Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

In addition to being a great overall grade, this facility also received A+ health inspections in recent years. Its inspections were virtually flawless. Inspection ratings account for several factors found on a facility's inspection report. One key criteria we rely on is the number and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with better scores in this area generally have very few severe deficiencies. This facility received 7 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This indicates that CMS did not consider any of these deficiencies to cause an immediate risk to resident safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

Contributing to its strong resume, this facility also was given a dominant short-term care score, with a score of A. With our short-term care assessment, we seek to craft a meaningful barometer for rehabilitation services. In this process, we analyze the facility's levels of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we considered the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 6.3 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

This facility received a strong long-term care grade as well. We awarded it one of our higher scores in that area with a score of B. Nursing homes that excel in this category typically provide residents with closer supervision and stay on top of routine medical care. After considering the amount of nursing care, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination data. This facility vaccinated 99.38462 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is very impressive. Pneumonia sadly can be a life threatening illness for nursing home patients so we like it when a facility doesn't roll the dice on this issue. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

The last category we looked at proved to be this facility's weakest category. Nevertheless, even in its weakest link we still gave it an acceptable grade of B- in nursing. Our nursing score features a variety of factors. The most heavily weighted variable is the quantity of hours nurses spend with patients. This place provides only 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This is a somewhat alarming figure as it is well below the national average. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this place surprisingly fared better in some of the quality-based metrics we looked at. In fact, it scored well when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be indicators of the quality of nursing care. In some cases, the quality of nursing care is as important as the quantity of hours of care provided.
