Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

This nursing home received a solid overall grade as described above, but we really wanted to point out its excellent health inspections in recent years. We gave them an impressive grade of A+ in this category. Inspection scores weigh a host of factors included in a facility's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we look at is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Places with higher grades in this category typically have few severe deficiencies. Although this facility had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. We should point out that deficiency-free inspections are rare in the industry.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

We also awarded this nursing home a middle of the road grade in the category of short-term care, where it received a B-. Our short-term care ratings are based on the nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled nursing services. This includes a broad scope of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, in addition to other types of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final metric we assessed in this category is the number of residents who returned home from the facility. We found that just 5.2 percent of this facility's patients returned home. Unfortunately, this was below the national average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

Next, we looked at the nursing category where we awarded this nursing home a grade of C, which is a decent grade. Our nursing rating is based on the nursing home's nurse staffing levels. We look at both the levels of licensure of the nurses and the number of hours spent with patients. This nursing home averages just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Finally, our nursing grades also consider quality-based measures, such as preventing major falls. Despite not having the highest total nursing hours per resident, this place actually performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is typically an indicator that a place has sufficient quality controls in place. Some falls can be avoided if a facility provides enough nurses aids to assist its patients.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

Moving on to the final area, this facility was given a C for long-term care, which is a decent score. In a long-term care environment, the facility's primary objective is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate residents. After considering the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination records. This facility vaccinated 99.70846 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is higher than the majority of nursing homes. Finally, this facility was also able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
