Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

We also wanted to point out the fact that this nursing home has received near flawless government inspections in recent years. We gave them an impressive grade of A+ in this area. Arguably the most significant factor we consider in computing our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Facilities with better grades in this area typically dodged the more severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. While this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none were severe 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: A-minus

Adding to its top-shelf profile, this facility also was given a strong long-term care grade, with a score of A-. Facilities that excel in long-term care typically provide residents with better supervision and stay on top of routine healthcare services. Once we looked at the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then looked at the facility's vaccination data. This facility vaccinated 94.32773 percent of its patients for pneumonia. Vaccines are vital to keeping residents out of the hospital. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

Adding to its profile, this facility also earned a grade of B+ for its nursing rating. This is a well above average score in this category. There are numerous criteria within this area. Most of the datapoints reflect the quantity and quality of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.3 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 place has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can frequently be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The final area we scored is short-term care. We gave this nursing home a decent score in that category, with a grade of C. Although this isn't on par with many of this nursing home's other grades, it is nevertheless a middle of the pack score. In computing our short-term care ratings, we analyze the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our objective is to formulate a scale for comparing the rehabilitation services of nursing homes. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. However, based on the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last measure we looked at in this category is the number of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We discovered that just 4.7 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is actually below average.
