Facility Inspections

Grade: A

On top of receiving a strong overall score, this nursing home also received top notch inspections in recent years. We gave them one of our better scores in that category, with a grade of A. Arguably the most significant factor we look at in determining our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities with higher grades in this category typically avoided the more severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. This nursing home received 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This indicates that CMS did not deem any of these deficiencies an immediate threat to resident safety or health. A few relatively minor dings aren't the end of the world.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This facility was given a strong long-term care grade as well. We gave it one of our higher grades in that area with a grade of B+. Long-term care grades of this caliber generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. One of the datapoints we considered on top of nursing hours was vaccines. This nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccination to 100 percent of its patients. This is a proven method to minimize unnecessary deaths for the elderly population. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This nursing home is also strong in the category of short-term care, where it was awarded a grade of B+. It outperformed most facilities in this area. With our short-term care score, we seek to create a sound gauge for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we analyze a facility's scope of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. Unfortunately, it does not look like this facility submitted data regarding its registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. The final statistic we assessed in this area is the percentage of residents that eventually returned home from the facility. We found that 6.3 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

Switching gears to the final category, this nursing home was given an acceptable nursing grade. While this isn't nearly as good as some of its other grades, this is truly not a terrible score. We assessed the levels of nurses working for the facility, as well as the quantity of hours the nurses spent with patients, in computing our grade in this category. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This figure is significantly below the national average. Lastly, we also assessed several nursing quality-based metrics. Although this nursing home got docked a bit for nursing hours per resident, it actually excelled in a few of these quality-based measures. With fewer than five percent of its residents suffering from pressure ulcers, it did well in this statistic. This can be an indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can many times be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as having a protocol of moving patients more frequently.
