Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

On top of performing well overall, this facility earned a nearly flawless inspection report. As a result, it earned one of our best scores in that category with an A+. Arguably the most important factor we look at in calculating our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes with higher grades in this category typically avoided the most severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. While this place had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. Keep in mind that deficiency-free inspections are uncommon in the industry.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A

This nursing home performed well in our nursing category. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A for that category, which is one of our highest scores. Our nursing score assesses the nursing home's nurse staffing levels. We consider both the levels of skill of those nurses and the amount of time spent with residents. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This place performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a facility has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can generally be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

The third area we graded is short-term care. This facility was given an impressive short-term care score, with a grade of B in the area. With our short-term care score, we attempt to craft a meaningful barometer for rehabilitation services. In this process, we assess a facility's offerings of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. However, according to the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last measure we assessed in this area is the number of residents that ultimately returned home from the nursing home. We found that 5 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The final area we graded was long-term care, in which this nursing home was awarded a C. This turned out to be this facility's worst category. This is nevertheless nothing to be ashamed of. Long-term care grades are commonly used to assess a nursing home's performance as a traditional convalescent home, as opposed to focusing on the skilled nursing services offered by a skilled nursing facility. After considering the volume of nursing care, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination data. We were optimistic to discover that this facility vaccinated 99.0991 percent of its residents for pneumonia. This facility keeps its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0.03 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
