Facility Inspections

Grade: A

On top of earning a strong overall rating, this facility performed even better in the area of inspections which is based on the facility's recent inspection reports. In fact, we gave it an A for this area, which is one of our best scores. Arguably the most significant factor we look at in computing our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes with better scores in this category typically dodged the more severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. Although this nursing home had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were serious based on CMS' scale. We should note that deficiency-free inspections are rare in the industry.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Contributing to its profile, this facility also received a grade of B+ for its long-term care rating. This is an above average score in this area. If you are looking for services other than rehabilitation, you should take a close look at long-term care scores. After we finished looking at the amount of nursing care, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination data. This facility vaccinated 61.57113 percent of its residents for pneumonia. Although its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we hoped for, we were pleased to find place was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

This facility is also strong in the area of nursing, where it received a grade of B. It outperformed most nursing homes in this category. Nursing grades are mostly tied to the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This particular nursing home provided 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This place performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a facility has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can typically be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

Turning to our last area, this nursing home received a highly favorable short-term care rating. This nursing home did not end up having any noticeable weaknesses. In computing our short-term care grades, we assess the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The purpose is to formulate a tool for comparing the rehabilitation services of different facilities. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we assessed the percentage of residents who returned home from this nursing home. We found that 4.9 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
