acceptable score. When computing a nursing home's nursing grade, we weigh the quantity of hours nurses spend with residents as well as the levels of training of those nurses. This nursing home averages 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed certain nursing quality measures in computing our nursing grades. These include minimizing residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We view these areas as good measures of the caliber of nursing care offered, since better care tends to reduce these problems.
