Facility Inspections

Grade: A

To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A for our inspections rating. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining our inspection ratings. One of those factors is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more important than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies end up being relatively minor. Although this place had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were severe based on CMS' scale. A few minor dings are not something to panic about.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This nursing home was given a strong long-term care score as well. We awarded it one of our better scores in that area with a score of B+. Facilities that do well in this category typically provide patients with more supervision and stay on top of routine healthcare services. Once we assessed the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This facility vaccinated 96.813354 percent of its patients for pneumonia. Vaccines are critical to keeping patients healthy. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This facility also was given an impressive short-term care score. In fact, we awarded it an above average grade of B+ in this category. In the category of short-term care, we endeavor to qualify measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We look at a nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. Unfortunately, we were not able to track down registered nurse or physical therapy staffing data for this facility. Finally, we assessed the number of residents who who were able to eventually return home from this facility. We found that 6.2 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

The final category we rated ended up being this nursing home's weakest area. However, even in its worst category we still awarded it an acceptable grade of B- for our nursing category. We assessed the levels of nurses working for the facility, in addition to the quantity of time the nurses spent with residents, in determining our grade in this area. This nursing home averages just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this place fared better in some of the quality-based metrics we assessed. In fact, it performed well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good measures of the quality of nursing care. In some cases, the quality of nursing care is every bit as important as the number of hours of care provided.
