Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

We also wanted to point out the fact that this nursing home earned near flawless government inspections in recent years. We gave them an A+ in this area. Arguably the most critical factor we consider in calculating our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities with higher grades in this category typically dodged the more severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. While this place had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were serious based on CMS' scale. Remember that deficiency-free inspection reports are rare in this industry.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

This facility really excelled in the area of nursing, where it received a grade of A-. Few nursing homes performed better in this area. Nursing ratings are heavily correlated with levels of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This place performed very well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

In addition, this nursing home also was given favorable short-term care scores this year. Indeed, we gave it one of our higher grades in that category, with a grade of B+. In determining our short-term care scores, we assess the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The purpose is to formulate a scale for comparing the rehabilitation services of different nursing homes. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not all facilities employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of patients that ultimately were able to return home from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

This nursing home's worst category is long-term care, which is the last area we analyzed. For this area, we gave this nursing home a D. We want to to draw your attention to this possible weak link, however, you shouldn't over-emphasize a single area either. For residents in need of a permanent place to live as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care is a very important category. After considering the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then looked at the facility's vaccination record. This nursing home vaccinated 98.958336 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is more than most nursing homes. To our surprise, this facility also keeps its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had just 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Sadly, a few of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.
