Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

In addition to receiving a great overall score, this nursing home also received top notch inspections in recent years. We awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with an A+. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining our inspection scores. One key factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be relatively insignificant. While this nursing home had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were major deficiencies 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: B

This nursing home is also strong in the area of long-term care, where it received a grade of B. It outpaced most nursing homes in this area. If you are seeking services other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each facility's long-term care scores. Once we assessed the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 59.88701 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which happens to be somewhat lower than we were hoping for but still a decent figure. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The next category we looked at was short-term care. In that area, we awarded this facility a decent grade of B-. In the area of short-term care, we attempt to qualify measures of a facility's rehabilitation. We analyze the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not all facilities employs these types of nurses. However, based on the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last metric we looked at in this category is the percentage of residents who who were able to eventually return home from the facility. We found that just 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

The last category we assessed is nursing. This facility received a grade of B- for this area. Our nursing grade weighs several subcategories. The most heavily weighted factor is the number of hours nurses spent with patients. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This figure is significantly below the national average. Finally, our nursing grades also consider quality-based measures, such as preventing major falls. Despite not having the highest total nursing hours per resident, this nursing home actually performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is typically a reliable indicator that a nursing home has sufficient quality controls in place. Many falls can be avoided if a facility supplies enough nurses to assist its patients.
