Facility Inspections

Grade: A

On top of earning a strong overall grade, this nursing home also received excellent government inspections recently. We gave it one of our highest scores in that category, with an A. Perhaps the most important factor we consider in calculating our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes with higher scores in this category typically avoided the more severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. While this facility had a few minor dings on its report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G through L. This means CMS didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

On the list of its many dominant scores, this facility was awarded a top-shelf short-term care score. In fact, we awarded it a score of A in this area. Short-term care scores are based on the facility's quantity of highly-skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This includes a vast scope of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, not to mention other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last datapoint we looked at in this area is the percentage of residents that eventually returned home from the nursing home. We found that 5.7 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

Another one of this facility's impressive category grades came in the area of nursing care. We awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with a grade of B+. Our nursing score focuses on the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. We weigh both the levels of skill of those nurses as well as the number of hours spent with patients. This nursing home provides 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This place performed very well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Turning to our fourth category, this nursing home received an excellent long-term care score. In fact, we awarded it a B+ in this area, rounding out one of our more favorable profiles. For prospective patients in need of a permanent place to live rather than skilled nursing, long-term care grades are an important measure. After assessing the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination records. This facility vaccinated 79.36508 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is a bit less than we were hoping for but still a reasonably acceptable figure. Although its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we like to see, at least this place was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
