Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

On top of earning a great overall grade, this nursing home fared even better in our inspections category which is associated with the nursing home's recent inspection reports. In fact, we gave it a grade of A- for this area, which is one of our best grades. Arguably the most critical factor we consider in computing our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes with better grades in this area typically dodged the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. Although this place had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were serious based on CMS' deficiency scale. Keep in mind that deficiency-free inspections are uncommon in this industry.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

We also gave this facility a score of A- for our short-term care grade. In our short-term care grade, we strive to forge a meaningful barometer for rehabilitation. In this process, we assess a facility's scope of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. We were not able to locate information on registered nurse or physical therapy staffing for this nursing home. The final statistic we considered in this area is the number of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that 6.6 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home's next highest category was long-term care. In that area, we gave this nursing home a B-. Long-term care grades are based in part on the nursing home's amount of nursing care. This includes a vast spectrum of personal care services, ranging from assistance with activities of daily living to routine healthcare services. Once we finished looking at the amount of nursing care, we then looked at the facility's vaccination record. We were pleased to learn that this nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients for pneumonia. Finally, this facility was also able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

The last category we graded was nursing. For this category, we awarded this nursing home a C. The nursing rating assesses quite a few factors, many of which are associated with nursing hours. This place provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Lastly, we also assessed several nursing quality measures. While this place got docked a bit for nursing hours per resident, it excelled in a few of these quality-based metrics. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it did very well in this statistic. This is often a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can generally be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as having a system of turning residents at least once a day.
