Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

This facility received a strong overall grade as described above, but we especially wanted to emphasize its nearly flawless health inspections in recent years. We gave it an A+ in this area. Perhaps the most important factor we look at in computing our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Places with higher scores in this area most likely dodged the more severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. While this place had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none were serious 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

This facility also received a favorable long-term care grade. Indeed, we gave it an above average grade of B+ in this category. Nursing homes that receive this type of grade in long-term care typically provide consistent around the clock care to make sure patients are well cared for. In addition to assessing the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients, which is much higher than most nursing homes. Lastly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facility's next best category was short-term care. In that area, we gave this facility a B-. Short-term care grades are based on a nursing home's quantity of skilled nursing services. This includes a vast range of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, in addition to other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last measure we looked at in this area is the percentage of residents that were able to return home from the facility. We found that just 5.1 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

The final area we analyzed is nursing. We awarded this facility a grade of C in that category. In determining a nursing home's nursing score, we assess the quantity of hours nurses are caring for patients and the levels of training of the nurses. This place provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Finally, despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours per resident, this nursing home actually performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is usually an indicator that a nursing home has sufficient quality controls in place.
