Facility Inspections

Grade: A

One of the reasons this turned out to be a strong nursing home is that it earned a very impressive inspection rating. In fact, inspections is its best category grade. In that category, we awarded this facility a grade of A. Inspection grades are tied to many pieces of information found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes that receive favorable grades in this category tend to have few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these nursing homes generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. While this facility had a few deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were serious based on CMS' deficiency scale. Keep in mind that deficiency-free inspections are uncommon in this industry.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

This nursing home received high grades in the category of short-term care as well. In fact, we awarded it one of our most dominant scores in that area with a score of A-. With our short-term care assessment, we seek to craft a valuable barometer for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we analyze a facility's offerings of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last datapoint we looked at in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We discovered that 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

Adding to this nursing home's list of strengths, it also received an excellent nursing grade. We awarded them an impressive grade of A- in this category. Our nursing grade includes quite a few subcategories, most of which are associated with levels of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This place performed very well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The next area we analyzed was long-term care, in which this nursing home was awarded a C. While this proved to be its least impressive category rating, this is still nothing to be ashamed of. If you are seeking anything other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at long-term care scores. Once we assessed the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination records. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is more than the vast majority of nursing homes. Lastly, this facility was also able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
