Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

In addition to being a respectable nursing home overall, this facility really excelled in the category of inspections, where it received a grade of A+. Few nursing homes performed better in this category. Perhaps the most critical factor we consider in determining our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Places with higher scores in this area typically avoided the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. Although this facility had a few deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. The fact that none of the deficiencies were severe made us feel better about this inspection report.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

This nursing home also was awarded a positive long-term care grade. Indeed, we awarded them a B in this area, which happens to be one of our more favorable scores. When facilities receive this kind of grade in this category it is a good sign for resident care and suggests that the place is well-staffed with nurses aids. After considering the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its residents for pneumonia. Vaccines are critical to keeping patients healthy. Lastly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

The next highest grade we gave this nursing home in any area came in the category of nursing, where we gave it a grade of B-. When computing our nursing scores, we weigh both staffing levels and the levels of licensure of the nurses. This place provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This is a relatively low total compared with most nursing homes. Lastly, despite not having the highest total nursing hours, this facility performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is generally an indicator that a facility has quality controls in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The last category we graded was short-term care, which turned out to be this nursing home's least impressive category. It received an F for this area, which is certainly a major concern. In the category of short-term care, we strive to qualify measures of a facility's rehabilitation. We analyze the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including the ones performed by registered nurses and various therapists. Unfortunately, this facility was below average in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours offered to its residents based on the metrics we considered. The final metric we looked at in this category is the percentage of residents that ultimately were able to return home from the facility. This facility struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 2.3 percent of its residents returning home.
