Facility Inspections

Grade: A

On top of receiving a strong overall grade, this place also received top notch inspections in recent years. We awarded it one of our higher scores in this category, with an A. Inspection ratings are based on items found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places that receive favorable grades in this category tend to have very few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these places generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. While this facility had a few deficiencies on its report, none were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. We should note that deficiency-free inspections are rare in this industry.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

We also awarded this nursing home a grade of A- for our nursing grade. Our nursing score is largely based on a nursing home's nurse staffing. This nursing home averages 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This facility performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a nursing home has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can often be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

The third area we assessed was long-term care. This nursing home was given a favorable long-term care score, with a B+ in the category. For long-term care residents, the facility's primary goal is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate residents. One of the factors we considered in addition to nursing hours was vaccines. This facility provided the pneumonia vaccination to 78.65854 percent of its residents. While its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we hoped for, at least this place was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.05 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The next category we scored is short-term care, where this facility was awarded a grade of C. Although this is its least impressive category score, this is still not a major area of concern. Short-term care grades are typically used to measure a facility's performance with rehabilitation. In order to have highly graded rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to have higher levels of highly skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other licensed professionals. It doesn't look like this nursing home submitted data regarding its registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. Lastly, we assessed the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 4.3 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most facilities, closer to half of their patients are able to return home so this figure is below average.
