Facility Inspections

Grade: A

One of the reasons this place is a quality facility is that it earned an impressive inspection score. Inspections turned out to be its best category grade. In that area, we awarded this facility an A. Inspection ratings take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these issues by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Although this facility had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Additionally, this facility also was awarded favorable long-term care grades this year. In fact, we awarded it one of our stronger scores in that category, with a score of B+. Long-term care ratings of this caliber generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. On top of considering the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 98.60627 percent of its residents. Vaccines are vital to keeping residents healthy. Finally, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This nursing home was given an impressive short-term care grade as well. We awarded it one of our higher scores in that area with a grade of B+. In crafting these short-term care scores, we analyze the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The goal is to formulate a measure for comparing the rehabilitation services of nursing homes. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. However, according to the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last statistic we assessed in this category is the number of patients that eventually returned home from the nursing home. We found that 5.5 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

The final area we assessed is nursing. This facility was awarded a favorable nursing score in our assessment, with a B-. Even though this is not quite as dominant as a few of its other grades, this is nevertheless a decent score in this category. Our nursing rating analyzes the nursing home's nurse staffing levels. We factor in both the levels of licensure of the nurses as well as the quantity of hours spent with residents. This nursing home provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This is a relatively low total compared to most other nursing homes. Finally, nursing grades also consider quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. Despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours per resident, this facility performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is typically a good indicator that a facility has sufficient quality controls in place. Many falls can be avoided if a nursing home supplies enough nurses aids to assist its patients.
