Facility Inspections

Grade: A

On top of performing well overall, this nursing home earned an excellent inspection report. As a result, we gave it one of our highest scores in this area with an A. Inspection scores weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This facility received 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This tells you that CMS didn't consider any of these deficiencies an immediate threat to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

This facility also was elite in the category of long-term care, where we awarded it a score of A-. Very few nursing homes received a better grade in this category. When facilities receive this type of grade in long-term care it is typically a good sign for resident care and indicates that the place is well-staffed with nurses and aids. After we finished looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination record. This nursing home vaccinated 99.23077 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia is often a life threatening health condition for nursing home residents so we prefer when a nursing home does not take any chances. Finally, 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.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

To complement its strong performance in other areas, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A for our inspections rating. Our nursing rating analyzes the facility's level of nurse staffing. We look at both the levels of training of the nurses as well as the number of hours spent with residents. This particular nursing home provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality-based metrics and this place excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any facility the state in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can generally be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as by employing a policy of moving a resident more often.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The final category we scored was short-term care, where this facility received a B-. This proved to be this facility's worst area. This is nevertheless nothing to be ashamed of. Short-term care grades are based on a facility's quantity of skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This includes a broad range of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final datapoint we considered in this category is the number of residents that eventually returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 3.7 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home. Unfortunately, this was below average.
