Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

In addition to receiving a strong overall rating, this facility also received an A+ inspection score. This is based on its recent government inspections. An A+ in this area is one of the best complements we can offer a facility. Inspection scores weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Fortunately, although this nursing home had some minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are found in categories G through L. This means CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A

One of the other reasons we graded this facility so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing score. In that category, we gave this nursing home an A. In determining a facility's nursing grade, we look at the quantity of hours nurses are seeing patients and the skill levels of the nurses. This facility provided 4.9 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is an impressive statistic which typically corresponds with higher quality care. Finally, this nursing home also performed well in several of the quality measures we looked at. In terms of the number of its patients sustaining falls which lead to serious injury, this facility performed as well as any facility in the state.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

Contributing to its first-rate assessment, this facility also was given a dominant long-term care grade, with a grade of A. Nursing homes that do well in this category tend to provide residents with better supervision and stay on top of routine healthcare services. One of the criteria we considered in addition to this facility's quality nursing hours was vaccinations. This facility provided the pneumonia vaccine to 100 percent of its residents. Vaccines are a great way to avoid unnecessary deaths for seniors. Lastly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. While it had 2.38 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, its risk adjusted score was better than most nursing homes due to it having more complex patients.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

The next area we graded was short-term care, where this nursing home was awarded a grade of B. While this turned out to be its poorest category grade, this is nevertheless a quality grade. Short-term care ratings are vital for residents requiring rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually mandates higher levels of skilled nursing. This includes a vast range of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other types of therapy. One of this nursing home's strengths is registered nurse hours. We found that it offers more care from registered nurses to its residents than most facilities. The last item we assessed in this area is the percentage of patients who eventually returned home from the nursing home. It performed respectably with 47.1 percent of its patients returning home.
